Nominate now for the Classified Tree Register

You’re invited to nominate trees for inclusion in Council’s Classified Tree Register.

Trees on the Classified Tree Register are protected from indiscriminate damage and will ensure that they continue to contribute to the local identity and environment of our City.

There is currently one tree on the Register that is protected and gazetted. There are three listings on the nominated tree list, with more to be added in the near future. We are currently waiting for time periods to expire before listing these so we can be assured that landowners are aware of the nomination.

Glen Eira Mayor Cr Margaret Esakoff said trees have countless environmental, economic and social benefits. “Not only do trees protect us against the urban heat island effect, reduce stormwater run-off, absorb air pollution and provide habitat for fauna, but they reduce wind speeds during storm events and absorb up to 150 kilograms of carbon dioxide per year,” she said.

If you think a tree should be recognised as one of the most valuable and important trees in our City — whether it's in your garden or someone else's, on a nature strip, or in a public park — you can nominate it to be included in the Register.

The first round of nominations will close on 31 March. Following a careful assessment by Council arborists, the most valuable and important trees will be included on the Register. Further rounds of nominations will be open after we have considered the trees nominated in the previous round.

For further information and to nominate, see here on our website.
