The trees on nature strips are in public places and belong to Council no matter who planted them.
An inspection of all streets is conducted twice per year - in August to prepare for the wet season and in April after the wet season. Trees that are unsafe / main trunk broken or tree roots moving will be removed. Branches require pruning if overhanging road or footpath. A clearance of 2.1 m in height and 1 metre from road or path is required.
Council can prune and trim trees on request after an inspection has been undertaken.
