Do I Need A Permit To Remove A Tree ?

Every council has different regulations for removing trees on private property that are based on type of tree, size & diameter of tree and more. It is generally easy to obtain tree removal permits, particularly if the tree falls within 5 feet of your property or poses a public health hazard as large, dead or dying trees often do. Tree removal on public property always requires a permit. The larger the tree, the harder they are to obtain in general.
