Trees on neighbours property

Talk to your neighbours first if you are concerned about a tree on their property.

We cannot inspect trees on your neighbour's property unless we have their written permission. They need to fill out and sign an assessment form. The fee is $200 for the first tree inspected and $87 for each additional tree.

We will send an arborist report to your neighbour and to you if they agree.

You have the right to prune an overhanging tree to the boundary fence line. You do not have the right to enter their property without permission.

More information on your rights and responsibilities is available from the Dispute Settlement Centre of Victoria.
