Council Regulations

Understanding Council’s Regulations

Almost all trees require council approval and it is imperative that your council’s regulations are looked at and that you understand them. Significant fines can be imposed if approvals have not been received. We have provided easy links to your council to see if there are any exemptions for the tree work that you are planning on undertaking. For exempt works you can undertake your tree work at a time that suits yourself.

Many of the council web sites can be confusing or unclear. Contact Bradshaw Tree Services as we have a complete understanding of all council’s regulations and often know the officers that undertake the inspections. For those difficult and contentious trees we may be able to help in getting an approval.
