Rules and regulations for tree removal and pruning differ from council to council. We've completed council permit applications before and can help you get started. Call us, and we'll look up the location of your site to determine whether you will need a council permit.
Call us, and we'll come to your site to ensure the tree is safe and poses no immediate risk. We'll give you a quote and then arrange a time to come back and complete a thorough service.
With a little routine tree maintenance, you can minimise the risk of trees falling or branches breaking. We can conduct a full arborist report and assess which trees may pose a risk in the future. We can assess your trees for signs of disease, root decay, or pest infestations–all of which can erode the plant's structural integrity. We'll look at the branches of trees to see whether they may need cable bracing for extra support, and we can install possum guards if the furry critters are damaging the trees.
We haven't had an accident yet. But if something does happen, we hold a WorkCover Insurance policy for our staff and an extensive Combined General & Products Liability Insurance policy of up to $20 million.
A detailed arborist report can be provided for one tree or an area of your school. Arborist reports will include details of the tree or trees' health, vigour, amenity value, and Safe, Useful Life Expectancy (SULE).
To ensure the safety of students, staff and visitors to your school, an annual health and safety risk analysis is required by the Department of Education. Trav’s Trees can provide you with all the required documentation and a thorough assessment of the trees in your school.
Please provide your contact details and full address so we can book your quote.
