Community tree planting program

The community tree planting program aims to encourage the participation of residents, families in community tree planting events across the City. The program also helps foster a sense of community pride and ownership of streetscapes, while spreading the word about the importance of street trees.

If you would like to help plant the street tree alongside your home, please contact us. You’ll receive a free tree care pack, plus, any children assisting you on the day will have the opportunity to name the tree and attach a name tag.

FAQs

Can my children participate in the community tree planting event?

We encourage families with young children to participate in planting trees along their street. This is a positive experience and educates them about the importance of street trees to our health, wellbeing and community. There is no minimum age to get started.

Please note, children must be supervised by a parent and/or guardian at all times to ensure their safety at a community tree planting event.

What do I need to bring to an event?

The City will supply all the necessary tools and equipment for the planting.

For your own benefit, it is recommended you wear SunSmart clothing and wear enclosed shoes if you wish to be hands on.

Do I need to register online to attend a community tree planting event?

Yes, please fill out the Street Tree Planting Project Enquiry form with your expression of interest.
