Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to know if I want to plant new trees on my site?

When choosing trees for your site, you'll want to make sure the trees are:

  • Suited to the climate, soil type, and drainage conditions
  • Resistant to pests in the area (such as Psyllids, which attack Red River Gums)
  • Easy to maintain and prune
  • The right size and shape for your site

If you don't know how to get started, we can visit your site in Kew and give you comprehensive planting advice. Contact us today.

Can I cut my tree down myself?

You can, but you shouldn't. You don't have the right kind of insurance cover, or the knowledge, to safely fell a tree. If you lop a tree in your backyard, and it falls on your neighbour's house, or damages public property outside the boundary line of your site, you'll be liable to pay damages.

Contact us, instead. We have full insurance and public liability cover of up to $20 million, so if anything should go wrong, you and your property are protected.

How do I know if I need a permit to carry out works on my tree?

As part of Boroondara council, Kew is split into Significant Landscape Overlay (SLO) and Vegetation Landscape Overlay (VLO) areas. First, you'll need to find out if the site of your tree falls under one of these. Then, you'll need to work out if your tree is classified as 'protected' or 'significant'. To find out more, head to our tree removal permit page for Boroondara council.

Which trees are protected in Kew?

Canopy trees (with a circumference of 110 cm or more, and a height of 150 cm above ground level) and trees which have a cultural or historical significance are protected. In Kew, this includes River Red Gums and Studley Park Gums.
