Tree Removal Permit in Yarra Council

If you violate Yarra Council regulations on tree removing or pruning, it can result in heavy penalties. Make sure you have Tree Removal Permit from Yarra Council before you proceed with any tree works.

You will require a permit to remove a tree that is:

  • Listed on the Significant Tree Register
  • Single trunked with a trunk diameter of 0.4m or greater measured at 1.5m above the ground
  • Multi-trunked with a combined trunk diameter of 0.4m or greater measured at 1.5m above the ground
