Residents of Mosman, New South Wales, can now easily find all the information required for the management of trees via a newly launched app called Trees Mosman.

Director Environment and Planning, Craig Covich, said, “Trees Mosman contains all tree information in one handy app and will simplify the tree permit process and better define tree-related policies while providing images and descriptions of exempt tree species. 

“Created by Mosman Council’s tree experts, Trees Mosman offers a simplified way to submit a tree permit application, request a street tree planting, report suspicious tree work and determine tree protection zones when planning construction or development works.

“Loaded with high quality images and detailed descriptions of exempt species, a frequently asked questions page and links for tree-related information and issues it provides an easy and efficient way to manage trees.”

The app is set to not only become a one-stop tree shop for residents, it has added features to encourage contractors to download and use it and is also set to improve the administration process by streamlining back office processes which will lead to further efficiencies.

The easy-to-navigate app features a streamlined homepage with clear icons to simplify navigation through the functions and, as a primary web-based app, initial downloading will be small and the app will be relatively fast to use.
