Best trees to plant

Before you plant near powerlines, take a look at our recommendations for the best vegetation to plant in your area.

We recommend planting indigenous plants – ones that are naturally found in your area. These plants are ideal as they: 

  • have adapted to the soils and climate 
  • have reasonably predictable growth rates
  • need less maintenance, like pruning and fertilising
  • help prevent soil degradation
  • attract native birds, animals, and plants
  • help maintain the local ecosystem.
