FOLLOWING A FEW GUIDELINES COULD Everyone has the right to plant and grow trees on their property. However, if any trees, roots or branches cross TREES HELP AVOID FUTURE HEADACHES. the boundary they are considered to be trespassing and may be cut or trimmed by the adjoining neighbour. The District Plan does not control the height of trees, shrubs or plants, or where they are planted on a property. The council only gets involved when rules in the District Plan are being broken. Trees shouldn’t be planted on the berm outside your property. This is because services like water pipes and electricity could be affected. Also remember it is your responsibility to prune trees so they don’t hang over the footpath. It is important to select tree species that will grow to a scale appropriate to the area and to the purpose wanted. Obtain professional advice and consider: • Site size and shape: before planting think about how the site may change, whether there is enough room for the tree when it is fully grown. Will its roots and branches affect buildings? • Views: would a mature tree block views or the sun for you or neighbours in the future? • Exposure: consider how windy or sunny the site is. Species like manuka, pohutukawa and kowhai adapt to exposed areas and can provide good wind breaks. • Appearance: size, colour, scent, THROUGHOUT MANUKAU, TREES, profusion and the season of fl owers and NATIVE AND EXOTIC, MAKE A SIGNIFICANT fruit are quite different from one tree to CONTRIBUTION TO THE CHARACTER AND the next.
