Tree pruning or tree removal

If a tree has grown into a location that you consider dangerous it may be eligible to be removed or pruned by the City in accordance with Council's policy for tree removal.

You can now send in your details electronically to report a dangerous tree or shrub on City property that may be eligible for removal or pruning via customer@rockingham.wa.gov.au.

Verge vegetation treatments

In June 2002 Council adopted a verge development policy that relates to the area of land between a road edge and the adjacent property boundary. The policy was developed to ensure that street verges within the City of Rockingham are developed to an appropriate and consistent standard with due regard to aesthetics and public safety.

See the Street Verge Development Policy or contact the City of Rockingham for further information.
