All your resource consent and arboricultural assessment needs catered for.

Yes!  We can help with your arboricultural assessment and resource consent application.

A notable/scheduled tree you say? No problem! We can help with those to.

You may be required to obtain a resource consent from the Auckland Council if you want or need to prune or remove trees.  Most of the time, this is because one of the following applies:

  • You want to remove/prune/work within the drip line of a protected tree
  • You live within an S.E.A (Significant Ecological Area), near a waterway or in a coastal area
  • You have a notable/scheduled tree
  • The tree is Council-owned or on Council land (yes, even the ones planted by you)

We can assist with obtaining resource consent which can be either straightforward or complicated.  Unfortunately, the necessity of a consent will vary depending on your specific site or tree.  We’ll try our best to keep things simple and walk you through the process – no matter how complicated it might seem.

Stott & Co Tree Experts can assist you to get the resource consent you may need, provide you with an arboricultural assessment if required and Nick and Amy can  complete the job for you, too.

You can start the process yourself by jumping on the Auckland Council website, which can help you to determine what you need in order to get started, advise you which trees require consent or not, and how to apply.

If consent or an arboricultural assessment is required, Nick at Stott & Co Tree Experts can make this process much faster and easier for you.
