Tree Planting Requests on Council Land
Do you have a vacant tree pit or grass verge in front of your house? If you do and would like Council to plant a tree, lets us know! Council is currently planting trees as part of our annual street tree planting program and we are looking for suitable sites for next year's program.
If you would like a street tree to be planted outside your property please email email@example.com or call 02 4868 0888 with your request.
You may only request a street tree for a location directly outside your property.
Once Council has received a request, Council’s tree and vegetation management officer will determine if the site is suitable. As part of this assessment process, Council will consider the above and below ground infrastructure and any future upgrades to the road or footpath environment.
Recommended tree species are provided within Council’s Street Tree Master Plan, if a different species is sought this can be discussed with the Officer. Property owners who request a street tree must be agreeable to watering the new tree for an establishment period, minimum of 6 months.
Residents can donate suitable trees to be planted by Council, on Council managed land.
