Tree cutting service

Permits

Kiwi Tree Lopping provides a range of tree removal services to property owners in south-east Queensland. However, before you hire one of our professional tree felling services, you need to decide whether you need a council permit. If you do need a permit and don’t get one, you can be fined by the local council.

Complex rules

The rules for what trees you can and can’t remove are different for each council and the regulations can be quite time consuming to read. Some species of trees may be classified as protected, so you can’t remove them at all, unless you live in a bushfire area. Some councils also require permits to prune specific trees, not just for removal, and the size of the tree is also taken into consideration.
