Finding a great priced tree lopper near me
The trick to finding a tree expert in Adelaide from the Adelaide hills to the Northern suburbs is firstly knowing where to look.
Avoid tree companies at the top of Google search, top of Yellow pages and other search engines.
Why? Because they are not at the very top by accident, they are all paying a lot of money to be at the top so you call them first. Because of their inflated marketing budget, they have a lot more overheads for the month and generally (not always) charge more.
These Adelaide companies tend to have a higher turnover of enquiries, and a smaller hit rate of jobs, but because they charge more they actually end up making a lot more money.
It’s not a scam, just a different business model.
4 quick tips for MASSIVE savings
Although the contractor is the first hurdle in getting a good price on Adelaide tree removal, there are a few more really important things you need to consider.
This is where the power shifts into your control and you are no longer at the whim of what the tree service wants to charge
Clear a path for better access
Listen up, because this is bigger than you think!
A tree in a back yard can cost DOUBLE the price then for the same size tree in a front yard.
It’s all about time. Time to get the tree on the ground and in the mulching machine.
Allowing your Adelaide tree service great access, especially if the tree is in a hard to get to spot in your yard is critical in securing a good deal.
If they know they can get all their equipment nice and close, you are saving time in having to drag tree branches out to their truck manually. You will be rewarded with a cheaper price.
You need to tell them you will be removing a panel of fencing, or all the outdoor furniture during the quoting process. Then they know to quote you less.
Time of year matters
Getting a tree remove in Autumn or winter in Adelaide can save you 30%.
Most tree service companies are pretty quiet in the off season (anywhere from late summer to early spring) you will find they are more than willing to slash prices just to win a job and keep busy through the cooler months.
Waiting for the off season can save you upwards of 25% of the price of tree removal all over Adelaide.
Sell the waste
Tell your friendly tree lopper you would prefer to keep the timber for fire wood.
Ask them for 2 prices, one to completely remove the tree and another to remove the tree and leave the timber for firewood.
You will find the second option will always be cheaper. Not only that, but you can profit on the timber by selling it on eBay to an Adelaide local. You won’t have to lift a finger.
Just take a photo of your fire logs and start an auction on eBay. People will pay through the nose for great hardwood and they will be more than happy to come and do the labour to come and pick it up.
It’s a win-win.

Public liability insurance
All tree removal companies need to the correct insurance cover before walking on site to begin work.
Any company we recommend is fully covered for a minimum of 10 million in public liability insurance.
It is always a good idea to ring the insurance company to make sure their cover note is still valid, just in case something goes wrong during your tree removal.
Experience of 3 years min.
In your search engine go to ABN Lookup, and type in the company name tree service.
There you can see how long they have been in business, whether they have folded in the past and basically get a good idea if they are legitimate or not.
Look at the registered date of their business and made sure they have been in the game for a minimum of 3 years.
This is long enough to have acquired the experience needed to tackle any situation. You certainly don’t want a hack “practicing” on your tree on your property.
If they don’t have the experience, we don’t recommend them.
