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.
Have you got a tree stump that’s slowly rotting in your back garden? Perhaps you don’t want the disruption to your backyard that comes from uprooting a tree completely, but definitely don’t want a stump to start growing shoots. In some situations, it’s just not safe to dig up the roots of a tree when it’s felled, particularly if they’ve penetrated beneath buildings or under other structures.
Stump grinding offers a fast, effective solution. Using a special stump grinding tool, the stump is gradually reduced in size until it’s at ground level, or slightly below. The wood chips from the trunk can be used for mulching, creating paths, or even as a medium for growing mushrooms! Over time, what’s left of the tree after stump grinding will gradually die off naturally.
Expert Wood Chipping
If you have piles of deadwood on your property, perhaps following a storm or a cooler period, why not give us a call to convert it into wood chippings?
Our chipping machine can turn branches of all shapes and sizes into a pile of useful wood chips. If you want to keep them for your garden, once we’ve finished, that’s fine. If you don’t want the chippings, we can take them away for you.
Wood chippings can help your garden in several different ways. First and foremost, the resulting product can be used as mulch. This can be applied to your soil to protect it while still letting moisture through – this does wonders for any other plants on your property. Alternatively, as detailed below, we also directly sell mulch if you do not have any deadwood or tree waste to turn into chippings.
Wood chips can also help to cultivate mushrooms if you want to branch out into mycology, or just feel like adding them to your diet. If you have the space for it, some people even use wood chips to lay down a neat path that inhibits weed growth while providing a good walkway through your garden. There are plenty of ways that your deadwood can be converted into something useful – but again, we are happy to take it off of your hands if that is what you need.
Get in touch with Summerland Tree Services in Byron Bay and we will assist you with your wood chipping needs. Give us a call on (02) 6681 3140 or fill out our contact form and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
We Provide Tree Removal For Insurance Work
For households that need to make an insurance claim for damage caused by a tree, or who need work doing as part of an insurance claim, we can provide the evidence needed for insurers, as well as fill in any necessary technical details regarding the condition of a tree and/or the work required to make it safe or remove it.
When you’ve got trees with dead branches, we’re happy to come out and remove them for you.
Deadwooding helps reduce the risk that your tree will harbour parasites or diseases. In addition, it minimises the risk of branches suddenly falling during high winds.

What Can Affect the Price of Tree Removal?
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.
