Council / Arborist Reports
Since the 1st of January 2012 and the evolving of four councils into one there has been many changes to the tree laws in Auckland. The Policy now is to "Check before you Chop".
Basically, prior to the 1st of 2012 trees were protected by size and species. Now, changes are in place to protect trees in some areas and relax tree protection rules in others.
So, if your unsure about pruning of removing a given tree finding out is as easy as picking up the phone and talking to the planning help desk @ Auckland City Council. 09 379 2020.
Scheduled Trees here is a link to the list of Scheduled trees which came into effect on the 1st of January 2012.
