Your tree may be protected under council legislation. Before we get our equipment out, we have to be sure we’re not violating any laws. It’s up to you, the property owner, to obtain any required council clearances. It usually takes one simple phone call to your local council. However, if the tree is protected, you’ll need to apply for clearance. We would do this for you, but unfortunately we aren’t allowed to – it has to be you. If you need help understanding how to go through this process, we’ll be glad to help.
