There are a few reasons you may need a tree inspection report and the main ones are you are hoping to have a dangerous tree removed or you have a development application lodged with council and you need the accompanying documentation. Councils require arborist reports to prove the condition of a tree before giving approval to have it modified or removed.
Inline with the environmental protection act, local councils need to have confirmation that tree’s are in bad repair before giving approval to remove a tree. In australia, just about all natives trees and vegetation are protected and hence require the evidence of an arborist tree inspection report. Most introducted species can be removed without council approval. If you are having trouble identifying a tree species or need help with a tree removal application, you can give us a call and we will be glad to assist.
