Tree Management Application Form

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.

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.
