Sometimes the best thing to do for your garden is have a tree removed. When they start to overgrow and take up too much room, it can start causing issues for the rest of the plants you have surrounding.
Why would a tree need removed?
Trees may have to be removed if
- The tree could be diseased, dying, or look to be on it’s last legs
- if you need the space to plant a new garden, build an extension on your home or look to pave or concrete the area
- Trees can sustain structural damage from extreme weather making them unsafe
- Trees can use up too much of the moisture in the soil beneath it
- An older tree can cause damage to the foundations of your home or to underground pipes.
Tree Pruning and Trimming
For the good health and growth of your tree, it is important that you are maintaining yours through pruning and trimming. There are many trees for tree cutting which many people get confused about! These essential tree services, which need to be done using the proper techniques, so you and your family can be safe without the concern of trees causing hazards. Properly maintaining your trees, through periodic pruning, enhances the overall life and invigorates healthy plant growth – thereby ensuring a safer, more valuable asset to your home.
Lopping is normally when the tree has overgrown and needs reduced in size, if posing a hazard, can eliminate in the short term. This can be a process that needs done every few years depending on the condition on of the tree. Pruning can often bring trees to a bare state whereby they are cut back, which we do not encourage if looking to sell a property. If you are selling, we advise maintaining a tree more and not going down the route of lopping and disfiguring the tree.

Tree Removal FAQ
How Much Does Tree Removal Cost?
Prices for hiring tree surgeons can vary from $100 – $5,000 or more, depending on the specifics of the job and surrounding circumstances.
The average fee of removing a tree is around $850, however the location of the tree on your property can be a defining factor as well.
Other factors that can play a key part in pricey your estimate will be:
- Type of Tree – larger trees with larger branches like gum trees will cost you more
- Tree weight – the heavier the tree, the more complex the job can be, therefore more labour intensive
- Accessibility of the tree – if the tree is restricted behind a building or other trees, it can cause issues when trying to carry out the tree removal, and slow down the job, therefore be additional cost overall
- Risk factor – if there is danger to the tree specialists when carrying out the job, it will mean a higher rate is charged to match the complexity and risk of job.
Why is tree removal so expensive?
Tree removal has many variables. The principal reason for the increased cost is insurance. Tree removal comes with higher risks, which means the high premium for carrying out the work safely. Insurance may be as high as 25 per cent of what an employee takes away as a wage.
On top of this, tree surgeons often operate machinery which is expensive and is an overhead to them to maintain.
How does an arborist differ from a tree surgeon?
A tree surgeon works on trees to maintain, i.e., prunes and cares for old and damaged trees to preserve them. To be a tree surgeon, you will often be working at heights using chainsaws and other power tools to remove and trim trees.
However an arborist is a trained individual who plants, maintain, as well as perform hazard assessments on individual trees, vines, shrubs or other perennial woody plant species.
What Tools Are Used During Tree Removals?
Every job is unique and requires a different set of tools and skills. We often use tools like chainsaws, harnesses, ropes, tackles and pulleys to get the job done efficiently and safety.
For larger jobs we often use additional services like cranes to safely bring trees down.
What Else Do I Need To Consider When Doing Tree Removal?
Certain trees are protected depending where it is and often due to of the surrounding wildlife. Other trees require council permission to make any alterations.
Our team of tree experts are happy to assist with any conversations with councils so you don’t need to stress over these tasks.
Can I remove a tree myself?
There are many risks involved in tree removal and trimming, from working at heights and handling machinery like chainsaws – it can be a very dangerous environment to be operating in!
Our advice – If you would have to use a ladder to get to and remove tree limbs, that tree is too large for you to remove safely.
If you were to get up on a ladder with a chainsaw, this could be extremely dangerous. You could fall off the ladder, lose control or something a lot worse! And the tree branches you are trimming could fall on your home, hit a pedestrian, hit you, or even hit the ladder, knocking you off while holding an operating chainsaw. Falling tree branches or limbs are large and completely unpredictable, and cause horrible destruction.
What is the most effective way to remove a tree?
The size of the tree dictates the best way of removing it from the ground. However, the easiest way to cut down a tree is to use a chain saw. Ensure that you clear the area around the tree – make sure no other people are standing around either.
Removing a tree stump takes different forms; you can dig out the stump using a shovel for small stumps. A stump grinder is often used in this operation. If the stump is too large to remove… Drill eight holes in the stump and pour the chemical. Give it 4-6 weeks to rot then dig it out with a shovel.
