Ipswich City Council
Free Plant Program
Ipswich City Council provides a Free Plant Program each financial year to assist residents to develop a greener, healthier lifestyle.
Over 500,000 trees have been distributed to the local community in the last five years, with this figure continually rising.
Plants are proudly propagated and grown in Ipswich City Council's production nursery. Plant species are chosen and propagated to suit local climate and soil conditions.
As an Ipswich resident you are entitled to free plants every financial year under the Council's Free Plant Program. The following entitlements are available upon presentation of proof of residency:
Note: Please see the below table for the documents that must be presented.
Note: Owner occupiers of newly built homes (under 12 months old) will be entitled to a one-off allocation of 25 plants in addition to their annual allocation. Please see the below table for the documents that must be provided.
The following documents must be presented to receive the above plant entitlements:
Note: A Drivers Licence will not be accepted by itself.
Note: A maximum of 200 trees per annum may be allocated.
For these groups to be eligible to receive the free plant allocation an application form and plan must be completed. They can then be sent to Council at:

NOTE: Please be aware that when collecting plants from Goodna Nursery the resident will only by supplied with a maximum 8 plants unless previous arrangements have been made with nursery staff. (This is because there is currently no computer facilities available at this site to check property sizes or other various allocation entitlements as well as the limited number of plants that can be stored on site.)
You may not be aware but the Ipswich City Council Nurseries also allow Ipswich residents to purchase plants at any time as long as proof of current residential location is confirmed at time of purchase (eg Drivers Licence). Customers from outside the city of Ipswich cannot purchase plants from the Council nursery. Plants can be purchased from the Queens Park Nursery only.
