City of Melbourne Tree Planting Program

April 11, 2014

The City of Melbourne is targeting a planting rate of 3000 new trees per year in order to double our canopy cover by 2040. The planting season occurs between April and October. For information on where trees will be planted over 2013-2014, refer to our map of 2013-14 planting projects (PDF, 1.7MB)(External link).

We remain committed to the Urban Forest Strategy’s target of having no more than five per cent of one tree species within the municipality, and this year’s tree planting season will reflect this.

Residents will be notified when tree planting will occur in their streets. For more information on the 2014 tree planting season, please call the Urban Landscapes Branch on 9658 9658.
