In most circumstances a permit is not required from the City of Newcastle for pruning of trees or shrubs on private land, however a Pruning Specification form may be required to be completed.
The Newcastle Urban Forest Technical Manual is to be consulted before undertaking pruning works in all circumstances.
For further information on pruning of private trees and shrubs please refer to our Tree Pruning page.
