Tree Removal

The requirements for the removal of trees and native vegetation has recently gone through a suite of Land Management and Biodiversity Conservation (LMBC) reforms by the NSW Government that commenced in 2017. The new legislation details what is required to be considered when someone is seeking the removal of a single tree, through to clearing areas of native vegetation. 

Approval (Form 4 - Application to remove or prune a tree) may be required to remove a tree if you own a property that is a heritage item or within a heritage conservation area. If you consider the tree is dead, dying or dangerous please complete Form 16 - Dead, dying or dangerous tree.

Given the recent changes in relation to the removal of trees and the clearing of native vegetation, please contact Council’s Strategic Planning Section in the first instance to identify whether you require a permit to remove a tree or clear native vegetation.
