Hornsby Shire Council

If you are in Hornsby Council area and require a tree or trees removed due to property damage, danger, allergy, dying or diseased trees, we can help you.

We can also assist with tree pruning under certain conditions, including storm damage, overhanging dwellings, hazardous vision obstruction.

The State Environmental Planning Policy (Vegetation in Non-Rural Area’s) 2017 under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act, 1979 prescribes that tree and vegetation works are to be processed using a permit system administered by Council through its Development Control Plan. This means an application form must be submitted for a permit to prune or remove trees protected by Council’s Tree Preservation Measures Part1B.6.

An application form must be submitted for a permit to prune or remove trees protected under Council’s tree preservation measures, either through applying online, in person or sending via mail.
