The Report Storm Damage Tree Removal Form should be used when a tree poses an immediate risk to life or property due to a demonstrated sudden change to its structure as a result of a severe storm or wind event. Documentation for removal must be in accordance with Part A Section 3.3 (1) of the Urban Forest Technical Manual. You are not required to submit the completed form and evidence to City of Newcastle unless the storm damaged tree is (or forms part of) a heritage item, in which case this form must be submitted to City of Newcastle within 5 working days of the tree removal. If you are unsure if your tree forms part of a heritage item, please contact us for verification.
For further information on removal of private trees and shrubs please refer to Parts A and C of the Urban Forest Technical Manual
