Register your tree

We want to work with everyone across Sydney in greening our city.

We can't do it alone so join us and your community in planting a tree, big or small, and register today to make it count.

Make your home and local area greener

You can make your home and local area a greener, cooler, more beautiful place to live. It’s as easy as planting greenery in your garden or on your balcony.

Just a few saplings and small trees will make your home cooler and more private, with flowers and fruit to enjoy. Greenery will also improve your air and water quality.

Find a space or pot to plant a fruit or shade tree to help make your immediate space greener and more appealing.

Map of trees registered

We've developed a map that identifies the total number of trees planted and registered across Greater Sydney suburbs under the Greening our City Premier’s Priority.

Registrations include trees planted through initiatives such as:

  • Planet Ark’s National Tree Day
  • Greening our City and Five Million Trees Grant Programs
  • Council tree planting programs
  • Plantings on NSW-Government owned land (e.g. Western Sydney Parklands)
  • Community members planting trees on their land

The map shows the whole-of-community contribution to expanding tree canopy across Greater Sydney and will be updated in line with the tally that is tracking our progress to planting one million trees by 2022.
