Tree Nominations – Community Input Needed

Unlike many Councils in Sydney, Georges River Council does not have a Significant Tree register for all valuable trees, it only has ones of heritage interest.

If Council does not protect our significant trees we are likely to lose most if not all our old trees that were planted when the suburbs were first established. 

A Significant Tree Register is being established by OFF to protect trees on public land. This may be extended as the project develops.

Generally, trees are assessed to evaluate their importance in relation to:

  • The tree’s historic &/or natural value

  • The tree’s social, cultural & commemorative value

  • Its visual & aesthetic value

  • Whether the tree is particularly old or vulnerable

  • Whether it is a rare species of tree

  • If it has horticultural or genetic value

  • Whether it has natural significance

A form has been created so that you can nominate trees that you think are significant & should be protected by a Significant Tree Register.  Your personal details will not be published.
