School Tree Safety

Vic Gov Safe Tree Program

School Tree Safety - Safe Tree Program

Keeping children and staff safe at schools is imperative. It’s also important that schools feel lush and have a nice aesthetic feel with plenty of vegetation. It’s strictly the responsibility of the school to ensure the environment is safe from any dangerous trees or limbs. 

The Victorian Government have created a grant called the ‘Safe Tree Program’, where schools can apply for help to assess, manage and remove any dangerous trees.

If trees need to be removed, the government will provide funding for native trees as the replacement.

Once the school applies for the grant, they can manage the project or the Victorian School Building Authority can. That’s where we come in. We can apply for this grant for you and get the right amount of paperwork filled out and carry out all of the works. 

All of the works is completed funded by the governmet. We just get the job done for you.
