Adopt a Street Tree


Each year Council offers local residents the chance to get involved in beautifying our region by caring for trees outside their homes.

There are numerous benefits of street trees including cooler streets, more bird and insect life, slowed storm water run off, improved air quality, noise reduction and added privacy. Council continues to care for a large number of trees in our region, but we’ve found that our street trees have a much better chance of prospering when they receive a little help and care from our residents, particularly when the trees are becoming established.

The Adopt a Street Tree program is a free initiative open to all towns across the Western Downs. To be involved, all you have to do is register your interest and you’ll be added to our list for future planting. Then, when your adopted tree arrives, simply keep an eye on it, give it a drink if it’s looking thirsty; and report any issues to our team to investigate. We’re here to help.

A number of tree species are used in the Adopt a Street Tree Program. Download the Factsheet to find out more!(PDF, 913KB)
