Unauthorised tree work

Posted Tuesday 28 June 2016

Mosman Council has recently had an influx of unauthorised tree work carried out by contractors resulting in fines and prosecutions through the courts.

Some residents have been incorrectly advised by these companies that council permission is not required on protected trees. However, in most cases council consent is required before conducting tree work in Mosman.

Council urges residents to review the Trees page on the website prior to commencing tree work and to employ reputable arborists with proof of qualifications and current insurances.
