Top Tree Lopper related questions

Tree loppers aren’t usually required to hold any credentials or expertise, while arborists are trained to climb and trim trees safely. Arborists specialise in tree health and can do more for your trees than trim their branches. Usually, arborists are required to hold a licence. If you’d rather seek an arborist or tree surgeon, you can book one via Airtasker.
You can find the best tree loppers near you by putting up a tree lopping task on Airtasker. Our platform connects you to nearby and available tree loppers who can cut off your tree’s overgrown branches quickly, conveniently, and without breaking the bank. You can also find Taskers who can take on other gardening-related jobs, such as yard work or lawn care.
This depends on your location - in countries like Australia, tree loppers don’t need a licence, whereas the UK requires property owners to apply for a felling licence before removing trees. As for insurance, Airtasker’s tree loppers are covered by our third-party liability policy. Since lopping is merely removing the branches without checking on the tree’s health, most tree loppers don’t hold a licence. But, arborists check on your tree before anything else, and this requires years of training and a licence.
Your tree lopper service consists of cutting the side branches of a tree. Some may be able to accommodate cutting the top branches, too (this is known as tree topping). Just specify this when you request a Tasker so that you can get a more accurate quote.If you’d like to cut the roots of a tree safely, consider consulting a tree surgeon or arborist near you instead.
To start working with long-handled or electric tree loppers, make sure you use sturdy work gloves and goggles. Line the blade up to the cutting site, and open the loppers all the way to get the branch deep into the blade. When the wood is positioned correctly, cut it in one fluid motion. Avoid snipping or letting the loppers twist as you cut. For a faster and safer tree lopping job, consider requesting a Tasker near you instead.
Tree pruning deals with tree health, while tree lopping is simply about reducing a tree’s size. They use different tools and have different time frames, too. For example, tree pruning uses loppers (ironically) and hand shears. Tree pruning is done annually. Tree lopping, on the other hand, uses either manual, electric, or gas-powered shears and clippers. It is usually done twice a year or as necessary - like if a tree starts to grow beyond your property line.

What do tree lopper services include?

When you book a tree lopper service on Airtasker, you get the complete package, with all the trimmings. We make tree lopping safe and convenient for you - no need to run to the store to buy shears, or bring out your ladder from the tool shed. Just point out what trees need to be lopped and how or why they should be cut (e.g. to stop a branch from hitting a window, to let more light shine on a spot in your garden). Then, let your Tasker get right to it! 

While the specifics may vary depending on the Tasker you book, here’s what you can expect when you request a tree lopping service on Airtasker:

Assessment before tree lopping

First, the Tasker assesses the tree and the surrounding area. They figure out how best to cut the tree to solve the problem at hand - say, the tree’s branches may fall on pedestrians, or the tree’s foliage is weighing down your roof. Since lopping isn’t as technical as pruning, your Tasker will only be concerned about cutting the tree to the right size. 

If you’re worried about your tree’s health after the trimming, you may want to consult with a tree surgeon or arborist instead.

Tree lopping tools

Once the assessment is done, the Tasker brings out the lopping tools. This can include long-handled or electric tree loppers, googles, and gloves. Taskers typically bring their gear, but you can ask them to use your own if you already have the right shears lying around.

Strategic branch trimming

Next, the Tasker cuts each branch strategically to solve your tree-related problem. Make sure everyone stays clear of the area to avoid any accidents. Once the lopping is done, the Tasker asks you to check on the tree and its surroundings. When you’re happy with the result, your Tasker packs up their gear and goes on their way.

Some tree loppers may also clear the cut branches out after they work, but some may not include this as part of their services. For situations like this, you can book a yard work expert afterwards to clear up the mess for you. Airtasker also offers other services to help you get that picture-perfect garden, such as lawn care and tree maintenance.

Gardener/Handyperson for tree lopping, and weeding


Brighton VIC 3186, Australia

25th Sep 2022

Task 1. We are seeking a gardener or handyperson to finish lopping a yucca tree that we have in our backyard (see photos). It will likely need a chainsaw - we have done most of the work with hand saws but it is now too thick and access is an issue (saw strokes) so a chain saw should be able to take it out in a few sections we believe. Task 2. We also need our side passage tidied up - remove all grass and weeds and be levelled off (to prepare for artificial grass to be fitted). There is a current bed of rocks and pavers but we dont need them kept so they can go too. (See photos). Task 3. Ideally you can also dispose of our greenwaste from our previous maintenance (see photos) plus any green waste you make. Please quote based on Tasks 1 and 2. We will be happy to negotiate the additional charge for Task 3 if you include this as an option in your response.
