Verge Street Tree Planting Program

In 2020 the Town plans on planting over 170 trees on the verges of the following streets – Florence, Elizabeth, Geraldine, George, Graham Court, Grant, Curtin Avenue, Dean, Greenham, Griver, Haining Avenue, Hamersley, Hawkstone, Henry Road, John, Jarrad, Kathleen, Knowles, Lillian, Loma, Lyons, MacArthur, Mann, Margaret, Marine Parade, Marmion, Melville, Nailsworth, Napier, North, and Princess Street.

There are many advantages associated with an increased number of street trees including improved aesthetics, lower urban traffic speeds and lower urban air temperatures. More trees will also help mitigate climate change through contributing to urban forests and will support native bird species whose natural habitats are diminishing through urban development.

Species are in accordance with the Town’s Street Tree Masterplan. The planting is scheduled to take place during the winter months and is subject to availability of suitable stock.

Should you require any additional information please contact the Coordinator Environmental Projects, Adeline Morrissey, on 9285 5000. Letters have been sent to properties that have been identified as 'infill' sites.

If your verge was not identified as an ‘infill’ site and you would like a verge tree you may request one by contacting the Town at town@cottesloe.wa.gov.au
