Request a free street tree!

Request a free street tree!

The City of Nedlands undertakes annual street tree planting each winter and is looking for nature strips (verges) to plant new street trees.

The City will plant a tree of a suitable species on your nature strip (verge) for FREE! 

Why ask the City for a tree this winter? There are many great reasons – but here’s a few:

  • Trees are an important part of the environment, and will make your street more attractive.
  • They provide shade and reduce temperatures during those hot summer months.
  • Studies show that trees add real value to your property.
  • The City will plant a new street tree for free and maintain it throughout the tree's lifetime.  We do ask that you kindly water them, especially during the hot dry summer months and during establishment.

Requesting a new tree will only take a minute in a couple of easy steps:

  1. Click here to contact us now. Otherwise email, call, pop in or write to us.
  2. Provide us with your name and address.
  3. Tell us if you have a specific choice of tree from the preferred species list. There are plenty of options to choose from provided in the links below.  If you don’t have a preference, the City will choose an appropriate species for you.
  4. All done – the City will organise planting during the next winter planting season.

Want more than one? 

Please let us know if you would like more than one tree and we will accommodate this if we can. 

Missed the last planting season?

Let us know anyway. If we missed you this time ,we can add you to our list to plant a new tree for you next planting season.

What if I don't have much space on the nature strip (verge)?

Unfortunately, we will only be able to fulfil your request if there is enough space to fit a new tree on your nature strip (verge).
