In no particular order:
P.S. You need to play the video to see who…
Adelaide Councils are fairly relaxed when it comes to tree removal laws. There is a good chance you can remove your tree without approval.
You will need to fist check the Tree Preservation Order for your local council. If your tree is not considered significant and is not protected you may remove it.
Tree removal and pruning is tricky to quote just by a description. Depending on the size of the tree and difficulty to remove, the price will fluctuate up or down. An on-site inspection is needed to make sure you are given a fair price and the tree service is prepared on the day with the correct machinery.
This is a common question, but your chances are better getting a landscaper in to lay new turf and build a retaining wall free of charge. Tree services are like any other business and charge for their services. They quote and call out will be free, but if you contract them to remove the tree you will need to pay the quote amount.
If your trees has fallen as a result of a storm or any other act of nature, your insurance company will cover it. If the tree is still standing and healthy, you will be hard pressed to convince an insurance company to pay for its removal.
The same is true if the tree has been dead for many years and has just fallen due to negligence. You are expected to upkeep the trees in your yard, so if it has fallen due to neglect, your insurer will most likely not cover the costs for removal.
You may prune any branches that are hanging over your yard from your neighbour’s side, just as long as it is not breaching your councils TPO.
You may remove your neighbour’s tree after they have given you permission and if it does not breach the council TPO.
Because outdoor type services like lawn care, landscaping and tree maintenance is seasonal, prices can fluctuate depending on the workload of the local services.
During winter, especially later winter, tree services are scratching around for work and are much more likely to quote cheaper prices to win your job. If you can hold out, I recommend you get trees removed in the winter.
