Why preserve our trees?

Sydney is our most populous Australian city, preserving the natural environment is therefore more challenging and vital than in other parts of the country. Our trees do far more than simply bringing the leafy green character to our streets and parks. Healthy trees help to filter the air we breath and remove the toxic gases from our air. This alone should put them as a top priority, but they don’t stop their work there.

Trees are the lungs of our planet. They bring vital nutrients to the local ecosystem and are home to a huge array of living creatures. They have deeper effects on our mental and physical health too. Trees help to reduce the effects of urban heat islands in the city, which lowers city temperatures and makes our cities more livable. They are also proven to reduce our levels of stress and anxiety. So the important question to ask is: how can we preserve our precious trees?

How to maintain your trees

There are a number of crucial strategies to protecting and preserving your private trees. Instead of delving into the nitty gritty details of tree preservation tactics, we have distilled the advise of our professional arborists into two simple proactive steps: health assessments and pruning.

Tree Health Assessments

Health assessments – or ‘pro arborist reports’ – are often a prerequisite for council applications for tree removal, construction or renovations. However, in addition to meeting the requirements for council permits, health assessments are an invaluable service for helping you to monitor and preserve the health of your trees.

Without regular checkups your trees can deteriorate in health and structural integrity without you realising. This in turn makes them more susceptible to external forces like wind, rain or storms. Once these problems all combine you risk dangerous results like your tree falling down or dropping branches during a period of strong winds. This can lead to bodily harm, property damage or massive financial consequences.

By having a professional arborist assess the condition of your private trees you can identify any pre-existing, developing, or potential risks that could cause the stability and safety of your tree to be compromised. Preemptive measures like health assessments can get the jump on any of these problems, giving you the best chance of fixing the problems, or removing the tree before it has the chance to cause much bigger issues for yourself or your property.

Tree Pruning

Pruning is one of the most under rated methods for maintaining the health of your tree and preventing it from becoming unsafe. Ensuring your private tree is pruned of its excess leaves can have wide ranging and profound effects on the wellbeing of your tree. While it may seem like a small thing, this simple service can help to identify any early signs of deterioration while also reducing the weight on the branches. Minimising the weight on your tree’s limbs will drastically cut down the chances of hazardous incidents. Many of the issues of falling branches and trees come from neglect and the resulting overgrowth of leaves that adds weight on their extremities.

Having your tree regularly pruned can also have the added benefit of saving you a lot of time and money. While the initial price of pruning may seem like extra costs, it can save you spending a lot more money down the road. A neglected tree is expensive. It drops leaves. These leaves clutter your garden. They block sunlight reaching your plants. They clutter your roof. They get into gutters and block drains. This can cause massive repair bills and expensive plumbing services. But it doesn’t stop there. A neglected tree drops branches. It will grow unbalanced and instable, making it much more likely to fall and cause expensive damage to your property. A tree left uncared for becomes much more susceptible to wind and rain as its excess leaves act like a sail, picking up the wind and causing extreme stress to be put on the tree’s junctures.

All of these issues are overcome with our professional pruning services. By setting up a professional pruning schedule you won’t just save money and time, but a lot of stress. Not knowing whether your large trees are safe can cause a lot of anxiety for residents and home owners. These fears are compounded during periods of high winds and storms. There is absolutely no reason to carry this extra mental burden. Lighten the load, save yourself money and protect your home by starting a regular professional pruning schedule today.

Tree Removal in action

Tree removal permits

If you are planning of carrying out any significant tree works job on your property, you will require permission from your local council. This permission is generally granted in the form of a tree removal permit which will require undergoing an application process. These applications often involve paying a fee and providing specific details of the condition, location and species of the tree. In addition to this, a prerequisite for many council tree removal permits is to have the application accompanied by a professional arborist’s report to verify the information about the tree and the plans for what work will be undertaken in the tree works.

While tree protection laws are devised on a council by council basis, violation of these laws can result in legal action and heavy financial penalties. It is highly recommended that you check your local council’s tree protection laws prior to engaging any tree service. Some cut-rate tree removal Sydney services try to circumvent these laws as a means of saving themselves money and time. Unfortunately the consequences of this type of illegal behaviour falls on the resident or owner of the property. Therefore these discount tree service try to save themselves money while leaving you exposed to legal ramifications.

Jim’s Tree & Stump Removal always abides by local, state and federal tree protection laws. In addition, we also follow Australian Pruning Standards and always strive to elevate the standards of the tree industry. If you are unsure what tree protection laws apply to your home, get in touch with us today. Your local Jim’s Trees can let you know what the requirements are in your local area.

Ultimately tree removal Sydney prices are determined by the amount of time it takes to complete the job. There is no simple formula because a quote takes into account many different considerations that will affect the overall difficulty and amount of time it will require to complete the tree removal. Tree removal costs depend on a wide range of important factors that are relevant to both the direct and indirect condition of the tree. These include the size, species and condition of the tree. It also includes the level of access to the site, the type of terrain the tree is on and whether there are any surrounding hazards. Any one of these factors can increase the amount of time and the difficulty of the job.

To take an example, the site on which the tree is located can have a dramatic impact on the overall time it takes to remove the tree. If the tree has easy access and is on flat ground far away from any roads or traffic, then the tree removal time will likely be expedited. This will result in the work being completed faster, with less crew members required and less risk to the workers.Conversely, if the same tree was on a site with limited access, steep terrain and lots of nearby hazards, the overall time to complete the tree removal will be much longer. More crew members will likely be required, progress will be slower and more care will have to be paid to safety due to the nearby hazards. This example illustrates that while the size, species and condition of the tree is important, it is not the only factor that influences the overall tree removal costs.

If you’ve made it through the explanation above and are still asking “what are the tree removal costs” then you have certainly earned some indication. While we can’t provide exact figures – because every tree removal job is different – we can give you an idea with the average price of tree removal Sydney. For a Sydney tree on private property, the average tree removal costs around $800 to $1200. However, for small trees this can go as low as $250 and for large mature trees it can be as much as $3000, depending on the aforementioned factors.

This is one of the single most common questions our crews and customer service specialists get asked. It’s understandable because the terms are frequently used interchangeably. This writer is not innocent of that charge. However, the term lopper has risen to prominence in recent years as a result of being one of the most commonly searched terms by those looking for tree services. However, many arborists balk at the term. This is because within the industry, ‘lopping’ refers to the unsustainable removal of large sections of a tree, generally its canopy. The term ‘lopper’ therefore indicates a certain failure to meet Australian Pruning Standards and a misunderstanding of proper tree maintenance strategies. The term ‘arborist’ on the other hand, refers to a tree surgeon who has earned their arboreal qualifications and studied horticulture to a very high standard.

The term ‘lopper’ is one that has risen in popularity in the general public due to the ease of expression, but within the tree industry and among professional tree surgeons it remains an unpopular term. It is best to keep the term ‘lopper’ to your internet searches and politely refer to any tree surgeon you meet in person as an arborist.

This question is a very common one, but we will tweak it slightly and instead answer the more important question of: “Should I remove a tree myself?” We have no idea whether you can remove a tree yourself, but we are very sure that you should not. Tree removal is dangerous, technical and requires the right training and machinery. Without the appropriate training, experience, skills, tools, safety protocols and supporting crew members, you are putting yourself and anyone around you in a high level of danger.

Even small trees can be risky to perform a tree removal on without the right knowledge and tools. However, the danger is not restricted to yourself. If done improperly, a bad tree removal can permanently ruin the soil and surrounding ecosystem. This type of environmental damage can have long lasting effects on the health, growth and prosperity of your entire garden.

Tree removal costs are far cheaper than the potential financial repercussions of destroying your property while trying to excavate a tree by yourself. Our tree removal Sydney crews are fast, efficient, friendly and professional. They also have the machinery and skills to carry out an end-to-end tree removal Sydney. This means they have stump grinding and wood chipping machinery that can allow them to complete the job and transport all of the green waste away from the property for you. This ensures that your home and property are clean and tidy at the completion of our job.

A tree removal should be done when your arborist recommends it. Our Sydney tree services include health assessments that can identify whether and when your trees should be removed. If the motivation to engage our tree services is to remove dangerous large trees, then this should be done immediately. If the reason to remove the trees is for aesthetic reasons, then obviously the time frame is less important. The import thing is to speak with our tree services specialists to determine what the best course of action is for you and your trees.

The job of removing trees is not complete if the stumps are left to rot in the ground. That’s why we come to every job equipped with a stump grinder and wood chipper so that we can do the extrema work to completely remove your Sydney tree. Whether the stumps are from large trees or small trees, no job is too difficult for our crew to work through.
