Grants for regulated and significant tree maintenance
During March, the Council will be accepting applications from residents to access grants which offset the costs associated with maintaining regulated or significant trees.
The grants will be available to successful applicants for approved works that maintain or improve the health and/or safety of a tree located on private, residential land within the Council area.
“Regulated and significant trees are particularly important as they come under threat due to the ongoing pressures of urban in-fill development and the increasing costs of maintaining them,” said Mayor Robert Bria.
Approved grants will be offered as a reimbursement of up to 50 percent of the maintenance or improvement work, capped at $1,000 per tree.
Applications for Regulated or Significant Tree Maintenance Grants will be accepted from 1-31 March 2018.
