Tree planting makes a big contribution to sustaining and expanding Newcastle's urban forest. Trees help keep our city cool, absorb and store carbon, provide food and shelter for wildlife, and keep our air and water clean. Trees also make us feel great when we're walking past them and make our city look beautiful.
Each year we plant around 1200 street and park trees through our Living Streets program. We prioritise areas most in need as well as recently completed stormwater, road and footpath repairs and construction. Tree planting is also part of our large infrastructure projects. In Spring 2021 and Autumn 2022 we're prioritising street tree planting in Lambton and Elermore Vale.
Newcastle Tree Map
Our Tree Map shows all of the street and park trees that are currently part of Newcastle’s urban forest. You can search the map by entering a suburb, street address, park name, or tree asset ID. Click on the coloured dots to learn the species, age and asset ID of each tree. You can even send an email to your favourite tree to tell it how much you appreciate it!
Green dots for established trees that are older than 6 years, yellow dots for new street trees up to 6 years old, and blue dots for vacancies where new street trees could be planted.
