What you need to do

Trees on public or City of Sydney-owned land

  • Complaints about these trees can be directed to us. 
  • Complete our online form where you’ll be asked to:
    • describe the work needed
    • describe the safety risks the tree poses
    • attach up to 5 photos (limited to 20MB each) showing the issues.
Make a report

We won’t prune or remove a healthy tree due to leaf, flower or fruit drop. This is considered a natural process, and the benefits that trees provide outweigh the minor inconvenience of regular property maintenance.

Trees on private land

Before you start 

Street trees

Read about street tree pruning, power line clearances and removal.

We also have fact sheets on trees and their effects on drains, pipes, buildings and other structures.
