Tree management for bushfire protection

There has been a recent amendment to the Vegetation Clearing Code of Practice (10/50) prepared by the NSW Rural Fire Service. The Code permits the removal of trees within bushfire prone land for the purpose of asset protection.

There is no bushfire prone land within the Woollahra LGA. The Code cannot be applied for the purpose of removing trees within Woollahra.

You can view your property via the online assessment tool provided by the NSW Rural Fire Service at the following link:

Any proposed tree removal needs to be administered through a Tree Preservation Order or Development Application.
