As a property owner, you may have many reasons to want to cut down a tree. But regardless of your reasons, the New South Wales government requires that you first apply for your permit for certain trees. To be able to remove a tree in Australia, you need a business license. Make sure that whoever is doing the tree removal as a professional for you has a business license.
This is the best way to know that you have involved a professional on duty. In addition to being fined for the illegal felling and destruction of trees, the Act also allows the Court to order the offending party to plant and maintain new trees to maturity, and to demonstrate to the Court that it has established safety measures to ensure that newly planted trees grow to maturity. TPOs generally prohibit the removal or destruction of trees that are 5 meters tall or more, unless the Council has granted prior approval or an arborist has formally classified the tree as an exempt species (this means that a noxious weed must be declared). Apart from this, most tree extractions and pruning can be done with a permit issued by your local council.
Seven of the trees were cut down almost to ground level and 6 had their branches cut off, and 3 of the trees eventually died. Tree owners who aren't sure about the tree laws in their area should consult local council planning authorities or talk to a qualified arborist for more information. However, municipal authorities can grant a permit for the felling of trees in situations where there is evidence that the tree caused property damage. Although there are exempt trees, you may get into trouble if you're not sure which species of tree you want to eliminate.
They can help you get a municipal permit to remove trees because a big part of an arborist's job is to remove dead or unhealthy trees. We recommend that you consult your council's rules for tree removal to determine if you need a permit to remove a tree on your property and the type of permit you need. The New South Wales local council protects the region's trees through the logging laws set out in the state's Local Environmental Plan (LEP) and the Tree Preservation Orders (TPO). Each council in the Greater Sydney region has its own Tree Management Control and Development Plan (DCP) that sets out the rules on tree pruning and removal.
In addition, the board may also ask you to give them compelling reasons why you should remove the tree. Tree removal experts have the skills, knowledge and experience to finish the job safely and efficiently. The owner of Arbor Tree Solutions, Bilal Youssef, who undertook the work, said he was “completely surprised” that the Council decided to go after Ms. Spencer and says the Council's claim that all the trees were healthy is “rubbish”.
Anyone intending to cut any of these items must obtain permission from the local council after providing a valid reason why they want to remove the tree. Ben learned the art of felling trees from his father as a child and now runs the family business Tree Lopping Townsville Services.
