Trees are beneficial to use in many ways. However, there may be some situations that a tree becomes dangerous that it warrants its removal. There are procedures to follow before you can cut down a tree.
What to do first
To determine if the tree brings more risks than benefits, consult the committee regulations first and see if they will allow you. In many cases, you will need to get a council approval before you can chop down any tree as most states and territories want to stay green.
You will also need to do some research for most councils make their decision based on the size of the tree, location and species. Every council also has their own set rules so review them and see if you are following them.
In most situations, permit may not be necessary if only the part that is posing threat is cut down but not the entire tree. To make sure you're right, consult a professional arborist as they can tell the tree species and do the measurement of the tree. They can also help you refer to the council regulations to make sure you are doing it right.
Obtaining a permit
Getting a permit is easy as you just need to download the file from the council website. Ask a certified arborist to help you in completing the paperwork and evidence showing that removal is the only option. Once you finally get the green light, you can start tree removal Ipswich.
