    Have a look at your councils Significant Tree policy. It is usually along these lines

    "A significant tree has a trunk circumference of 2.0 metres or more (measured at a point 1.0 metre above natural ground level). In the case of trees with multiple trunks, regulated trees are those with trunks having a total circumference of 2.0 metres or more and an average circumference of 625 millimetres or more (measured at a point 1.0 metre above natural ground level)."

    If its within these parameters there's nothing an arborist can do unless they are a danger of falling over.

    Just something you may already know but someone may find this useful :D

    Trees have been going down left right and centre around the beaches, plenty of locals are upset. May have settled a bit now, that was earlier in the year.
    So ask around the local laws or regulations have changed I believe. Plenty of blokes around with chain saws to help you out though

    I used this company twice. Not very cheap fee though. We applied tree removal with his reports. First time, 3 trees got approved. 2nd time, council rejected( Hills shire).

    When I was last in a tree hugging council area, I had the council out & advised I wanted to remove non native and replace with small manageable native, was approved straight away, so will all depend on your council & why you are doing it.
