Trees play an important role in our environment. They provide habitat for wildlife and protect soil and water supplies.
Councils have a criteria for assessing trees for removal. Some possible valid reasons for removal include:
* Tree is dead, dying or diseased.
* The tree presents a danger to people or property.
* The tree has been planted in an inappropriate location.
* The tree is an exempt species (you can find a list of exempt trees on your council's website.)
