Will I need to obtain permission to remove trees in Bella Vista?
Yes, you will need to obtain permission. Trees are very important to the local area, as they contribute to the overall ambience/character, provide habitat for wildlife and provide shade for residents and visitors alike. The Hills Shire Council mandates that all private landholders who want to remove trees must lodge an application. The process is straightforward, and High Point Trees can assist you with any queries and help to hasten the process if you require urgent tree removal.
Pruning: You only need to complete an application if you want to prune more than 10% of the overall canopy. If you just want to give your trees a light trim whilst retaining more than 90% of the overall canopy, you do not require approval.
How do I obtain a permit?
For tree removal in Bella Vista, you need to download the Tree Management Application form from the Hills Shire Council website. There is a fee attached to the application, which can be paid either by cheque or money order.
Complete the form, and then mail it to the Hills Shire Council at:

Species Identification – High Point Trees
It can sometimes be difficult to determine the exact species of trees which you have on your property. If you are unsure, pick up the phone and give us a call. We will carry out a thorough investigation and provide you with an accurate ID.
This provides you with peace of mind, and you will know exactly what you can/cannot prune or cut. If you are found to have cut down a preserved species you may be subjected to legal action, and this can easily be avoided by seeking a professional ID.
