Changes to Tree Management on Private Land


We object to the proposed changes because:


  • Arborists must assess if tree is dangerous not rely on owner's concern

  • 'Concern' will be abused for reasons other than safety just like RFS 10/50

  • International standard Safe and Useful Life Expectancy must be used

  • Strike distance of 15m+ would allow felling of Hills oldest and largest trees

  • Storm failure of one branch must not permit whole tree removal

  • Inclusion of two Threatened Species in exempt list is unacceptable

  • Council appears to have decided 5 metre law before it's exhibited

  • Inconsistent with state target of 40 percent increase in tree canopy across Sydney

  • Property owners cannot have "the right" to do anything they want
