Tree Work Management – Check Before You Chop
If you want to remove, prune or even work near a tree, you may need a resource consent. It’s important that you check before you carry out any tree work. Contact Auckland Tree Removals now to see what restrictions apply to trees on your property. We can guide you through the tree removal consent process and look after all your tree work needs.

Cutting or removing protected trees can incur a fine under the RMA. To avoid this, contact our professional tree wok specialists and quality arborists for advice, we can guide you through how to apply for a resource consent if necessary.
