Tree planting program

We have an annual tree planting program. The planting season runs from May to September (or April to October if weather conditions permit).

Nature strip tree planting

We aim to have at least one tree in front of every property if the location is suitable; the tree species are guided by the street and park tree selection guide and we consider the suitability of the tree for the specific site conditions.

If you would like to request a new nature strip tree, please make your request before 31 December. Planting lists are closed and finalised in January.

Requests can be submitted via our request a new nature strip tree form.

Caring for your nature strip tree

  • Juvenile trees are subject to a two-year establishment program, which includes watering, mulching and formative pruning.
  • Regularly water your tree to help grow, survive and flourish. A bucket of water twice a week in warm weather and once a week in mild weather.
  • Mowers and whipper-snippers can damage the base of the tree. This damage can interfere with sap flow, leaving the tree more easily susceptible to pests and disease.
