Tree Management Plan

ATree Management Plan (TMP) may be proposed for a registered tree as a mechanism for undertaking a range of activities that may affect the tree. The TMP would describe the status of the tree(s), their protection requirements and what activities may be undertaken (for example minor pruning in accordance with the standard for Pruning Amenity Trees (AS4373)). Activities undertaken in accordance with an approved TMP do not require any further approval from the Conservator. The TMP will become a formal requirement for any development application that involves a registered tree.

The Tree Protection Zone is defined as:

Diagram of a tree showing the extent of the tree protection zone.

Penalties for not complying with the Act

The fine for undertaking a prohibited activity without approval is between $1,250 to $56,000 for an individual and $6,250 to $280,000 for a company.
