Below are some questions you may have about aboriculture and looking after your trees


What are my responsibilities as a tree owner?
If a tree is growing within the boundary of your property then you have a responsibility to ensure it is maintained in a safe condition. As a tree owner you have a responsibility that your tree does not cause damage or injury to others. This is your duty of care under Common Law. back to top

My Neighbour's tree overhangs my property. What are my rights?

The law states that you are entitled to cut back branches from overhanging trees to the boundary line but does not allow you to trespass. It is always best to discuss the problem with the tree owner and come to agreement. It may be beneficial for the tree to receive a crown lift or reduction as opposed to cutting back just the offending branches. It is recommended to complete tree works in accordance with good arboricultural practice. Poor tree work can be counterproductive and is often potentially dangerous. back to top
