A Tree Pruning and Removal Permit from council is required to remove or prune any cycad or mangrove, irrespective of size and any tree that exceeds 4m in height or with a trunk circumference over 500mm at any point. Exemptions may apply if a tree is deemed a risk to human life or property or is proven to be dead or dying.
General Notes on Councils:
The pruning or removal of any trees on public land, parks, bushland or Heritage Items need special permission from ALL councils.
The Noxious Weeds Act 1993 lists trees not requiring permission to remove.
