What do tree surgeon services include?

From supplying oxygen to absorbing rainwater, trees offer countless benefits. But it’s always a two-way relationship—trees can’t give us what we need when they’re sick or worse, dead. 


Good thing there’s a pool of tree surgeons in Airtasker who can do the dirty work and handle dangerous processes for us. The tree size, condition, species and location help the expert on reaching the right solution. Expect them to do pruning, lopping, trimming, and more. Specialists in tree maintenance near you perform these tasks by sophisticated climbing at great heights and rigging techniques. 


Keeping your landscape in good shape by exploring these services:


Tree felling and removal

Diseased, dead, or unsafe? If your trees meet the criteria, felling is the way to go. The process involves cutting the trees down to prevent diseases from spreading to surrounding trees, moreover boosting safety in the area. Some clients also request tree felling for aesthetic purposes.


Meanwhile, tree removal means the roots, stumps, fallen branches, and the entire tree get removed.


Felling or removing a tree is a dangerous task involving specialised equipment, so it’s a must to hire a knowledgeable tree surgeon for this. For extra peace of mind, you can also book an arborist to work side-by-side with your tree surgeon, as they are trained to diagnose trees and recommend safe solutions.


Tree pruning, cutting, lopping or trimming

If diseased or dead wood is present, the tree surgeon will need to remove them, which is what pruning is about. It also boosts the growth of fruit and flower buds.


Meanwhile, tree lopping or trimming effectively modifies a tree’s shape. This is done by cutting branches and training them to grow in a specific direction. It is often focused on aesthetics. If this is not properly maintained, branches can become unwieldy, growing in various directions.


Your Tasker may also do crown thinning on a tree. This consists of removing select branches to increase light penetration and reduce crown weight. 


Overall, pruning, lopping, and cutting stimulate and control growth in trees.


  • Stump removal

A tree surgeon near you can also grind down and remove unsightly or bulky stumps. This process may demand a specialised stump grinding machine, which can completely destroy the tree’s stump and root system.


  • Tree pollarding

Have you ever encountered the term “lollipop trees”? They are the result of pollarding with the purpose of aesthetics. 


Apart from that, though, tree pollarding keeps a tree from outgrowing its bounds on a private landscape, or even encroaching electrical wires. Whether placed in streets, parks, or small spaces, trees can be compact. Once you pollard a tree, you’ll have to repeat the process every year or two throughout the tree’s life. This means you may need constant landscaping or gardening maintenance.

Stump grinding and/or stump removal

$350

Dutton Park QLD, Australia

13th Jun 2024

Urgent stump grinding (or entire stump removal if possible). I have a solid fig tree stump that needs to at least be levelled to the red line in the photo, and ground back within the circled area to make way for a fence. If you can grind it back further or remove it altogether, even better. It’s a solid stump and has concrete near and under it, so requires some precision. A few have had a go but came up against concrete etc., which has now mostly been removed to ease access. Need this done asap so other work can proceed. Will probably require a mix of chainsaw and stump grinding or whatever effective tool you have in your arsenal. Flexible on price if you can guarantee it’ll get done.

Remove tree branches - Chipper needed

$350

Moorooka QLD, Australia

30th Apr 2024

I need someone to remove tree branches from my yard. There are some pretty big ones, you’ll definitely need a large chipper. I don’t believe they can be taken to the dump as is. Some branches are over 5m long and would need more cutting to be loaded onto a trailer. Easy access to the backyard

I highly recommend Aaron, great guy and super efficient.

Two trees in my townhouse courtyard require pruning. The branches are not very thick. I'd like the branches removed to be cut into lengths I can dispose of in a commercial bin. I estimate the job would take about 30 mins.

Prompt, friendly & job done as requested.

Dispose of large stump (already removed)

Cannon Hill QLD, Australia

17th Apr 2024

Dispose of a large stump that has already been removed from the ground. It is about 1.5m long, 1m wide and 0.6m tall. It’s is very heavy and quite hard (have tried to chainsaw). Will need winch/ bobcat/ excavator /similar to remove. Might be able to be cut with bigger chainsaw or stump grinder but not sure. Good access to it.

Shaun did a great job of removing our very large stump - did the job straight away (same day) and quickly & well. Thanks!
