Most of the time you will also need to have Council Permission to remove a tree from your property.

Some examples of situations where the council will give permission to remove a tree are as follows:

  • It is likely to cause substantial property damage to houses or buildings

  • There is substantial evidence that it is structurally unstable and there is a high degree of hazard (arborist report and testing may be required for significant trees)

  • It is causing substantial and continuing structural damage to a dwelling or structure (structural engineering assessment may be required)

  • If it is in poor and declining health (with a short life expectancy) and there are no options to mitigate the decline in health


After having a tree removed from your property there will always be a stump left in the ground. This is also true if you have a rotten or diseased tree blow over in strong winds or other circumstances. Anyone who tried to remove a stump before knows this is a very difficult task as digging it out is nearly impossible, thanks to an established tree root system and burning is not always possible. Our arborist’s use a Stump Grinding machine for this task which is basically a large grinding flywheel connected to a powerful machine engine.
