Tree Work Permission Guidelines

Property owners are responsible for all trees and vegetation growing within their property and the property owner or, an appointed strata management company must therefore ensure their land is free from weeds and immediate hazards at all times. Many trees, even on private property however are ‘protected ‘and council permits must be obtained before tree work can be carried out.

Guidelines and regulations regarding permitted tree work and tree removal can differ from one council to another so, whenever you are considering doing any work to the trees within your property it is always best to check what regulations apply by visiting your local Councils tree permission guidelines page as listed below for specific regulation guidelines:
