People also ask, what trees can be cut down without permission?
New trees added to the list include bakain, bamboo, tut, guava and Ailanthus increasing the number to seven. “These trees are used as crops in rural areas therefore do not require any permission before cutting.
Also Know, can I trim council trees? If branches from a council tree are overhanging your property, you can cut them back yourself, unless the tree is protected by a Tree Preservation Order or is in a conservation area. You may prune the branches back to the boundary of your property but no further. The work must be done from your own property.
Besides, are pohutukawa trees protected in Auckland?
Pōhutukawa are native to New Zealand and in many parts of the country, they may be protected and therefore require special permission to remove – even to simply prune.
Is it illegal to cut down a tree on public land?
Entering onto private land and cutting down trees without permission is trespassing, even if it is by mistake. That kind of thing can land you in some very hot water, including some very serious monetary penalties. The good news is that the federal government does allow cutting in some of its national forests.
