Tree Management

Council is currently experiencing a higher volume than normal of tree applications and service requests for tree inspections. 

Please remain patient while our team works hard to process these applications, and allow approximately 28 days for your application to be processed. 

Trees and vegetation play a vital role in the health, social framework and economic sustainability of our area. Council is committed to the protection of trees and bushland in the Armidale region, however, the maintenance and management of trees may be required for a number of reasons, such as:

  • A tree has become a fire or storm hazard.
  • A tree has experienced unforeseen growth.
  • A neighbour has raised concerns about a tree on your property.

The following pages outline everything you need to know about pruning, removing or planting a tree, and the legislation in place regarding tree management.
