Exceptional Tree Register

Exceptional Tree Register

Do you wonder what ever happened to the Exceptional Tree Register?

Great idea that got started, however its been closed since June 2014. We have a request into council to get some info on the register, when it will be open again, what trees are on it, how the public responded to it initially and how it will continue.

Here’s a beauty behind homes in Queen Street Ballarat East.


Please forward all nominations to


In person: The Phoenix, 25 Armstrong St Sth, Ballarat

Mail: City of Ballarat, Exceptional Tree Register, PO Box 655, Ballarat 3353.

    Sue can you please contact David and follow up. Thats crazy.

  2. Pam Strange says:

    I nominated a tree of important historical value, but did not receive a confirmation from Council. I’ve very concerned a developer may cut it down, as he alluded to this in a conversion with me. I’ve tried contacting David Grant but he did not reply.

    I nominated several trees for the registry – a couple of days after I received a confirmation letter from Council, one of them was cut down!
