New State Government rules to protect tree canopy


New planning regulations have been introduced by the State Government to protect a greater number of trees.

Taking immediate effect, the new regulations will protect trees with a smaller trunk circumference.

The trunk size for regulated trees has been reduced from two meters to one metre, and the trunk size for significant trees will go from three metres to two metres.

Exemptions for trees based on distance from homes and pools have also been reduced.

The regulations have also introduced new pruning limits, allowing 30 percent of the tree’s canopy to be removed only every five years.
