The City of Joondalup is encouraging residents to join its verge tree planting program.

Its residents can have a tree planted for free on their street verge, with applications closing on March 31.

Several types of trees such as tuart, bottlebrush, Rottnest tea-tree and swamp mallee are available, with selections assessed for suitability by a City officer.

Joondalup Mayor Troy Pickard said the City was committed to ‘developing a rich and diverse urban forest’.

Though the new street trees become the City’s responsibility, residents are asked to give a newly planted tree at least one deep watering (40 litres) a week in the dry months for the first three years.

Residents can call the City if they see trees that need replacing.
