Tree Pruning and Shaping
Council permission and best practice
Council will allow pruning without a permit, as outlined on the Wingecarribee Shire Council website. Our AQF Level 3 Arborist can provide a professional opinion supporting the pruning in writing for Council if required.
Please note that tree topping (cutting away part or all of a tree’s foliage crown) or tree lopping (cutting between branch unions or at internodes with the last cut leaving a stub) have long been considered unacceptable practices by national tree associations and qualified arborists and are also prohibited by Council.
