Nominations will go to our Investigations Unit and our arborist will inspect the tree on receipt of an application to determine if it has the characteristics of a significant tree.
If the inspection identifies the tree is potentially significant, a consulting arborist will be engaged at Council’s cost to conduct an assessment.
If the consulting arborist’s report concludes that the tree is significant, a report will be prepared for Council recommending listing the tree on the register by resolution at a Council Meeting.
We will contact you via email if any additional details are required and once an outcome has been confirmed.
What if I don’t agree with the outcome of my nomination?
Applicants who are not satisfied with the outcome of a nomination assessment can have the decision appealed to Council for consideration at a Council meeting.
