Trees on Government Land
Trees are an integral part of Canberra's landscape and design. Transport Canberra and City Services manages over 700,000 trees in residential streets, major road verges, urban parks and other open space areas throughout the city. Maintenance undertaken by City Services includes pruning, planting and removal of urban trees.
Trees Within Lease Boundaries
Most trees on leased land in the ACT are protected under the Tree Protection Act 2005 (the Act). Trees covered by the Act are either Registered or Regulated Trees. Any work which may cause damage to these trees, such as tree removal, major pruning or lopping and groundwork near a regulated or registered tree requires approval
Canberra in Bloom
Canberra's urban forest comes to life in spring with a large variety of flowering trees showing off their vibrant colours. We have put together a map to guide you to some of our most spectacular flowering streetscapes. Do you know of a fantastic spring streetscape that is not already on our map? Why not send us your photos to include on the map.
Submit your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org with the location of the trees and your name. Please only submit photos of whole streetscapes, not individual trees.
Where are the most beautiful autumn leaves in Canberra?
In autumn Canberra's deciduous street trees transform our city into a tapestry of colour as their leaves change to display vivid reds, purples, oranges and yellows. The interactive autumn leaves tree map will guide you to some of our most spectacular autumnal urban locations in Canberra.
