Tree Safety Management Plan

This Plan applies across Ausgrid’s entire distribution Network and area, including urban; rural, public and private lands.

Across Ausgrid’s Network, there are various organisations and individuals with vegetation management responsibilities, in addition to Ausgrid’s own responsibilities. These include Councils, landowners (both public and private) and other land occupiers. This Plan sets out the responsibilities of the various groups and describes how Ausgrid plans to interact with them. While the Plan applies directly to Ausgrid, it offers guidance to the other groups.
