National Trusts of Australia register of significant trees

Who we are

The National Trusts of Australia are community-based, non-government organisations, committed to promoting and conserving Australia's indigenous, natural and historic heritage through its advocacy work and its custodianship of heritage places and objects. The National Trusts of Australia are collaborating to create a national register of significant trees, which is consistent with our mission to protect and celebrate Australia’s heritage.

Please note that whilst there are 2,500 significant tree records compiled over 30 years by the National Trusts across Australia, these records are now in the process of being updated by volunteers and loaded into the National Register. This is the first time these records have been collated nationally, and work will not be completed until mid 2014.

More about us

Nominate a tree

The Register of Significant Trees is not a static list of specimens, but constantly evolving as some trees die or require removal, and new trees are registered. New trees may be nominated by any individual or group by completing our online nomination form. New trees will be assessed against nationally agreed criteria by the Significant Trees Committees for each state or territory. Your information and observations help us improve and update the Register. Please help us by submitting your nomination so we can continue to advocate for the protection and celebration of Australia’s significant trees.
