Tree values and amenity fees
Hobsons Bay City Council owned, or managed trees have a monetary value; this value is calculated using Hobsons Bay’s Tree Amenity Calculator.
Where a public tree removal is approved by Council’s arborist in relation to a development, the associated cost of the tree and its removal must be paid by the property owner or representative prior to the removal.
The tree amenity fees recovered by Council will be used to improve our urban forest.
