Greening Warringah - Street Tree Planting Program

This consultation has concluded."

We are planning to improve our streetscapes by planting a variety of trees along selected nature reserves. 

We would also like to hear from you if you would like Council to consider planting a tree in future years adjacent to your property or in your street.

    We have now finalised our species selection for the selected streets for this financial year. The trees will be planted in April.

    The submissions received for proposed planting locations will be considered as part of an upcoming planting programme for the 2014/15 financial year.

  • Have Your Say

    by site admin 1, almost 4 years ago

    We would like to hear your comments on the proposed street tree planting program. A number of streets have been identified for us to plant additional trees. You can use our interactive map to leave comments.

    You can also nominate where you would like Council to consider planting a tree in future years adjacent to your property or in your street. All suggestions will be assessed against suitability criteria, this could include but is not limited to soil condition, in-fill opportunities, site is for a street tree (not nature park, beach etc), resource and support requirements, compatibility with built structures and power lines as well as existing species and the environment.  We would also like to hear if you are able to help maintain and care for these trees.

    How to make comments

    Please send your feedback marked “Street Tree Planting Program”:

    Comments close 29 November 2013.

    Trees that need to be removed or pruned outside of the proposed locations are outside of this project. You can request a service by calling Council on 9942 2111 or visit the request a service section of our web site. Request a Service

  • A Palette of Trees

    by site admin 1, almost 4 years ago

    We have identified 17 sites on Council managed land across Warringah that have potential for additional street trees. These sites were chosen due to the space available and also the improved outlook and amenity that additional trees would give these streets.

    A list of potential species has been developed based on their resilience, hardiness and aesthetic appeal. These species also meet the requirements of Council's Street Tree Planting Policy which considers potential hazards and risks including disease.

    As part of the process existing trees may need to be removed if they are diseased, are not thriving because they are not suited to the site, and are potentially at odds with future trees planned for the street.

    Warringah’s street trees are considered a valuable asset that provide many environmental, aesthetic, social and economic benefits to the community. The number of trees has been decreasing over the past few years due to natural decline and where the trees were removed as they had become a hazard. 

    Council is planning a planting programme in Autumn 2014 that aims to:
    •    Increase tree canopy for the local area
    •    Enhance streetscapes through appropriate street tree planting
    •    Provide environmental, aesthetic, social and economic improvements
    •    Improve risk management through selecting the “right tree for the right location”.
    •    Reduce plant mortality through community involvement and best practice planting techniques

    Council is proposing to plant additional trees in streets that have been previously requested by the community and also in areas that have available space and will provide a positive outcome for the streetscape. 

    The expected benefits for the community will include improving the look of our streets, reducing the heat island affects of areas without trees, improved environmental benefits.
