Removing trees can be necessary for many reasons. Whatever the reason, maybe it is essential to have a tree removed safely.
It takes great skill and training to safely and competently remove a tree. This is especially the case when a tree needs to be climbed. Having a team that knows how to dismantle a tree without incident is crucial.
A tree must be removed if it is dead, dying or diseased. Making room for a building or extension, solar panels requiring light, removing weed species to re-establish native species, and structural damage being caused by roots. Retaining a tree, there are many reasons why a tree requires removal.
There are so many factors that need to be taken into account when having a tree removed. For the tree owner, this means what the area may look like when the tree is gone, will shade be lost, groundwater changes, erosion will be caused, will ambience be lost, wind protection may change, and coolness changes, to name a few.
To the tree contractor; is the tree safe to climb, or is a cherry picker/crane required? Are limbs over houses, powerlines, valuable gardens or structures? Can the tree be felled? Does the tree need to be removed by rigging sections with ropes, pulleys and lowering devices?
All these factors mentioned above mean having a competent team is vital, and experience in removing all sizes, types & locations of trees is essential. A team you can trust and have confidence in is paramount. Ask for copies of public liability and proof of work cover for the staff before having any work performed. Have a written and signed quote to know the cost without any surprises.
From Palm trees in a yard to 60-metre Eucalypts over a house, we have never had a tree that can’t be removed. There is always a safe and calculated way a tree can be removed.
There are various reasons a tree may need to be pruned or trimmed. It may be for weight reduction, pruning for views, solar panels and extra light, pruning of hazardous limbs or perhaps just for aesthetics, to name a few.
Whatever the reason, it is often unknown that there are particular ways trees & branches should be pruned for the benefit of the tree. If branches are simply lopped off, this can encourage epicormic growth or stress growth which is weakly attached and will generally lead to increased maintenance and failure. We have and will prune rosebushes with secateurs to limbs 100 feet up a tree the size of power poles. We have and will also use handsaws and secateurs on large trees if a delicate touch is required or there are specific needs for that tree.
Pruning /trimming also involves shrubs and hedges. We have trimmed hedges from 2 meters long to borders 200 meters long. Again we have the equipment required to prune and shape any wall to the customer’s desire.
Our pruning is to Australian Standards (AS 4373 Pruning of Amenity Trees 2007). This ensures the tree can recover and heal over pruned areas and is much more likeable in appearance. All our staff, from groundskeepers to climbers, are trained and certified in pruning to Australian Standards. This is also reiterated by our team attending training days which can cover basic pruning techniques through to advanced pruning techniques.
There is often specific information that may apply to particular tree species, which is essential to know. This information can be from independent research to government research (DPI, ASIO). Keeping up to date with this information gives us an edge and a keen interest in our staff. Feel free to ask our team any questions about tree pruning /trimming.

Stump grinding may be required to remove unwanted obstacles for mowing or to remove food for termites around a house or yard. In the case of grinding for termites, if it is known that there is a termite nest within/under the stump, then it should be treated by a licensed pest controller before grinding. Why? Grinding will create the termites to disperse and locate an alternative nest site/food source; this may be your house! We can organise pest treatments before any grinding to make the process easier.
We have different sizes of machines for various job requirements. If there is poor access (steps only pass through the house or unit etc.), then we have a grinder that can be hand carried. On the opposing end of the scale, we have a machine that can grind enormous stumps. We can perform stump removal for house sites as our large machine will grind out the stump to a depth that goes beyond the rootball size and is generally more affordable than excavation and dumping fees.
Our mid-size stump grinder will fit through a standard 700mm gate. This is an excellent all-around size for a typical residential yard and can get quite close to most structures.
Our plant operators are all qualified to operate the stump grinders, and we have full SWMS (Safe Work Method Statements). We also ensure screens and guards are used to ensure debris doesn’t end up everywhere and provide a safety barrier for people, pets, and property.
Our clean-up is second to none as we rake up, blow off, and ensure the client is happy before leaving the site. Often after a stump is ground out, a mound of soil and mulch is left in its place. This is great for the gardens or, if left as is, will settle over the coming months as the ground has been de-compacted in this area. We can also remove any grindings from the site, backfill the hole with soil and turf the area if required. Just ask, and we can do it.
Our fully qualified Level 5 Arborist can consult, assess, and report on single trees through to larger properties and new developments. With over 20 years of serving The Sunshine Coast, we are trusted to create thorough, useful reports.
Consultancy can involve discussion and inspection on-site, via email or verbal communication. An onsite consultation can be a simple single tree inspection through significant developments, schools and estates.
A consultation will often be the first step to a written report. This can be a single handwritten brief with a detailed description.
Our detailed reports will generally contain tree tables with species and information, pictures, surveys, inspection results, schedule of works and much more. We often perform consultancy and reports for developments to submit to local, state and federal government departments, schools, commercial properties, and parks, to name a few. Tree surveys can also be undertaken on large areas to confirm locations by GPS coordinates and transferred onto site plans.
Consultation and Reports go hand in hand with Tree Health and Safety Assessments. These are often incorporated into reports to determine risk ratings and the overall risk of trees about particular targets.
Risk ratings can be vital to fulfil OH&S requirements for businesses, commercial properties, developments, schools, hospitals etc. Risk ratings can be performed in a basic format or detailed as required. Risk assessments look at the risk a tree poses if the tree or tree part fails and the consequences of that failure on a particular target. A person is the most significant value target; this is where our qualified and experienced consultants can provide sound recommendations on the subject tree(s).
Treesafe Australia’s Consultants perform constant professional development. This comes n the form of training days and seminars, belonging to associations that share training and updates as well as lengthy research, development and on-field experience.
