Redland Bay is a beautiful part of the coastline with a mix of ecosystems that are important to our wildlife. These include small sandy beaches, mangroves, salt marshes and bushland, but also a large number of old veteran trees that are protected by the council (some of these trees are more than 50 years old). These veteran trees provide habitats for possums, reptiles, amphibians and koalas, and keep them safe from predators. Hollows in these trees are vital for many of our arboreal animals that use them as homes and for breeding.
This is why the Redland Bay Council is very protective of these old trees and if you want to remove any of the trees on your property you will likely need their permission to do so. However, permission isn’t required for tree trimming in Redland Bay. This means that we can trim your trees to make them safer, more balanced and to prevent them from encroaching on your power lines, telephone cables and solar panels or from reducing the sunlight entering your home.
