Tree preservation is a Local Government issue and Council areas have strict Tree Preservation Orders (TPOs) in place.
Most councils now provide information on their website about applying for tree work and what exemptions apply. Many now make their application forms for tree permits downloadable as pdf files.
To check on your relevant Council's Regulations follow the links provided below. Abbott Trees can organise an Arborist's report to support your application if necessary.
