Free trees 

Council’s Free Trees Program entitles ratepayers to receive two free tube-stock plants per financial year.

The tube-stock plants are grown by the Gympie and District Landcare and Cooloola City Farm. These plants are native to the Gympie region and are adapted to local conditions.

Planting local native species helps to increase biodiversity values in the region as well as providing food and habitat for our local fauna.

You have up until 31st May 2019 to show your notice (either paper copy or email) and collect your trees.
