Street trees


Residents can request their property frontage be listed for consideration in the annual planting program, done annually from June - August. 

Requested locations are inspected prior to winter to determine the species and number of trees that can be planted.  To maintain consistency across streetscape works within the Town, species selection is generally determined by taking into consideration the existing species and environmental conditions.  

Local streetscapes and the wider community benefit from street trees in a variety of ways including:

  • Cooling the air
  • Filter urban pollutants
  • Increase property values (leafy suburbs)
  • Increase urban biodiversity 
  • Improve mental and physical health

    Responsible for maintaining street trees

    Street trees are living assets of the Town. The Town is responsible for the maintenance of all trees within verge areas including planting, pruning and removal.

    Where overhead power lines are present, street trees are required to be pruned by the Town in accordance with Western Power requirements for the clearance of overhead power lines.
