You should always get at least 3 quotes from local tree services before deciding on one. Prices can vary greatly (between 10% and 40%) between tree services, so it always pays to shop around before going ahead.
Yes. There are a couple of reasons for this. The deciduous trees are a little easier to work on as they do not have any leaves. They are lighter and there is less clean up at the end. The biggest reason though is there is a lot less demand for tree services in winter. With an over-supply of companies and a low demand, tree companies will bid lower and lower prices to win the work. This put you in pole position to get some great quotes on your tree job.
You can try, but in most cases the tree service will need to come out and view the job first. Every tree is different and so is the difficulty or ease to remove. A tree contractor will need to take into consideration not only the tree itself, but also the access, location on property and obstacles around the tree. This is impossible to quote from a photo or a description over the phone.
Generally the answer is no. If the tree has fallen in a storm, your home owners insurance will cover it, but if it is healthy and you just want it remove, you are going to be hard pressed to find someone willing to work for free. Tree service companies are expensive to run as they have large overheads with insurance and labour costs. They will need to charge you to do the work to make a living.
This will depend on the council laws on tree removal in your area. Every local council has what’s called a Tree Preservation Order. This outlines the rules regarding tree removal. An example of a rule might be; “If the tree has a trunk circumference of 1.0m or more when measured at 1m above ground level will need a permit for removal.” To see the TPO for your area go here.
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 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.
The cost to remove a gum tree in Brisbane will depend on the size of the tree, the number of branches and how easy it is to access and remove. The average price for a medium-size gum tree removal is $1,750, but the real range starts at $950 for smaller eucalyptus, and goes right up to $4,300 for very large ones.
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 gage 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.
