Under the Ryde Local Environment Plan 2010 a tree with a height greater than 5m or with a trunk circumference at 1.4m of more than 450mm requires council approval for pruning or removal. Consent is also required if a tree is deemed to be part of an important wildlife habitat, refuge or corridor. An arborist report must accompany any claim on trees that are dangerous or part of the Significant Tree Register.
