Our yearly free tree giveaway scheduled for 28 March has been postponed. The safety of our communities, customers and staff is a priority for the City of Sydney. Please see our full statement for more information.
The City of Sydney will give away 1,000 trees to our residents on Saturday 28 March. Head down to Sydney Park Road car park to pick up your tree. We’ll be there from 10am to 2pm, or until all the trees are gone.
Please bring identification on the day that clearly shows your current residential address. Each eligible household is entitled to up to 2 free trees, before they run out. The event is popular and parking is limited, so arrive early to avoid disappointment.
There will be small, medium and large native and exotic trees to choose from. Pick a deciduous or evergreen species to best suit your property. Enjoy a sausage sizzle and chat to our staff for advice on how to plant your tree and general tree maintenance.
The City gives away trees to encourage residents to help us reach our target of increasing the city’s tree canopy to 50 per cent by 2030. This makes our city cooler, improves air quality and provides a greater habitat for birds and animals.
Trees are only available to eligible City of Sydney residents in: Alexandria, Annandale*, Barangaroo, Beaconsfield, Camperdown*, Centennial Park, Chippendale, Darlinghurst*, Darlington, Dawes Point, Elizabeth Bay, Erskineville, Eveleigh, Forest Lodge, Glebe, Haymarket, Millers Point, Moore Park, Newtown*, Paddington, Potts Point*, Pyrmont, Redfern, Rosebery*, Rushcutters Bay, St Peters, Surry Hills*, Sydney, The Rocks, Ultimo, Waterloo, Woolloomooloo and Zetland.
