LOCAL COUNCIL WEBSITE LINKS
All councils have specific rules and regulations regarding work that can or cannot be carried out on local trees, be it a complete removal or just a simple prune. Contravention of these regulations can result in a hefty fine and the specific rules differ from council to council. It is therefore advisable to find out what you can and can’t do without permission before proceeding with any tree work.
A good arborist will require sight of an approval letter before commencing work that falls under a Tree Preservation Order. We can advise you on your tree and submit an application to the Council on your behalf.
If you wish to find out more for yourself the following links will direct you to the tree work sections of various local council websites within the Greater Sydney and Central Coast area:
