Snowy Monaro Regional Council is committed to providing streetscapes, parks and open spaces that provide visual amenity to towns and villages within the council. The climate of the area allows for the seasonal displays to be showcased by selective tree planting and the changing streetscapes form an important part of our local character. Trees play a vital role in our town and village environments as they attract visitors, increase property values and protect us from the sun. The maintenance of trees and shrubs on Council controlled property is carried out by Council staff.
