How does Hornsby Council’s Tree Preservation Order affect you?
From 6 September 2011, the rules for tree preservation in Hornsby Shire Council changed. In summary, the changes are:

  • Trees protected by the new Tree Preservation Order are trees that are indigenous to Hornsby Shire.
  • Trees growing within designated Heritage Conservation Areas (as noted in the Hornsby Shire Heritage Development Control Plan) or trees that are listed as heritage items within the Plan.
  • Trees exempt from protection under the new Tree Preservation Order are trees that are not indigenous and not growing within a designated Heritage Conservation Area, all noxious weeds and trees less than three metres in height.

Why preserve trees?

Trees are an important part of the character of an area, attracting people and adding value to your property. Trees and plants in general play an essential role in maintaining the environmental health of a region by protecting soil and water supplies, storing carbon and providing habitat for wildlife.
