TREE MANAGEMENT

Trees are an important part of our local character, attracting visitors and property buyers to the local area.  Council has three Tree Management Processes in place which are designed to protect as many trees as possible. By law, you will need to obtain a Tree Management Permit or Development Consent to remove or prune certain trees on private land.

Tree Pruning and removal

Recommended Trees – If a request to remove trees from your property has been successful, you are required to replant one or more trees anywhere within your property boundary within six weeks.  A selection of species is provided to guide residents when replanting a trees.
