Tree Pruning & Tree Removal Services

Tree Pruning

Tree pruning is the foundation of tree maintenance and should be commenced early in the life of the tree. The sooner you begin to have your trees professionally pruned, the better the overall health outcomes are likely to be for your tree. We, therefore, recommend setting a regular tree pruning schedule so that our arborists can monitor and maintain the condition of your tree. By cutting back excess leaves, shaping the canopy and redistributing the weight throughout the tree, our tree pruning service can keep your tree healthy, vibrant and safe.

Tree Removal

Tree removal is one of our core services because it is essential for keeping communities safe from the risk of falling trees. It is always important to use a professional arborist when removing a tree as it is a highly dangerous process that requires the right training, experience and tools to carry out safely. Our professional arborists can remove a tree from your residential or commercial property quickly, safely and in the most environmentally friendly way possible.

Tree Lopping

Tree lopping is one of the most used and least understood terms in the tree service industry. It is often used as a catch-all term to indicate actions like cutting, pruning and trimming. However, within the industry, the technical term is more akin to the term “topping”, which refers to the indiscriminate removal of large sections of a tree’s canopy. Tree service professionals dislike the term “lopping” because it generally indicates the careless removal of branches or canopy. This technical definition of lopping fails to meet Australian Pruning Standards. However, all of the work done by our arborists and crews aligns with Australian Pruning Standards. Our teams always perform their work in a safe and sustainable way.

Stump Removal (Stump grinding)

In order to successfully complete the tree removal process with a tree on your property, it is important that you also have the stump removed as well. By leaving the stump to sit and rot, you are opening yourself up to a wide range of issues that can grow in size, difficulty and cost to resolve. Tree stumps that have been left after the removal of a tree remain connected to the root system and thus will continue to survive, though in somewhat of a ‘zombie state’. These zombie tree stumps won’t grow back into trees, but they will continue to absorb nutrients from the soil through their expanding and thriving root system. As the tree stump remains active, it can become a hotbed for rodents, infestations and disease. As a homeowner, this can be an absolute nightmare and a potentially expensive issue to deal with. In order to avoid these problems down the line, we always recommend a tree stump removal is performed immediately after removing the tree.

Pro Arborist Reports

Professional arborist reports have a wide range of uses. From helping with council applications to assessing the overall health of your tree, these reports are an invaluable means of evaluating your trees current condition. Pro arborist reports are an essential means of determining the health of trees. In conducting a report, an arborist will give the tree a comprehensive analysis to identify any signs of infestations, damage, disease, structural imbalances or overweight branches. In addition to these important observations, an arborist (Sydney) will note the location, species and environmental overlays relevant to the tree. These elements are necessary when applying for permits from the local council as they inform the council as to any protections or zoning restrictions that may prevent work from being done on or near the tree.

Council works

In addition to servicing trees on residential and commercial properties, we also do valuable tree work for councils. This includes professional tree services in public areas, schools and streets. Most council tree works are intended to improve the safety of the community. As such, a majority of the tree services that our qualified arborists perform for councils involve power line clearance, storm cleanup, fire safety and lopping of dangerously overweight branches. While councils generally have arborists that they work with, occasionally they will seek the help of other arborists in the community to assist with large and important jobs.

Emergency tree removal/Storm clean up

Sometimes there is no time to apply for a tree removal permit from the council. When a tree is about to fall or has already fallen, contact our tree surgeons in Sydney who can perform emergency tree surgery in order to mitigate any immediate hazards and ensure that the community remains safe. A professional arborist (or tree surgeon) is qualified to perform emergency tree services such as tree removal, storm cleanups and tree lopping. In the wake of powerful storms, there can be a path of destruction in the form of fallen trees and branches. When these trees and branches block roads and pathways it’s important to enlist an arborist in Sydney to perform emergency tree removal and storm cleanup services on the fallen trees.

Wood Chipping & Mulching

Carrying out community tree works in Sydney every day creates a lot of green waste. Luckily our crews are equipped with an industrial wood chipper that can make short work of even the largest trees. By feeding segments of trees through the wood chipper, the powerful machine breaks down the wood and turns it into fresh mulch composed of locally sourced, organic wood chips. This type of mulch is ideal for use on your garden to promote healthy growth by regulating the temperature and moisture level of the soil. By wood chipping the green waste created through our tree services, we are able to transport the green waste off-site for our clients while also offering the community the chance to buy mulch that is sourced from their own community, free of chemicals and great for the garden.

Power line Clearance

Ensuring that there is a safe and appropriate distance between trees and power lines is one of the essential services that our arborists in Sydney routinely perform. Branches too close to sources of electricity are a dangerous fire hazard that can put you, your home and your neighbours at risk. It is highly recommended that you have a qualified arborist to assess the safety and condition of your trees regularly. If you notice any trees on your property or nearby that are too close to power lines, it is important to act as soon as possible to mitigate the risk of an electrical fire breaking out on the trees in your neighbourhood.

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.
