City of Onkaparinga homeowners can request to Adopt a Tree for their verge and become a valued contributor to the growth of our regions urban forest. As part of this joint commitment, we grow or supply the young tree and plant it in your verge, you agree to water and care for it.
Adopt a Tree is a rolling program and you can request a tree at any time - our team then sort these requests by the relevant planting season to forward plan. Between April to the following March requests are assessed ready for trees to be planted between that May-October. For instance, if you request a tree in April 2023 and are eligible, it will be planted in winter 2024.
From April 2023 we have our usual Adopt a STREET Tree program but are also expanding this and trialing an Adopt a FRUIT Tree program.
