Case Studies

During our time in business we have come across many unique situations.

 

I thought it might be helpful to begin documenting some of these in the form of case studies.

 

Go ahead and read through them, they’re interesting even if not particularly relevant to you.

 

I will be adding more as we go.

 

If you have a circumstance that you need some advice on give us a call on 3312 7220.

You planted a tree in your garden, and now the tree is interfering with the neighbours television reception or their solar panelling is unable to function properly.  It’s always best to sort the problem out with your neighbours first, but knowing your legal rights and responsibilities can save you a lot of headaches.  You can check Neighbourhood Disputes (Dividing Fences and Rees) Act 2011 here: https://www.legislation.qld.gov.au/view/pdf/2013-04-05/act-2011-025

 

Which also references Your responsibilites as a tree-keeper or simply call Brisbane City Council or Moreton Bay Regional Council and ask them for advice.

Laws, rules and regulations about what you can and cannot do in your garden can be confusing.

Here’s a short list of the sites I keep returning to and some others I think are worth having available.

I mainly visit due to them having heaps of information that is relevant to the Arboricultural industry.

I hope they help you out too.

 

Contact your local Council for information about Vegetation Protection Orders, Significant Landscape Trees and Covenants. See if your tree is a declared weed species.

Get in touch for concern over or maintenance of Council’s Natural Assets (Street Trees) and fence line pruning laws including disputes with neighbours.
