City of Swan to host Perth’s largest plant giveaway

Published on: Thursday, March 02, 2023

The City of Swan is running its biggest ever giveaway of 45,000 free trees and plants this year, and all residents are eligible to apply.

For the past 15 years, the City of Swan has run its popular Rural Revegetation Program, where City residents living on properties 4,000 square metres or larger in size were eligible to claim a selection of free plants.

City of Swan Mayor David Lucas said this year, for the first time, the program was open to everyone in the City of Swan.

“This is one of, if not the biggest giveaway of free trees and plants by a local government in Perth,” he said.

“We will have a whopping 45,000 trees and plants available.

“We’re very proud to be partnering with local Hazelmere nursery Trillion Trees to deliver this wonderful initiative.

“Planting more local native species in our gardens provides many benefits, including increasing our urban forest, creating shade, reducing heat, improving air quality, combating salinity and soil erosion, and offering habitat and food for local wildlife.”

The giveaway will help grow the City’s tree canopy and protect the local biodiversity for future generations.

City residents are invited to apply before the application period closes on March 31, 2023.
