Sutherland Shire Tree Removal & Pruning Council Info

Sutherland Shire tree removal & pruning information can be found below. It is important you check all rules before having any tree work done on or around your property as you (the owner) are responsible for your trees. Any illegal tree works carried out on your property can result in you (the owner) being heavily fined. Sutherland Shire Council require permission for most tree removals in Sutherland Shire, however council will provide approval to remove a tree within 3 metres of a dwelling subject to an application.

Is your property in the 10/50 Tree & Vegetation Fire Zone? This can make you exempt from council. Read our post on the 10/50 Tree removal

Sutherland Shire Council allow any tree to be pruned by 10% or less once a year max. However all pruning needs to be carried out to the Australian Standard 4373 – 2007 pruning of amenity trees. What this basically means is you should seek a “professional” Arborist to prune the tree in a way to cause less harm to the tree.

How to find a professional Sydney Arborist? 3 tips below!

1– Does your tree removal company have a website, Facebook page or an online presence? Im not saying this is a must have, but its a good way to know the company is legit and have a read of their credentials

2– Ask for copies of their insurance. Most professional tree companies will carry 10-20 Million Public liability insurance. Ask them to email you a copy with their quote

3– Are they qualified Arborists? Now i do know some very talented professional people in the industry who are great at their job and have no “Qualifications” but a minimum of a cert 3 in Aboriculture is something you could expect your Tree professional to have. Level 5 even better (however sometimes i feel these certificates are being found in cereal boxes……..)
