Significant tree register

We are committed to the protection of significant trees in order to retain and enhance the overall landscape quality of the municipality for future generations.

Moreland Council is taking action to protect and plant more trees on public land in streets and parks. You can learn more about this in our Urban Forest Strategy 2017-2027 (PDF 9Mb).

To recognise, celebrate and protect significant trees on privately owned land, Council is establishing a Significant Tree Register of trees to be protected in the Merri-bek Planning Scheme.

How long do I have to make a nomination?
