Northern Beaches tree trimming works involve all types of tree pruning such as tree crown raising and crown shaping to provide ground and building clearances; tree crown reduction in special cases to reduce the overall size of the tree canopy; tree crown thinning to provide addition light through the canopy; remedial tree pruning to remove defected branches and dead wood removal also for tree safety reasons.

Our North Shore Sydney arborists are highly experienced and professional, and provide tree removal services for a number of very prestigious establishments in North Sydney. We work very closely with Sydney Northern Beaches Council to ensure the correct council approvals as always obtained for our clients. As part of the tree removal process we also provide Sydney Northern Beaches stump grinding services to ensure that replanting of new trees can occur.

– Emergency Storm Damage – Throughout the summer months of the year there are numerous severe weather events across the Sydney North Shore involving fallen trees and dangerously damaged trees.

Do I need Sydney Northern Beaches council permission to remove my tree ?

The following is a summary of the Northern Beaches Council Tree Preservation Policy to identify works that can be done without council approval and exempt tree species. This policy is now covered by the State Environmental Planning Policy (Vegetation in Non-Rural Areas) 2017 (Vegetation SEPP) and the Northern Beaches Council DCP. This overview is only a guide. Please reference the complete Northern Beaches Tree Removal and Pruning Policy for more detailed information. Care should also be taken to check the property zoning and that the tree is not protected for Ecological or Heritage reasons (i.e Heritage conservation zones and Endangered Species or Habitats), which can also supersede the 10/50 Bushfire clearances laws.

Northern Beaches Council Tree Management policy allows for the following tree removal or tree pruning works WITHOUT council permission. For all arborist works outside of this scope, council approval in writing is required, unless the works fall under the 10/50 bush fire clearance legislation.

  • Any tree less than 5m in height.
  • Tree removal under the 10/50 Legislation for hazard reduction in Bush Fire prone areas.
  • Removal of a Tree where the base of the trunk is within 2m of an existing approved building (excluding decks, pergolas, sheds, patios etc)
  • Dead trees (unless habitat) and branches – technical photographic evidence
  • Tree removal where the tree is a ‘high risk’ and poses imminent danger to life or property – needs to be certified in a written report from an AQF Level 5 Arborist. Includes fallen or partially fallen storm damaged trees.
  • Removal of any tree listed as a priority weed – NSW Bio Security Act 2015.
  • Pruning or removal of hedges (group of 2+ trees planted to form a hedge)
  • Tree Pruning up to 10% of the canopy for clearances per annum (according to AS 4373-2007).
  • Any tree species listed as an Exempt species under Northern Beaches Council Tree Preservation Order (see table below). Does not apply if Heritage item or within a Heritage area.
