We carry out tree maintenance and the removal of trees that are located on Council land, if the tree is causing a risk to the community.
Tree clearance around powerlines
We actively work with SA Power Networks to reduce the impact trees on Council land have around powerlines. We manage tree maintenance in accordance with the Australian Standard AS 4373-2007 Pruning of Amenity Trees.
You can also find tree and vegetation clearance information in the Reduced Pruning Around Low Voltage Powerlines fact sheet provided by SA Power Networks.
If you think a tree on Council land requires pruning due to there being inadequate clearance around powerlines you can apply for tree maintenance.
Tree health and community safety
The removal of trees on Council land generally only occur if the tree is showing signs of decline, or if the tree is a health and safety risk to the community.
Please consider these circumstances before you apply for tree removal.
