10/50 Fire Hazard & Council Tree Management Information

10/50 Vegetation Clearing

The NSW Rural Fire Service introduced the 10/50 vegetation clearing to assist land owners to better prepare for bush fires.

The scheme allows people in a designated area to:

  • Clear trees on their property within 10 metres of a home, without seeking approval; and
  • Clear underlying vegetation such as shrubs (but not trees) on their property within 50 metres of a home, without seeking approval.

Please note that the 10/50 areas do change at times so its best to always reconfirm if you are in the 10/50 area the day the tree work is expected to commence.

Luke and his team at Tip Top were terrific to deal with from start to finish. Incredibly professional, cleaned up after the job, super friendly and nothing was a hassle for them. It was an amazingly coordinated job - one enormous Gum and a large Paperbark both removed in one day! Highly recommend A+ service.

We were so happy with the work that Luke and the team did on our property. Luke spent a lot of time discussing the needs of each tree and was sure to clarify the work we wanted done. The site was left clean and tidy. Would recommend

I've had number tree services complete work for me over the years. Luke and his team have been by far, the best I've dealt with from quote to completion. They arrived when they said they would, and to be brutally honest with myself left the yard in a neater condition than when they left. Lukes quote also came at the best value of a few I had obtained.
