A selection of trees and shrubs, including natives are available every year through our Free Tree Program.
The species offered vary throughout the year and depend on availability. Generally, the plants range in size from tube stock to 200-millimetre pots.
Residents – 2024 collection dates
The program is open between January and June each year, and trees will be available for collection from the locations around the Gold Coast.
Residents can collect 3 free trees* per household. If you will be collecting trees for more than one property, you will need to provide a current rates notice for each property.
All free trees are to be planted on your property, not on Council-controlled land.
