Who is responsible for emergency tree removal and damage?

Life can be unpredictable so the need for emergency tree removal can strike at any time. Large storms, strong winds and even earthquakes can cause a tree to fall, splinter or damage property and vehicles. When it comes to a fallen tree, the worst thing you can do is nothing. Failure to remove a tree can cause greater damage to property, endanger lives, and even affect essential services.

But, who is responsible for emergency tree removal? And who should you call?


Contact the SES

Depending on the extent of the damage, we recommend first contacting your State Emergency Service (the SES). As part of the first response team, SES can accurately assess the situation and remove any dangerous trees. If anyone is hurt or injured, then call Triple 0 immediately 

You should contact the SES if: 

  • Trees are obstructing or damaging power lines
  • Trees, limbs and debris are blocking roads and paths
  • Trees have fallen on public property such as nature strips 
  • Fallen tree, limb or debris has caused significant damage to your home 

If a tree does not pose an immediate danger to your property, family or essential services, then the SES will not remove it. They will remove a tree deemed a hazard, however, it will be your responsibility to clean the green waste left over. 

Call Jim’s

In the case of the SES not removing a tree or cleaning up green waste, do not attempt to remove it yourself. Instead, call the emergency tree experts – Jim’s Tree & Stump Removal.
