What permits do you need for tree removals in Brisbane?

Tree removal isn’t quite as simple as just ripping up a tree and moving on. The Kiwi Tree Lopping team have extensive experience providing tree removal services for clients across Brisbane, and we’d love to offer the same to you too.

Nonetheless it’s important to understand your local council’s requirements regarding obtaining tree removal permits. While we’re more than happy to help you out in any way we can, ultimately you will need to take responsibility for ensuring the right permits are received before engaging in our tree removal services. Council regulations can often be lengthy, confusing, complex or all of the above, so it’s important to carefully read the permit requirements and contact us for help if needed.

Why do you need a permit from your local council?

Every local council throughout Brisbane and Australia has unique requirements and regulations that govern who needs a permit for tree-related services, especially tree removal. Some councils maintain rules about the types of trees that can be removed, the purpose for tree removal (such as aesthetic or due to there being a hazardous environment), and even the placement of the tree. 

Specific species of tree are protected by conservation laws and cannot be removed for any reason other than for purposes related to bushfire safety or other health/safety reasons.

We always recommend that you check in with your specific council to ensure that you know whether or not you’ll need a permit before spending time, money and energy arranging for removal services.

What if you don’t get a permit?

If you don’t obtain the requisite tree removal permit from the local Brisbane council, you can expect a fine. These fines can range in amount depending on the council and situation, but they can be quite costly. It’s not worth the risk! Plus, the Kiwi Tree Lopping team operates under the strictest of legal, industry and moral guidelines, so we won’t remove any trees from your property without the right permission.

What else needs a permit from a local council?

Kiwi Tree Lopping’s other services, such as pruning, lopping or trimming, may also require you to apply for a permit from your local council. Of course, this depends on the particulars of the job at hand and the regulations of your council.

Some factors that can relate to where an application for a permit is successful is the size of the tree, its location and even the reason for its intended removal. Councils normally review all applications to consider the many factors that relate to the specific project in question. While councils may have different processes and timelines as part of their permit-reviews, they will all communicate the granting or denial of the permit directly to you.
