Plants for Residents

Plants to Residents provides free plants to residents of the City of Kalamunda to support the establishment of natural habitat in backyards and verges across the City and improve our urban canopy.

All plants are tube stock or smaller. The program aims to promote the re-vegetation of residential and rural properties with local native trees, shrubs and ground-covers. Planting not only improves landscape quality but also provides an array of environmental benefits such as shade, carbon sequestration and shelter for birds, reptiles and small mammals.

Residents MUST bring:

  • photo ID (driver’s license/ passport); or
  • current Rates Notice or utility bill (to verify address); and
  • a container for carrying plants.
Species availability is subject to change. Some species may not be available on the day.

Each year there are two opportunities for residents to collect free plants from the City. Residents are entitled to come to one event and collect their plants.
