City Launches 2020 Commemorative Tree Planting Program

01 May 2020 1:00 PM

The City of Kalamunda has opened applications for the 2020 Commemorative Tree Planting to celebrate the community’s youngest residents.

City Mayor Margaret Thomas said more than 600 trees had been planted in nominated City parks and reserves by local families to celebrate the birth of their babies since the program’s start in 2011.

“Welcoming a new baby into the family is such a special time,” Cr Thomas said.

“Planting a tree for your child is a wonderful way to celebrate their life - as they grow, so does their tree!”

City residents who have had a baby between May 2019 and April 2020 can now register for the City’s 2020 Commemorative Tree Planting.

This year, due to current COVID-19 safeguards, the City is providing a personalised delivery service of the tree and certificate to your home with plaque installation at a local park by the City, in lieu of a community planting event.

Applications close 5pm Friday 29 May 2020.
Online applications can be submitted via engage.kalamunda.wa.gov.au.

For more information or to request a hard copy application form call (08) 9257 9999 or email commemorativetrees@kalamunda.wa.gov.au.
