The 10/50 Vegetation Clearing Scheme provides an additional way for NSW residents who live near bushland, to better prepare their homes for potential bush fires.
If you live in a designated area you're able to clear certain vegetation near your home without having to get approval from the local council or land services office.
The vegetation includes:
- trees on your property within 10 metres of your home
- underlying vegetation such as shrubs (not trees) on your property within 50 metres of your home.
For more detailed information on the scheme, visit the NSW Rural Fire Service.
