Street trees are vital to the urban character of our neighbourhood, including trees in our parks. We can advise you on tree plantings, and arrange damaged or diseased trees to be inspected.
Individual tree planting occurs every year. Residents who require a tree for their nature strip should contact us.
If you are enquiring about the maintenance of street trees or tree maintenance in parks you should also contact us.
Damaged Street Trees
Have you noticed a damaged, dead or diseased tree on your neighbourhood or in a local park?
- Advise us of the location of the tree.
- We will arrange for an arborist to inspect the tree within the next 5 working days.
- If you are a resident, a card will be left in your letter box advising you when and what action is to be taken.

Watering Street Trees
Under the Yarra Valley Water Drought Response Plan, street tree watering with a mobile watertanker has exemption under every stage of water restrictions. Darebin has obtained the relevant exemption to continue the program.
Residents are encouraged to water newly planted street trees in accordance with current restrictions. Mature drought tolerant trees should not require additional water unless during times of extreme drought in which case residents are advised to use grey water.
