SOMERSET Regional Council’s free tree offer is back just in time for spring.

Residents can redeem their free tree voucher from the latest edition of the Somerset Lifestyle newsletter at distribution days in Kilcoy, Fernvale and Esk.

Residents living on a suburban/house block are entitled to two free trees, while Land for Wildlife participants and residents on properties larger than 20 acres are entitled to 10 trees upon presentation of the voucher and a current rate notice.

Mayor Graeme Lehmann said the popular program was focused on a clean and green Somerset.

“Plants for residential gardens will include council’s floral emblems – Weeping Bottlebrush and Native Frangipani,” Cr Lehmann said.

“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 focus on koala food trees.”

Trees can be collected between 8am and 11am at the following locations:

• Yowie Park, Kilcoy: Saturday, 5 October

• Fernvale Memorial Park, Fernvale: Saturday, 12 October

• Pipeliner Park, Esk: Saturday, 19 October
