Despite the lockdown restrictions in place, your bins will still be collected, and we're still able to answer your calls. Stay safe, stay home and if you need to go out for any of the 5 reasons, remember your mask.
We have many individual trees, groups of trees and areas of vegetation that have special significance. They include native and exotic plants that are of habitat value, are rare or unique to our area, are outstanding examples of their species or of cultural or historical significance.
We register vegetation deemed significant, and they become protected by Planning Scheme ES04.
You can nominate vegetation on public or private land for inclusion on the register. Nominations are reviewed by an arborist twice a year. We will contact you to let you know the outcome.
To be eligible, the tree or area must meet 1 or more criteria:
Nominate a tree(PDF, 162KB)
Read the current register(PDF, 175KB).
If you have significant vegetation on your property, you may need a planning permit to carry out works on or near it.
