Significant tree register

The National Trust (WA) and The Tree Society initiated the Register of Significant Trees in the early 1990s, aiming to preserve specimens and raise public awareness about the value of trees. 

What makes a significant tree special?

Trees on the register are assessed based on specific criteria, such as aesthetic value, old age, rare species, commemorative value, and associations with public figures or cultural heritage.

How can I nominate a tree for the list?

To nominate a tree, please complete the Town's significant tree register nomination form below.

What happens after a nomination is put forward?

Parks staff assess and evaluate the nominated trees, assigning a rating from one to five based on their retention value. The most suitable rating is determined by considering the tree's worth and estimated remaining life.
