Our team brings extensive experience and comprehensive solutions to the table for each and every client. However, we recommend educating yourself on the Byron Shire website if you are thinking of lodging an application for development approval. Similarly, we recommend checking the laws even for something as simple as pruning and lopping.
You can receive significant fines for carrying out tree work without approval from the local council. Even with permission, you’ll need to hire a licensed team, as the work can be quite dangerous.

We try not to remove a healthy tree unless there is a pressing reason to do so. In most cases, problems such as overhanging branches or excessive growth can be resolved through lopping and pruning. We offer a range of tree removal and trimming techniques, which can be used to reduce the size of the tree, alter its shape, or treat dead or diseased branches.
If required, we can also remove the timber from your property, or mulch it for you to use in your garden.
There is a myriad of factors that can affect how complex tree removal is, and therefore the final price of the job at hand. At Summerland Tree Services, we work at an hourly rate with set quotes, but it’s still important to know how long a tree removal might take. As you can probably guess, a bigger tree would typically mean more power is needed to help cut it and its many branches down. Even with the relevant equipment, this can take longer than it would for a smaller tree.
Tree Removal Location
Location is another highly important part of the equation and must always be considered. If it’s in a position where chopped branches can easily drop to the ground with little fuss, then the job will go by much quicker. If the branches are right above your house or any other sensitive location, however, it would not be safe to do this, and debris must be cleared differently. This typically takes more time, potentially adding another hour to the job depending on how well it goes.
Type of Tree being Removed
Because of the above and more, you will always need to provide as much detail about the tree and its location for an accurate quote. We need to know just how complex the removal is so we can be prepared for it and deliver the best and most cost-effective outcome. Call us on (02) 6681 3140 and let us know as much as you can about the tree that needs removing. We will then provide you with a quote that matches the time it will take to deal with the project.
Yes. Our Byron Bay arborists work at an hourly and day rate. We can also provide firm quotes. Many of our clients choose to go with fixed quotes.
There are many hazards you should check on your trees. Some include loose limbs, rotting or severed roots, fungal attacks, physical injury to the trunk, increased wind and sunlight exposure and more. If you are concerned about a tree on your property, it’s important to book an assessment from a licensed arborist.
Regular trimming, pruning, mulching and lopping will help keep your tree happy and healthy. Similarly, adequate irrigation and drainage will ensure the right supply of water to the root zone. From here, it’s important to continue monitoring for risks and decline in health. If your tree is stressed, it may be more prone to diseases and pests, reducing their overall health.
Arborists specialise in looking after trees, with all the required training to handle tree work like lopping, felling and the treatment of arboreal diseases. In many cases, you will also be legally required to use an arborist for completion of tree management and care. Arborists can also complete risks assessments in the case of hazardous trees.
First an arborist will assess the damage caused by fallen trees and limbs. From there, they will take necessary safety precautions and eliminate risks in order of severity. Do not attempt to complete arboreal work yourself. It is illegal and fraught with many dangers.
Removing a tree or pruning without a permit may result in hefty fines. You may be required to lodge a Development Application form to inform Byron Council of your tree removal or pruning plans. We’ve provided all the necessary info you need to know on our TPOs & DAs page.
Yes, we do. If your Byron Bay property has been damaged by a storm, call our experienced team as soon as possible so we can assess the damage. Our storm crew is on hand day and night to help local clients.
