Tree maintenance

Want to report a tree issue? Before reporting an issue please follow the link to the Tree Management information found on the City's website as your questions may have already been answered.

Please note that if a neighbour’s tree is affecting your property it is best to speak to the property owner directly. This is a civil matter in which the Council is unable to intervene. If an agreement is not able to be reached consideration should be given to mediation or it may be appropriate to lodge an application to be heard in the Land and Environment Court. See the ‘Tree Management’ link above for further information.
