Tree Preservation

Where the lease contains a tree preservation clause, lot owner(s) has the responsibility to ensure that trees are not unnecessarily interfered with or removed without the prior written consent of the Director of Lands. In granting consent, the Director of Lands may impose such conditions as to transplanting and/or compensatory planting as he deems appropriate. For tree felling proposal arising from building development in private project, please refer to Lands Department Practice Note Issue No. 2/2020 for details on compliance with tree preservation clause under lease.
