Do I Need Council Approval To Remove A Tree?

You may need approval from your local council before pruning or removing a tree.  Typically, you will need approval if:

  • The tree is on council land such as in a park, or is a street tree;
  • If the tree is protected or is classified as a significant landscape tree

Protected vegetation is identified by Brisbane City Council under the Natural Assets Local Law 2003 (NALL). This law protects Brisbane’s vegetation and delivers a balance between protecting the city’s environment and people, property and lifestyle. You may require a permit to manage vegetation that is protected under this law.

Our friendly team at Acclaim Tree Care and Services will be able to check with your local council for any regulations that apply to the work you intend on having done to your trees so you are 100% confident that you are adopting a responsible approach to our valuable urban vegetation.
