Tree Management and Removal

View from Warragamba Lookout

Trees on Private Property

Trees within the boundaries of a private property may require Council approval to be pruned or removed, depending on the circumstances.

Trees on Neighbouring Properties

If you are concerned about a tree on a neighbouring property, the best way to sort the issue out is to discuss it with your neighbour. Your neighbour may not be aware that there is an issue.

Trees on Public Land

If a tree or shrub is on the footpath, the road side outside a property boundary or in a park or reserve then it is on Council land. As a result, planting, pruning or removal of trees or shrubs on Council land requires written consent from Council.

Clearing of Bushland

The clearing of native vegetation within Wollondilly requires consent unless it meets an exemption.
