Clearing Trees and Vegetation

Know what you can and can’t do without a permit.

If you live in a rural or regional area you may not need a permit to clear trees, branches and scrub from around your home.

Reducing the vegetation around your home is one of the most important things you can do to keep your home safe in a bushfire.

Depending on where you live, the 10/30 rule and the 10/50 rule might apply. Check with your local council.


Check. Clear. Prepare.


Clearing up around your house in preparation for the fire season has never been so easy. Get on with it!
