No judgement! We all have items on our todo lists that just never seem to get ticked off.
So before you pick up the phone to book it all in, you want to make sure you’ve dotted the i’s and crossed the t’s to make everything run as smoothly as possible.

These three different examples show just how varied each council can be, so please get in touch with your council directly to get the most specific information to your area.

So, now you’ve got all the right information to prepare for the big moment, you can finally cross ‘prune/remove tree in backyard’ off your todo list!
