We aim to plant the same tree species along a street to create aesthetically pleasing avenues of trees. The City only uses particular trees beneath powerlines to ensure they don't grow too tall and interfere with the lines.
If there is a tree you would really like from our list of approved street trees, we are happy to consider this and talk to you about your selection.
Due to the presence of underground services, all trees planted on verges need to be planted 2.7 metres from your boundary line towards the road. When a tree is located on the front verge, it will be positioned centrally between the driveway and side boundary, or at equal distance if there are driveways either side of the intended planting location.
When trees are to be planted on a side verge, they will be spaced evenly in the available space.
Consideration will be given to various pieces of infrastructure on the verge to ensure adequate space is maintained, such as reticulation, power poles, manhole covers and hydrants.
Requests for tree planting close on 31 December 2019.
