Street trees are up for adoption

THE Western Downs Regional Council is bringing more trees to the streets through the Adopt a Street Tree program in 2018.

The program is open to all towns across the region and it's free to register interest.

Council spokesperson for parks, open spaces and cemeteries Councillor Carolyn Tillman said it was great to see the community get on board.

"I've heard lots of lovely comments about how all the towns are looking beautiful and adding to the welcoming feel of our communities” she said.

"Our parks and open spaces crew is doing an amazing job around all our towns and our communities are really appreciating their efforts.

"This year we're encouraging our smaller communities to get involved in the program. Wouldn't it be something special to see all our towns' streets, big and small, lined with trees.”

Registrations for this year's program will close Friday, March 16. To register interest call 1300COUNCIL or fill out the online form at www.wdrc.info/adopt-a-stre et-tree-program/.
