Would you like a street tree planted on your verge?
All City of Kwinana residents have the opportunity to join in promoting more liveable communities by applying for a street tree to be planted on your verge, which the City will supply and plant at no cost.
Street trees help improve the health of our communities, by improving the appearance of streets, reducing the urban heating, and provide shade and shelter for the environment.
Landowners are entitled to one tree per 20 metres of verge. A normal residential Lot shall be allocated one tree, a corner property maybe allocated two. Rural Lots are entitled to one tree every 30 metres (all are subject to available funding each year).
The annual tree planting program is undertaken in the winter months between May and June, and is subject to stock and availability of species.
Although residents have the opportunity to request a particular species, the City’s Parks team will need to determine the most suitable species for your address with consideration to;
- Above and below ground services
- Size and width of verge
- Existing streetscapes species in your area
The City is responsible to determine the appropriate location for the tree, as well as the manual tree watering for the first two years.
To apply for a street tree, please complete the below form. If you require any further information, please contact the City Operations Team on 9236 4350.
