Tree Removal Sydney

Sometimes there is no option but to remove a tree that is posing a threat, or is diseased and damaged beyond repair. Whatever your reasons for removing a tree on your property, our team has the knowledge and skills to get the job done. There are many different ways to remove the tree, and our team is trained and experienced with all kinds of trees.

Our tree removal service

Each tree is different. After our assessment has ascertained a tree needs to be removed, our team of qualified arborists will conduct a further assessment of the tree and the landscape surrounding it to determine how best to safely remove the tree.

Sometimes the entire tree has to be removed if it has lived past its usefulness and is starting to decay. Tree removal may be necessary if a storm has caused irreparable damage to your tree. If your tree is encroaching on your plumbing or your home’s foundation, removal may be required. Or you may need to remove the tree to make room for a garden or an addition.

As every member of our team is a qualified and insured arborist, you can rest assured that we will make the best decision for your particular situation.

Tree felling

Tree felling is done when a tree is isolated enough that bringing it down in one piece would not cause damage to the surrounding environment.  Most often this is done in settings such as urban parks or paddocks, where there is space for the tree to fall without disturbing the surrounding environment.

Even in large open spaces, felling a tree can be a complex and dangerous process. Our professional team of arborists can assess the impact of felling a tree, and plan the best way forward to remove the tree safely and expertly.

Tree dismantling

This is when the tree is removed piece by piece. Each piece is fastened with ropes and securely lowered to the ground in a controlled manner.  This is the method most often used in built up suburban areas, as it is safest.

We have many qualified climbing arborists on our tree removal teams, so most often we will climb the tree in safety harnesses to carefully remove each piece.

Sometimes a tree will be too dangerous, or otherwise unsuitable for climbing.  In those cases, we will use a cherry picker to carefully dismantle the tree.
