Parks and Gardens assess all requests for tree planting. Trees are selected for planting based on their suitability for the site, the required characteristics of the species and potential to contribute to landscape character.
Street tree planting or replacement tree planting is not undertaken outside of township/urban boundaries.
Can I plant my own tree?
Unless approval is obtained, residents are not permitted to plant trees and shrubs within the naturestrip or other sites within the road reserve or a park. As Council is responsible for trees on road reserves and parks it is always best to contact us and discuss your proposal. It is important that only those tree species and planting locations deemed appropriate are utilised.
