Tree Removal in Perth for less
Updated: 24 February 2020
Tree removal in Perth can be expensive. The average cost of tree removal last year was $1,250, with the real range more like $250 to $4,300.
The cost does not just depend on the size of the tree, access, time of year and which tree services you get prices off have a huge baring.
Follow a few simple steps below and you’ll be able to get the work done for far less.
What most people do is either an internet search, or look in the local paper for a local tree service.
They choose three random companies and call them up and invite them out to quote the job.
Once they have their quotes, they will choose the cheapest one and book the successful tree service in.
Problem: Companies at the top of search results are spending lots of money to be seen first. Because they spend so much marketing to be at the top of yellow page, Google, True Local and Yelp, they also need to charge more and pass those costs onto the customer.
Saving Trick #1: Go to pages 2 and 3 of Google results. These companies are just as good as the ones on page 1, but don’t spend so much on marketing. They will give a cheaper price.
What should tree lopping in Perth cost?
Tree removal in Perth costs $350 – $3900. They average city wide price is $1670. (2018 average). This price does not include stump grinding. You will typically pay another $200 – $390 on top depending on the size of the stump.
As you can see the price is pretty broad. Trees come in all shapes and sizes and no one tree removal job is the same.
The above price should give you an idea though. For more cost information on Perth tree removal, take a look at the comprehensive tree removal cost guide here were we look at tree removal by tree height, access, and location on property.
Pricing tree pruning or removal isn’t something you can really do over the phone or with a picture. It can be even more challenging trying to price your job in an article without even seeing the tree in question. We do give you a pretty good ball park figure to go off though.
But the end of the day, you will need to bite the bullet at some point and get local tree services out to view the job and give a firm price.
There is just no other way to go about it.
WHEN is tree removal cheap
Outdoor services like lawn care, landscaping and tree removal are all seasonal. There is a lot less work on in the cooler months than in spring and summer.
The reason is less people are in their yards, entertaining and even thinking about these types of services.
Supply an demand: When there is more demand then the supply of tree service can keep up with, they will charge higher prices. This is normally done when they have 3 – 4 weeks worth of work booked in advance. They literally don’t need your work so will start naming their price.
Saving trick #2: Hire int eh winter months. When there is little work on, they supply/ demand paradigm shifts in your favor with tree services short on work they are falling over each other to win your work. Prices always fall. Just like booking a hotel in the off season, you can expect to save 20% minimum.

The cost to cut down and remove a tree in Perth will depend largely on the size of the tree and it’s location on your property. The average cost of tree removal in Perth is $1,250, but the real range is between $250 and $4,300. You are best getting some prices from local tree services or having a look at our in-depth cost guide here.
This will depend on what council you live under and the tree removal laws that apply. Most states have laws that allow you to remove trees that are in high risk fire zones. Please refer to this guide to see if this applies to you. Also, you will need to look at your local council laws. Permits might be required before any tree removal takes place.
There are a few things you need to look for when selecting a tree service to remove your tree. Firstly when doing an internet search you need to have a look at their reviews. If they have too many 1 and 2 star reviews, you need to keep looking. Next you need to do a background check. Go to ABN lookup and type in their company name. Have a look to see how long they have been in business and whether they have changed their trading name recently. When they are out quoting your job you need to ask for an arborist certificate and insurance details.
This will depend on the size of the tree being removed. The best way to gauge whether you are getting a good price, is to get more than 1 quote. A good number of quotes is 3, but there is nothing wrong with getting 4 or 5 quotes for very large jobs.
Insurance companies will cover the cost of tree removal if the tree came down in a storm or any other act of nature. They will not cover the removal of a healthy just because you want to cut it down. They will also not cover the removal of a dead tree (died years ago) that finally fell after years of neglect.
In most cases no. If your tree came down in a storm, you may get your insurance company to foot the bill. If you are a tenant of a property you can ask your landlord if they would mind paying, but I’m sure it would depend on the circumstances. There are programs available such as small government grants for pensioners who need to remove a tree but do not have the funds. You will need to speak to your local council or state government pension office about the details.
Trees are very difficult to price from a picture or a description over the phone. The reason is the difficulty and time take to remove a tree can only be assessed when taking into account the access to the property, obstacles around the tree and the shape and size of the tree itself. All of which is difficult to describe over the phone. Tree services will need to book in a time to view the job to give you a firm quote.
If your tree is protected due to its size or if you live in one of the state’s vegetation protection overlays then you will need to apply for a council permit to remove the tree. To know whether your tree is protected, please refer to your local councils Tree Preservation Order for more information.
If the council feels you do not have sufficient grounds to remove the tree they may decide that it should stay. You can then get an arborist report from an independent arborist. If the arborist inspection finds the tree is dangerous, you can then resubmit your application for review. If the tree is protected and healthy, the likelihood of getting approval for removal is slim.
If the tree is question is on council property, they will come out and prune any branches that are encroaching on your property. If the tree is on your property however, you will need to foot the bill. All trees on your property are the responsibility of the owner to maintain.
Most of the time, you will only need to give the tree company access to your yard to do the job. You will not need to be present while the tree is being removed. Arrangements can be made for payment after you have returned home and inspected the finished job.
Stump removal is normally priced separately. If you have a quote for a tree to be removed, make sure they have specify whether that price includes the removal of the stump. If it does not, they may try to get away with charging you an extra fee for removal. This is a dirty trick, but can be easily avoided if you have it written on the quote exactly what is included in the price.
