Significant Tree Register

Council has developed a significant tree register for trees on public and private land. The Urban Vegetation on Public Land policy applies only to public trees, with separate legislation applying to private trees.

Significant Trees are those showing exceptional significance assessed through rigorous criteria displaying historic, social, cultural, natural, biodiversity, visual or aesthetic values.

The Significant Tree Register is reviewed annually enabling trees to be added or removed from the register. Residents may apply to Council to have trees included or removed from this register.

Contact Council's Natural Resource Officer to enquire about the significant tree register. 



By using this service you agree to the terms and conditions.

If numbers are shown it indicates a cluster of markers showing the number of significant trees in that area. Please zoom into required region and select land to view details or use search function.
