Council approval

Before pruning, trimming or removing your residential and commercial trees, you must have the necessary approval or your local council. Each council has a unique set of complex Tree Prevention Guidelines, and our friendly arborists can advise you if you need council permission before we start our work.

Things to remember

Mulch is a layer of wood chips that is applied to the surface area of soil. It can be used around your plants, shrubs, trees and garden beds to improve the fertility of your garden and also prepare it for sustenance during the warmer climate.

If you have trees at your residential or commercial premises, there are a few things you must remember, including:

  • You may need your local Council’s approval before you heavily prune or remove any tree
  • Certain trees are protected
  • Prepare your trees before the storm season
  • Incorrect tree lopping or pruning will require more frequent trimming and maintenance, therefore increasing the frequency of visits by your tree lopper and costing you more money

You should also be aware of any person that door-knocks telling you that your tree needs to be removed and check that they are certified and trained in this industry, have insurance and never lop or top trees, as this will harm your tree, causing it to fall in a storm.


I just wanted to pass on my congratulations on a great job. I have watched the tree job up here being done and was most impressed by both the professionalism of the contractors but also the quality of the job they did. Without any undue mess or inconvenience they have done a remarkable job of trimming without it being obvious in the final product. The job of the big tree near Café East was quite remarkable and it now looks so much better, again without the butchered look you often get. Most impressed.

Hi Andrew, I just had to let you know how happy we are with the tree removal job your company did for us a short time ago. We had been putting it off for some time as we thought it was going to cost us much more than your quoted and take 3 times as long as you took! It was with great relief then when you told us how much and had the job done in just over 1 day! We can’t believe the difference it has made and some of our friends have already asked for your phone number, Once again, thanks to you and your crew.

Thanks for such fantastic job and unbelievable clean up! Very impressive. Thanks again. I have already passed on your details on few other friends, if I had a forest to clean it would be yours!

Thank you so much Andy, you did a great job with my trees 😉

Thank you very much for the excellent job you did in our backyard. After the storm we were very concerned that the damaged branches would fall on our roof. Your prompt response to our call was a relief and you and your team did an excellent, rapid and precise job. Thank you again!
