Rural Tree Scheme

Orders are now open for Council’s Rural Tree Scheme. All rural ratepayers in the Edward River local government area are eligible to purchase indigenous plants at a subsidised rate through this scheme.

Who is eligible?

Ratepayers whose properties are larger than five (5) hectares are eligible to purchase subsidised plants through Council’s Rural Tree Scheme.

The number of plants is capped at 50 tube seedlings per rate notice, three rate notices per owner. 

What are my responsibilities?

By participating in the Rural Tree Scheme, you agree to plant and tend to the seedlings you receive. You are expected to prepare your land properly before planting, including weed control, and provide ongoing maintenance.

What plant species can I purchase?
