What does a tree removal service include?

Tree removalists are experienced in a range of services relating to removing and maintaining trees. Services they can help with include:

Tree removal

Need gum tree removal, palm tree removal, or another type of tree moved or removed? Tree removal is often considered a last resort in tree maintenance, and will usually only be done if other maintenance options aren’t suitable. A tree may need to be removed if it’s causing safety concerns, is diseased or dying, or causing damage to structures or underground pipes on your property. Your tree removalist may use a truck, a cherry picker, ladders, chainsaws, and even experienced tree climbers to help take the tree down and remove it from your yard.

Tree lopping

Tree lopping removes parts of a tree rather than removing the whole tree. In some cases, there may be large sections of the tree that have been damaged in a storm or bad weather. Or perhaps the tree is growing in a way that will obstruct power lines and other services. Most tree loppers will use a ladder, a chainsaw, and a pruning saw to remove the parts needed, before mulching or removing the leaves and branches. Note that it’s important to seek specialist advice and only hire an experienced tree lopper as incorrect tree lopping can cause an otherwise healthy tree to die. 

Pruning and maintenance

Gum trees and eucalyptus trees, as well as other tall trees often need pruning and maintenance to ensure they remain at a manageable and safe height. When they’re getting close to roofs and gutters (but especially power lines), it’s time to engage an expert to trim them. Trimming is also important to remove any diseased or dying branches to make sure they don’t fall and cause injury. Depending on the tree and branch size, your tree pruner will use either an electric chainsaw or a pruning saw, along with secateurs to trim back branches.

Stump grinding

Stump grinding is often required after a tree is removed to fully extract the stump or grind it lower than ground level. Your specialist will clear the area and move their stump grinding equipment into place before using the stump grinding blade to gradually bring the stump back below ground level. They’ll then cover it with soil. This is to ensure the tree won’t reshoot and grass can grow over it. Leaving a tree stump in the ground or untouched can attract termites and other pests. Plus, it will always sit in the way of landscaping attempts or leisure activities in your backyard.

Remove tree branches


Clarence Park SA 5034, Australia

29th Nov 2022

The storms have broken off a few branches high in our Chinese elm tree, but they are stuck in the tree, rather than falling all the way to the ground.. Probably about nine or 10 m up. There’s also a large dead branch that was already lodged up there. You will need a tall ladder/chainsaw/the climbing ability of an agile monkey, to remove the broken branches, cut them up, and then remove all pieces and debris from the property please. Good access via the drive and garage through to the backyard where the tree is located. Very flexible on time, but ASAP would be great. - Due date: Flexible

Sean did an absolutely outstanding job. Communicated clearly about arrival times and discussed the job thoroughly before beginning. He clearly cares about trees and the best possible way to maintain them. Brought all equipment necessary. Sean cleared the mess of branches and debris and removed it all, leaving our yard looking immaculate. Friendly, honest and hard-working, we highly recommend Sean and wouldn’t hesitate to use the services again.
