Verges and Street Trees

Helping to control recognised environmental weeds is an important part of caring for our environment.

Verge Herbicide and Planting Program

We provide free verge herbicide (glyphosate biactive) to assist with managing weeds on residential verges. If you're not keen on herbicides, you can contact us for advice on alternative methods of weed control.

In partnership with Landcare SJ, we also provide a free verge plant program to residents each year. Plants are native species, and stocks are limited so it's best to get your application in early. Contact Landcare SJ.

Street Tree Program

Street trees make such a difference to our community. From lowering air temperatures around our homes to reducing noise and storm-water runoff, they also add to the character of our unique area. Residents are eligible to have a street tree supplied and planted at their property.

If you would like a street tree, please email the Shire at or call on 9526 1111. We will need to know your name, contact number and address so our Operations crew can contact you to discuss available tree types and location.

Keeping It Local

We encourage the use of plants native to the Swan Coastal Plain wherever possible. These plants are hardy, waterwise, and in some instances even fire-resistant.
