Street Tree Planting

Infill tree planting

Every year, Council undertakes street tree planting to enhance our leafy green environment and ensure that our community receives all of the benefits offered by trees. Using low cost high technology satellite imagery Council has assessed each street in Knox for canopy cover. Council’s Infill planting program is guided by need, so that areas of low canopy coverage are planted as a priority.

New trees are planted between the months of May and August, whilst the soil is moist and the rain is plentiful. The trees are semi-advanced stock 1m to 1.5m in height. They are monitored monthly by Council for the first two years of their life, and watered using recycled water over the warmer months.

Under the infill planting program, as per Council’s Green Streets Policy and Street Tree Asset Management Plan, where a street has a strong existing theme, Council will select new trees that will match or complement the existing streetscape and all free planting spaces will be filled.
