Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of insurance do you have?

We hold a WorkCover Insurance policy in accordance with the Workplace Injury Rehabilitation and Compensation Act  2013 (and amendments).

We also have General & Products Liability Insurance which covers any potential third party damage. This means both our workers, and your site, are fully insured should anything go wrong during a job.

Do you work with council permits?

Yes. We have intimate knowledge of obtaining council permits. We understand each council within Melbourne has a set of regulations for which trees can be removed and pruned. Drawing on our considerable horticultural and arboricultural knowledge, we can identify tree species which fall within these regulations and consult you for further action.

Do you respond to emergency call-outs?

Yes. We are quick and responsive to emergency call-outs. If someone reports an issue of a fallen or dangerous tree, we can attend the site and ensure the tree is no longer an immediate threat to the public. We'll give you a quote, and we can return and take appropriate action for the tree at an arranged time.

Are your arborist reports certified?

Our team of arborists hold the appropriate certificates in arboriculture to provide comprehensive arborist reports following the relevant Australian Standard. We'll conduct ground and aerial inspections to assess the site and perform a Hazard and Risk Assessment of your trees.

What is the cost of tree removal on council land?

The cost of your tree removal will vary depending on where it is located, how easy it is for us to access, its size and several other factors. If you would like a free tree inspection, contact us today, and we can give you a more detailed quote.

Do you also offer services for trees on private property?

Trav's Trees offer residential and commercial services for pruning and removing trees and a wide variety of tree services, from cable bracing to arborist reports. We find it helpful to work in both private and public sectors as sometimes private trees fall on council land and vice versa. 

Being well-versed in the current regulations and laws protecting trees on both public and private land allows us to provide you with superior service and help with all your tree care concerns.

Will you ground or completely remove the tree roots when you remove a tree stump?

We often recommend stump grinding when we remove a tree as we believe it provides the best results with the least disruption to the surrounding vegetation and wildlife. If you would like to discuss tree removal in your local council or government area, please contact our friendly team to arrange a free site inspection and quote.
