Understanding tree removal permits – Redland Bay

Unfortunately, it’s not always that simple when it comes to tree removal. While we’re ready and raring to go and happy to help all of our property owning clients throughout south-east Queensland, Redland Bay included, with their tree removing needs, it’s important to understand the requirements of council permits.

Local council permits

Local councils throughout Queensland and Australia have specific regulations surrounding which trees can be removed, which can’t be removed and which require a permit. Before you spend your invaluable time hiring our team of tree removal specialists, it’s important that you decide whether or not you’re going to need a council permit.

Risking a fine

If you decide not to get a permit when you actually need one and go ahead with removing a tree from your property you can be fined by your local council. That’s why it’s worth double checking before engaging our team to see what sort of permit–if any–you’re going to need.

Rules for tree removal permits in Redland Bay

If the local council’s rules seem quite complex it’s probably because they are.

There are rules, determined by each council, about which trees can and can’t be removed. These regulations can be quite lengthy and time consuming to read, let alone understand.

Why do you need a permit?

There could be a whole variety of reasons why a permit may be necessary for removing a tree. It might be because the particular species of tree in question has been classified as protected. In this instance the tree cannot be removed at all with the significant exception of removal by those living in a bushfire area.

Of course, classified species is just one of the many reasons why a local council may require you to apply for a permit.

Do you need a permit for anything else?

If you’re looking to get your trees pruned or lopped, rather than completely removed, you may need to get a permit in any case–though this depends on your particular council.

When it comes to tree-related services, the size of the tree and its location are also factors that may determine whether or not a council requires (and grants) a permit for work to be done. Normally, the council will review permit applications and take all of the different factors into consideration before either granting or denying that permit.
