Free trees

Each year council distributes free trees to ratepayers to help beautify the region.

Ratepayers can collect two free tube stock plants from the nursery at council's Caloundra depot located on Industrial Avenue. Ratepayers are invited to collect their trees with rates notice to be sighted as per the free tree policy.


  • trees can only be collected on Wednesdays between 1.00pm and 3.00pm (nursery open time)
  • 2 plants can be collected every 6 months with a current Sunshine Coast Council rates notice
  • council provides a selection of trees, either small medium or large. Council does not stock any shrubs or ground covers.

Free trees are also distributed via a free tree day, which councillors organise in their respective divisions.
