Nominate a Tree

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

This page has been created so that you can nominate trees that you think are significant & should be protected by a Significant Tree Register.  Until we develop an online form all you need to do is e-mail off@oatleypark.com  with the address of the tree & briefly state why it is significant and attach a jpg photo. Your details will not be published.
