Brisbane tree removal and lopping services – Your local professionals
Local professionals helping the Brisbane community
The success of our business relies on the strength of our community connection. Our crew is made up of members of the local Brisbane community who care about preserving the rich native ecosystem. Since its inception, Jim’s Tree & Stump Removal has been working to preserve Brisbane’s healthy tree population and remove those that have become hazardous. By constantly supporting the whole lifecycle of our trees we can ensure that our community remains beautiful, sustainable, healthy and safe.
On the flipside, neglecting your trees can lead to a long list of problems – from the ugly to the dangerous. Trees left without tree lopping and assessment or maintenance can quickly become an eyesore. As their leaves become overgrown, they can block essential sunlight to the plants below, obstruct precious vistas and cause a nightmare for residents left to pick up their droppings.
In addition to these smaller issues, a tree left to overgrow can have their structural integrity compromised. As the leaves build up on the larger branches, the extra weight can put strain on the junction with the trunk, and also act as a sail to the wind. As your trees become imbalanced from their foliage and blown around by the wind, they become a serious health risk to you, nearby residents, passing pedestrians and even wildlife and require serious consideration whether they should be left or lopped.
The Jim’s Trees FAQ
How do you maintain healthy trees?
The protection and prosperity of Brisbane trees relies on the services of qualified arborists as much as the care and attention needed from tree owners. The first step to taking care of your tree is to determine its current condition. This can be done by any tree services in Brisbane with qualified arborists and will help you to identify any underlying health or structural concerns. If the tree is found to be overgrown or imbalanced, tree lopping may be required to remove any oversized branches.
Why remove a tree?
Our professional tree removalists provide fast tree services in Brisbane and the surrounding region. Our philosophy is about making tree loppers and removal services accessible to everyone. A tree can become hazardous through any number of factors, from age and disease to storms and infestations. Once a tree has become unsafe it is important for the residents and the community that we intervene as soon as possible. This can be done through tree lopping of oversized branches or through the complete removal of trees.
Tree removals are a necessary part of the ecosystem but a highly dangerous process. For this reason it is important that you do not attempt any tree removal on your own. Our teams are equipped with the best industry tools, training and qualifications to ensure they can perform a tree removal with the least risk possible.
Does anyone cut trees down for free in Brisbane?
If there is a tree on council land that you believe needs a complete tree removal, you can make a request to the council to have this done. While the council will cover the costs of the tree service, it will not be done for free. If someone offers you a tree removal for free you should be highly sceptical. It is very likely that person is untrained in tree services and lacking the right resources to safely remove tree branches or perform a complete extraction.
NOTE: tree removal and tree lopping of council trees is illegal in Brisbane and can only be done by a trained arborist with the permission of the council. If you would like council trees looked at, contact a Brisbane tree service or your local council to learn more.

Should I remove a tree close to House?
As with most questions about tree services, the answer to this is dependent on the specific circumstances. If the tree close to your house has large, overhanging branches and is a risk of falling, then it should probably be cut down or lopped to reduce risk. The best way to be safe and have peace of mind is to hire a Brisbane arborist to inspect your trees. Of the many services they can provide, health assessments are one of the most valuable for identifying potential hazards and pre-existing conditions.
