2018 Somerset Free Tree Scheme 2018 Somerset Free Tree Scheme

Somerset Regional Council is pleased to again offer Somerset residents free trees for their properties.

Residents are entitled to either two or ten free trees upon presentation of the Free Tree Voucher, attached to this newsletter, when redeemed at one of three distribution days at Fernvale, Kilcoy and Esk during October.

A Free Tree Voucher will entitle residents living on a suburban/house block to two free trees.

Land for Wildlife participants and residents who live on properties larger than 20 acres are entitled to 10 free trees upon presentation of their Free Tree Voucher and a current rates notice (to validate their claim).

Plants that will be available to residents living on suburban/house blocks for residential gardens will be flowering and bird attracting species, and will include Council’s floral emblem plants – Weeping Bottlebrush and Native Frangipani.

Plants provided for Land for Wildlife participants and properties larger than 20 acres will be native trees appropriate for revegetation and habitat plantings, with a particular focus on koala food trees.

PLEASE NOTE:

Landholders with properties larger than 20 acres will need to present a current rates notice with their Free Tree Voucher (to verify their entitlement). Landholders with multiple parcels over 20 acres will only be entitled to a maximum of 10 trees (regardless of the number of landholdings).

Land for Wildlife participants and landholders with properties larger than 20 acres are also able to redeem two free trees suitable for residential gardens and eight native trees for revegetation and habitat plantings, if preferred.
