Draft Sunshine Coast Street Tree Master Plan

Draft Sunshine Coast Street Tree Master Plan cover image

Ensuring council plants the right trees in the right locations is more important than ever.

The Draft Sunshine Coast Street Tree Master Plan provides a framework to guide future street tree planting in the Sunshine Coast Council region. It details why trees are so important, communicates the region’s street tree planting priorities and provides guidance for locations, layouts and species to use.

The plan outlines council's approach and commitment to not just sustaining, but enhancing the region's existing street tree canopy cover over time, by planting the right trees in the right locations and planting more of them.

Have your say on the draft plan to help council better plan for, and manage, new street trees.

The draft plan is presented in two parts:

You can read a quick overview of the plan instead, or just open the street tree strategy for your local area from the sidebar.

Tremendous Tree Partnerships

In the future we will also be looking for tree custodians who can partner with us to care for young street trees.

An 'Adopt a Street Tree' program for residential streets is currently under development and council is inviting registrations of interest. If you would like to see more trees planted in your street or in a nearby location and can help care for these trees while they establish, we want to hear from you.

The competition to win local nursery vouchers has been drawn and all winners have been notified.

Provide feedback and automatically enter the draw to win a $250 voucher for a nursery near you (three to win).

All respondents are also invited to collect a free shade tree to plant within their properties from council's nursery at Industrial Avenue, Caloundra.

Submissions closed 5pm, 8 December 2017.

Printed survey forms are available for collection from all Sunshine Coast Council customer service centres.

Printed copies of the Draft Sunshine Coast Street Tree Master Plan (Parts A and B) are also available to view at these locations and Sunshine Coast libraries.

Feedback will be incorporated into the master plan and presented to council for endorsement once finalised.
