Notable trees are those that have special protection and are listed individually or in stands in the District Plan.
No work can be carried out on, or within the drip line of, a notable tree without a land use consent.
Apply for a land use consent
Where a notable tree is within a road reserve, park or reserve you will also need the approval our Parks and Recreation team to undertake any work.
To allow for changes in the community's expectations and values over time, notable trees can be changed through a plan change process which involves formal consultation including submissions, hearings, reports and decisions.
