Western Downs Regional Council is bringing more trees to the streets for their popular Adopt a Street Tree program in 2018.

Council’s Adopt a Street Tree program is open to all towns across the Western Downs and it’s FREE to register your interest.

Council Spokesperson for Parks, Open Spaces and Cemeteries Councillor Carolyn Tillman said it was great to see the community get on board and really champion the planting of trees in their streets.

“I’ve heard lots of lovely comments about how all the towns are looking beautiful and adding to the welcoming feel of our communities,” she said.

“Over Christmas I heard from visitors to Dalby who were impressed with the new look of Dalby and all the trees lining the streets.

“It’s been fantastic to see our residents taking pride in their streets and jumping on board with the Adopt a Street Tree program.

“Our Parks and Open Spaces crew is doing an amazing job around all our towns and our communities are really appreciating their efforts. The crew have received many compliments on how beautiful our towns are.

“This year we’re encouraging our smaller communities to get involved in the program. Wouldn’t it be something special to see all our towns’ streets, big and small, lined with trees.”

Registrations for this year’s planting program are now open and will close Friday 16 March 2018.

Register your interest by calling 1300 COUNCIL or filling out our online form.
