For an efficient solution to tree removal, our cherry picker is capable of reaching extreme heights to safely eliminate the risk of dangerous trees from falling onto your home.

Removing tree roots after a tree has been felled (or has fallen naturally) can be a time-consuming and expensive business. In addition, root removal can leave a large hole, which many people don’t want on their property. A good alternative is stump grinding. This procedure involves slicing away at the tree trunk until it’s at ground level.

The stump grinder reduces the stump to small chips, which can be composted or which we can remove. Stump grinding reduces the chances of re-growth, as well as smooths out the stump. Over time, the roots will naturally decay.

Over time, many trees have branches or shoots that gradually die back. This may be due to disease, damage or natural wastage. Left unchecked, this deadwood can become unstable, increasing the risk of a sudden branch fall in windy weather.

Summerland Tree Services is able to come out and remove deadwood from almost any tree. This not only makes the tree safer, it also improves tree health and may even promote fresh, vigorous growth.

If you’re looking for a natural weed repellent, aid to irrigation and soil stabiliser, mulch is the perfect choice. Made from small chips of wood, mulch is spread around the base of plants, shrubs or trees to reduce evaporation, prevent the growth of weeds and ensure precious soil isn’t blown or leaches away.

Mulch can also be used on borders, preventing the growth of weeds at the same time as providing an attractive backdrop for your bedding plants. The beauty of mulch is that it’s not only easy to apply, it’s also entirely natural and will decay into the soil over time, adding fibre and nutrients.

Frequently Asked Questions

Tree removal is the process of cutting down a tree and removing it from your property. This may be necessary if the tree is dead, diseased or poses a safety risk to people or property.

Hiring a professional tree removal service ensures the job is done safely and efficiently. Tree removal can be dangerous, especially for larger trees or those in hard-to-reach areas. A professional tree removal team has the equipment and expertise to safely remove trees and debris from your property without causing damage to your home or surrounding structures.

Tree lopping is the process of removing large branches or sections of a tree. This may be necessary if the tree is overgrown or has become a safety hazard. Tree lopping can improve the health and appearance of a tree, but it should only be performed by a trained arborist. Improper tree lopping can damage the tree and cause it to become unstable.

If you are unsure whether your tree needs to be removed or lopped, it is best to consult with a professional arborist. Signs that a tree may need to be removed include extensive rot, large cracks or splits in the trunk or leaning towards your home or other structures. Signs that a tree may need to be lopped include overgrowth, branches touching power lines or branches obstructing views or walkways. Additionally, trees that are blocking sunlight or views may be removed for aesthetic reasons.

In Byron Bay, there are regulations governing tree removal on private property. You may need to obtain a permit from your local council before removing a tree, especially if it is a native species or located in a conservation area. It’s important to consult with a professional arborist and your local council before removing any trees from your property to ensure that you are in compliance with local regulations.

Stump grinding is the process of removing a tree stump by grinding it into small wood chips. This can improve the appearance of your property and prevent new growth from sprouting around the old stump. Stump grinding should only be performed by a professional, as it requires specialised equipment and expertise.

In most cases, you can keep the wood from a tree that has been removed. We can also remove the wood from your property if preferred.

If a tree falls on your property, the first priority is to ensure the safety of yourself and others. If anyone is injured, seek medical attention immediately. Then, contact a professional tree removal service like Summerland Tree Services to assess the damage and remove the fallen tree. If the tree fell due to a storm or other natural disaster, you may also need to contact your insurance company to file a claim.

It’s important to note that every tree is unique, and so is every job. Factors such as tree health, size, location and weather all contribute to the complexity and safety of different tasks. Hence, professional assessment and handling are important for safety.

Before removing a tree, several key factors need to be considered. First, determine if tree removal is required, or whether careful pruning would be enough. Keep in mind local council regulations often require permits for tree removal, especially for established or native trees. We can provide guidance on local council regulations and assist you in obtaining the necessary permits if required. Lastly, consider the impact of tree removal on your landscape. Removing a tree can dramatically change your property’s look and feel, as well as the surrounding ecosystem. Our team can advise on landscaping adjustments to compensate for the removal.

Small trees might take a couple of hours, while larger or more complex jobs can take a full day or more. The time required to remove a tree largely depends on the tree’s size, location, condition and the complexity of the removal process.
