Council Permit and Tree Law Information

Removing and pruning trees around Victoria is often not as simple as just getting out a chainsaw and getting started.

In most councils there are a number of different rules and regulations in place that are enforced by council. This is to protect and enhance the beautiful landscapes we are surrounded with. However, when these laws are ignored or broken it can often result in hefty fines, property restrictions and, in some cases, jail time.

Each different council has a separate set of laws, with different factors that determine what you can and cannot do with the trees on your home, business or investment property.
