Does tree stump removal cost extra?
Normally when you request a quote for tree removal Adelaide, you are paying extra for the stump to be removed.

There are budget tree stump removal companies, but I would not have the job done separately. If you are getting the tree removed, you are best getting the stump removal done at the same time.

Most tree care services are pretty quiet in winter, so you will find they are more than willing to slash prices just to win a job.
Waiting for the off season can save you upwards of 25% of the price of tree removal all over Adelaide.
Clear a path for better access

It’s all about time. Time to get the tree cut down on the ground and loaded 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 on tree removal.
Sell the timber as firewood
Ask you friendly Adelaide tree lopper 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.
One complete and you have a pile of firewood, take a photo and auction off on eBay. People will pay through the nose for great hardwood and they will be more than happy to come and do the labor to come and pick it up.
It’s a win-win.

P.S. You need to play the video to see who…
You don’t always need approval from the council, on trees that are protected. You will need to check the specific rules for protected trees in your local council area here, but in most cases, the tree has to have a trunk diameter of 1.0m or greater when measured at breast height.
The problem is one trees are very hard to quote from a description and photo’s can be deceiving. Telling a tree removal service in Adelaide you have a “large tree” with ”good” access means it could cost anywhere from $550 to $7000. For the company to give you an accurate price, they really do need to come and inspect the tree and the access for removal.
I get this question quite a bit and the answer is usually no. A lot of people assume a tree removal service will remove a tree for the firewood. We need to remember it is firewood and not silver or gold. The timber needs to be dried for 2 years, split and delivered. The profit margin on firewood is minimal even if it is a free byproduct of tree removal Lots of time and man hours go into preparing and delivering it to the final customer. You will need to pay for your tree to be removed.
There are some cases where your home insurance will cover tree removal. This is normally when the tree has fallen in a storm or other natural disaster. They will not pay for the removal of a healthy tree. Also, it is worth mentioning that insurance companies pay for the removal of trees, but never the stump.
You are legally withing your rights to prune your neighbours tree if it is encroaching on your property. You will need to check that the tree or trees are not protected by tree preservation laws in your local council area. Go here to see the local rules.
Tree removal is normally 20% cheaper in winter on average. As there are less people in their yards in the winter, industries like lawn care, landscaping and tree services all take a hit. This means you will have more companies dropping prices to compete. If you can, save your job for winter.
