Street tree planting

 The planting of street trees is considered in all transport related projects such as road rehabilitation, reseal, corridor and intersection improvement works. Council plants and maintains street trees to ensure residents and business owner/operators receive all the benefits trees bring to our region. Street trees help to:

  • provide cooler, greener, more comfortable pathways for walking and cycling
  • improve air quality
  • reduce and clean stormwater runoff
  • assist with traffic calming
  • add to the identity of our suburbs and the subtropical character of the region.
