Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Remove Trees Without a Local Council Permit?

Yes. You don't need a council permit for tree removal Melbourne wide if you want to carry out tree work and remove dead trees. If the tree isn't dead but presents an immediate risk of personal danger or damage to your property, you can remove the part of the tree which is at risk. Often, it is easier and safer to arrange a tree removalist to carry out tree felling in Melbourne.

How do I tell if my tree is sick or dying?

Go out and have a good look at your tree. You'll know your tree is unwell if you see:

  • Severed roots or signs of root decay
  • Peeling or loose bark
  • Deep slits or cracks
  • Swelling or cavities
  • Low-hanging branches with no bark and no leaves
  • Spotty or deformed leaves

If you suspect your tree is sick or dying, call us, and we'll perform an on-site evaluation and suggest any necessary tree service, including tree pruning, tree and tree stump removal service, and other tree services in Melbourne.

What kind of tree diseases or pests should I look out for?

The common diseases and pests which affect your tree's health include:

  • Root rot: Caused by a fungus that affects the roots through the soil. Wilted leaves during warm seasons are a tell-tale sign of root rot.
  • Elm leaf beetles: Prominent in Melbourne, Elm Leaf Beetles eat holes in the leaves of Elm trees. In colder months, this insect will invade house eaves, leaving nasty yellow stains. We specialise in providing Elm Leaf Beetle treatments–ask us about it today.
  • Citrus gall wasp: An insect that lays its eggs in a citrus tree's branches, causing an infection that results in branches swelling and bulging. We'll need to cut the infected branches off straight away.
  • Anthracnose: An umbrella term for a variety of diseases that affect trees in a similar way. Anthracnose is caused by a fungus and can cause discolouration in your tree's foliage.

If you see any of these signs, you should consider contacting tree removalists in Melbourne.

Am I insured while your staff work on my property?

Yes. We are fully insured for any tree lopping service in Melbourne, with public liability cover for up to $20 million–so no matter which team member completes your job, they are completely covered for damages. If you’re arranging expert tree removal in Melbourne or tree cutting in Melbourne, we advise you always check that the company providing professional arborist services has full public liability cover.
