If you are planning on removing or pruning trees in your Canberra garden you need to check first whether you require development approval from the Tree Protection Unit at the Territory and Municipal Services (TAMS) – this includes the trees in your backyard.

Canberra tree regulation applies to: 

  • trees over 12m high or with a canopy 12m or more wide trees with a trunk circumference of 1.5m or more, 1m above natural ground level and / or
  • trees which have two or more trunks and the total circumference of all the trunks, 1m above the natural ground level, is 1.5m or more.

TreeWorks is able to apply to the Tree Protection Unit at the Territory and Municipal Services (TAMS) on your behalf.

You can apply for an Urgent Circumstances authorisation if it’s an emergency and the tree poses a risk to property or life. Depending on the level of risk you may get an on the spot approval at Access Canberra Contact Centre – 13 22 81.

You can request an inspection and seek approval to remove registered or regulated trees by submitting an Application to Undertake a Tree Damaging Activity form available on the Transport Canberra and City Services website or by phoning Access Canberra Contact Centre – 13 22 81.

If a tree on the nature strip needs pruning or removal contact Canberra Connect on 13 22 81. Do not undertake any pruning of trees on the nature strip.
