Tree removals

We make every attempt to retain trees in the streets and parklands for as long as possible and in the best possible condition.  

Many residents request the removal of a tree because it sheds berries, nuts, leaves or other material. While we acknowledge that trees will shed, this is seen as a natural occurrence. As such we cannot remove a tree on this basis.

When can I request a tree removal?

A request can be made when a tree is:

  • dead or in severe decline
  • a risk to the community that cannot be mitigated through management techniques 
  • identified as part of an asset renewal program.

Trees will only be removed in accordance with relevant guidelines and procedures.

We will engage with the community on street and park tree removal decisions in accordance with the community engagement framework.
