Report a concern with a tree

Urgent requests and storm events

On public land

If a tree on public land is threatening public safety, please report it to us immediately by calling (03) 9705 5200. We will attend as a priority to:

  • fallen branches blocking roads and footpaths
  • trees causing damage to private property
  • anything that poses a hazard to you

We will make the situation safe within 24 hours. We try to clear everything up in one go but this might not be possible if we receive a lot of requests. We will make sure to completely clear the area in the following weeks. If you notice debris on your property or nature strip after 4 weeks, please report it online.

On private property

For dangerous situations on your private property, please contact the SES on 132 500.

In an emergency, call 000. 

Routine requests

Report Online

You can use our online tree maintenance form to report the following concerns on public land:

  • A fallen or snapped tree branch needs collecting
  • A fallen tree needs collecting
  • A tree is causing a concern (size, debris, branches)
  • A tree is unhealthy (dying, pests, disease)
  • You would like us to plant a new tree 

In most cases, we will assess your request and inspect the area within 10 business days. We may take longer to consider requests for new trees.

Removing tree stumps

After we have removed a tree, we will:

  1. mark the stump with paint
  2. return and remove the stump within 4 weeks
  3. organise for a replacement tree to planted if necessary

The process can take time because we need to use specialist equipment. If you find that the stump has not been removed after 4 weeks, please contact us.

Sometimes after high winds and bad weather, we may take longer to attend to your request. We will return and complete the job as soon as possible. 

Trees on private property

Unfortunately we cannot help with trees that are on private property. You will need to contact a tree service provider for this. 

Pruning Council trees yourself

You cannot prune or change trees on Council land in any way. Penalties may apply. This is to protect your safety and preserve the environment, animal population and landscape around the City of Casey.

If you have any questions about the trees in your area, please contact us or complete the form above.
