Did you know Council has a policy on street trees? This means that the Shire is responsible for all street trees which includes planting and pruning. If there is a street tree on your property that needs to be pruned, please don’t do it yourself! Give our Parks and Environment team a call on 90710666 and they will arrange a time to investigate. Would you like a street tree? Please let us know and we may be able get one for you, but please don’t plant it yourself. There are many factors to consider when planting a tree in a verge including above ground powerlines, line of sight, particularily when people back out of driveways, and the alignment of other services that may be underground such as water, power, telephone cables and gas.
