Applying for a tree removal permit in Whitehorse council
Whitehorse council is divided into nine Significant Landscape (SLO) areas which have specific regulations for protected trees.
SLO 1-8 specify a protected tree as any which:
- Have a single trunk circumference of 50 centimetres or more
- Measure 1 metre above ground level
SLO 9 specifies a protected tree as any which:
- Is more than 5 metres in height
- Has a single trunk circumference of 1 metre or more, at the height of 1 metre above ground
If you are looking to remove a tree within any of the Whitehorse council SLO areas, the council recommends hiring a professional arborist service, like Trav's Tree Services.
We can perform the job safely and efficiently, to the specifications of the tree removal permit. By hiring a professional to perform the service, you'll avoid any unnecessary fines.
