Tree Removal

Big trees, especially those in older areas of Canberra, are beautiful. That is, until they grow into power lines or their root systems wreak havoc with your plumbing.

Healthy trees bring life and colour to your property, but dead or damaged trees can become dangerous. We try to retain trees wherever possible, but sometimes the need to remove a tree is unavoidable.

  • Storm damage can weaken the structural integrity of a tree, making it unstable
  • Infection with disease or pest infestation can make a tree hazardous
  • Overgrown root systems can cause problems with underground pipes or your home’s foundations.

If your tree is affected by a potential hazard to your safety, it’s smart to remove it before it becomes an emergency.

Tree Services FAQs

How much does it cost to remove a tree?

A: The cost of having your tree removed can vary widely depending on several factors, including the size of the tree, its location, the complexity of the job, and the company you hire to do the work. On average, the cost to remove a single tree can range from $150 to $1,500 or more. Some factors that may affect the cost include:

Size of the tree: Larger trees generally cost more to remove.
Location: Trees that are located near buildings, power lines, or other obstacles may require additional precautions and specialized equipment, which can increase the cost.
Complexity of the job: Trees that are difficult to access, or that require special techniques to remove, may cost more to remove.
Company you hire: Different companies may have different pricing structures or additional fees, so it’s important to get multiple quotes from reputable companies before making a decision.
It’s important to note that some companies may also charge additional fees for stump removal or debris cleanup. Be sure to ask for a detailed breakdown of all costs before hiring a company to remove a tree.

What Certifications do you have?

Operating a tree removal business in Canberra, ACT, you need to have appropriate certifications and licenses.

The ACT government requires tree removal companies to hold a Tree Service Licence issued by Access Canberra, which is the regulatory agency responsible for managing occupational licensing in the ACT. To obtain this license, the business owner must demonstrate that they have the necessary qualifications and experience in arboriculture or tree surgery, as well as appropriate public liability insurance.

In addition to the Tree Service Licence, individual workers who perform tree removal or arborist services must also hold a White Card, which is a national accreditation for construction workers. This certification ensures that workers are trained in occupational health and safety, which is particularly important in the tree removal industry.

It’s important to ensure that any tree removal company you hire in Canberra, ACT is appropriately licensed and certified to ensure the safety of workers, the public, and your property.
