Tree Work Permits
Skyline Tree Care can advise on any council approval required for tree removals and pruning and help you with council applications.
You usually need a permit to remove a tree from your property. Exemptions apply if:
- The 10/50 rule applies. If you live in a designated bushfire-prone area, you can clear any trees on your property within 10 metres of a home without seeking council approval and any underlying vegetation (excluding trees) within 50 metres of a home. Find out if you are in a 10/50 vegetation clearing entitlement area by using the NSW Rural Fire Service10/50 Vegetation Clearing Scheme Tool.
