How to have YourSay

In keeping with the Urban Forest Strategy, the ACT Government is planting 54,000 trees across the ACT from 2021 to 2024 to increase our tree canopy cover. The Canberra community is helping identify where trees should go, with planting locations focusing on areas where there aren't many trees or where existing trees are ageing or dying.

Please use the interactive map below to tell us where you think a tree should be planted.

Each year for the Spring and Autumn programs an audit of sites is undertaken prior to planting commencing to determine the suitability of sites for a new tree and the sites identified by Canberrans using the map below will be visited. We will investigate all proposed locations and if deemed appropriate we will plant a tree in the identified location.

Please note that there may be a delay in plantings depending on the circumstances of the location and the availability of tree species.
