Lopping or removing a tree on your property

Lopping or removing trees on Private Property

Native vegetation removal, which includes lopping and or destroying, is regulated by State legislation and the Strathbogie Shire Planning Scheme.

Council recognises some native vegetation removals are unavoidable, however you may need either a planning permit and/or Council's advice regarding other consents and permit exemptions before removing native vegetation (includes trees, shrubs, herbs and grasses).

Failure to obtain appropriate permits and or consents could lead to prosecution and enforcement action.

Before you lop, remove or destroy any native vegetation, we strongly recommend you contact us to find out whether a planning permit, other consent or exemption applies to your situation.

Some 95 per cent of unlawful native vegetation removals are brought to our attention by everday residents of the Shire of Strathbogie, so it pays to speak to Council first.

Our Planning Department is only a phone call away on 1800 065 993 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  .

Our staff will advise you to what extent these and other exemptions relate to your land and how best to apply the requirements including the "minimise and avoid" principles.
