Dangerous roadside tree removal - rural areas

In conjunction with the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE), the Tasman District Council is offering a free service to residents to remove hazardous trees from rural roadsides and adjacent properties, where they pose a risk to road users.

The aim of this project is to 
improve the safety of our roads and redeploy workers, from all industries, that have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak and lockdown.

We’d like to know about any problems in your area, particularly:

· overhanging trees or branches that could fall onto the footpath or road,

· overgrown trees that reduce road users views of the road.

Fill in the form below or email us at projects@tasman.govt.nz, with your name, contact phone number, the location of the hazard and a brief description of the problem. If you can, please provide photos.

Once received, we’ll assess your submission and prioritise it according to the risk to the public. If corrective action is required, we’ll assign the work to one of our teams, who will then be in touch to discuss the options available.

Please note: This is a “one-time only” initiative with a fixed, 100% Ministry funded budget, managed by the Tasman District Council. Qualified tree specialists will be engaged for all tree felling and limb removal work.
