Jim’s tree removal permit


Do you want to remove a tree from your property? You should be aware that you will need a permit to do so. The permit will have to come from your local council and is a requirement for tree removals from any private residences and commercial properties. Some trees, however, are exempted from the permit process.

That may sound like a lot of fuss and red tape to go through, but Jim’s Trees is able to make this process easier for you.

You may or may not need a permit for tree removal in your area; so you’ll want to check with your local council to see what tier guidelines are on the subject.

Some trees are protected, and the council will not permit them to be removed. But in some fire prone areas, trees within a certain distance of your home can be removed without the need for a permit.


Jim’s Trees can assist you in acquiring the permits you need. You should know that even pruning some trees in certain areas may require a permit. Our arborists can provide those pruning services for you, as well as a host of other expert tree care services.

We always adhere to the local laws and regulations to ensure that the work is done properly.

The process for getting a permit begins by contacting the local council office. They will let you know if you need a permit for the work you want done. This will be followed by a tree measuring to determine if the tree can be removed without the need for a permit.

If you do need a permit for the job, our experts can help. We provide free quotes and consultations to everyone. We can also advise you as to whether we believe you need a permit or not. And when you do need one, we will walk you through it. We can even prepare the necessary paperwork for you.
