Council consent is required to prune a tree by more than 10% of its canopy or to remove a tree greater than 5m in height, 3m in canopy or with a trunk width of 150mm or more. Soil level substantially altered within 3m of such a tree also needs council approval. Council consent is not required if a tree is dead, a declared noxious weed or one that is grown for its fruit.
