Request a Street tree form

Street Tree Planting Request Form

Council’s Request a Tree form aims to encourage residents to request an appropriate tree for planting outside their own home on the nature strip or verge. This is a free Council service, however Council staff will need to visit and check that a new tree won't obstruct traffic views or impact under or above ground services (water and electricity).

  1. Go to our street tree map
  2. Enter your address to see your recommended trees
  3. Make a list of what trees you'd like (a list of trees is also available in our Street Tree Masterplan PDF, 8942.64 KB)
  4. Complete this form
  5. Respond to your request. Request a tree - flowchart
    Each year Randwick City Council responds to resident’s requests to plant new and replacement trees outside their homes and units on the nature strip or verge. To ensure our street trees survive, we will only plant during the cooler months, usually around April to September. If you request a tree as we approach summer or early autumn, you may find it takes longer for your street tree to be planted. As most of our street trees are native or indigenous trees that we often source from our Community Nursery, they are usually better suited to local weather conditions and this tends to give the trees the best possible start to a long life.
  6. Congratulations! You have a new street tree!
    Council has just planted a new street tree outside your property. Street trees provide shade, produce oxygen, reduce noise and pollution, provide habitat and food source for native birds and other fauna and generally improve the visual amenity of the City’s street scapes. In the longer term they also increase property values and contribute to an improved sense of wellbeing within the community.
    Please help take care of this tree to ensure it survives. Your involvement in this very worthwhile program would be TREE-MENDOUS!
    Council is able to prioritise requests for street trees where residents elect to be the custodians of new street trees. *For more information How to care for a new tree

Please note: the final decision on tree species and planting approval will be made by the assessing tree officer. This decision will be based on approved tree species, stock availability, site suitability, and planting approval will be made by the assessing tree officer. If your choice is not available, we will find the best option for your street.
