Tree Removal & Tree Lopping


Choosing to remove a tree, can be a tough decision, but sometimes it’s needed to protect your property, family and your wallet. If left, an unsafe tree can become a hazard and could cause huge amounts of damage if it falls.

Storm damaged trees can also sometimes get entangled in power lines, encroach on houses, or lean over public walkways.

North Brisbane Trees will only remove a tree if it’s absolutely necessary. The first approach is to try and save the tree, if we think it has a chance and won’t be too costly to maintain.

Brisbane Tree Removal Done Right, the First Time

Care and attention is needed when removing a tree. The stump needs to be fully removed, so it doesn’t cause a trip hazard, or become a home for pests later on. And care needs to be taken to ensure the safety of people and property nearby. You can be rest assured, the team at North Brisbane Trees will get the job done fast, safely and right the first time. The tree removal process goes like this:

Dying Tree

Check with the Local Council

Before a tree can be removed, you need to check if the tree is protected by local council regulations. If not, we can get started making a plan to remove your tree in the best way.

Survey the Area and Make a Plan

Our tree removal services include a planning and preparation stage. We survey the area for potential hazards and decide how we will cut down the tree. While some can be taken down in one go, others need a step by step approach.

Remove the Tree Safely

Once we have a plan, we get the job done efficiently and safely. Our qualified arborists know how to handle the tree removal process while keeping people and property safe.

Stump Grinding and Clean Up

After the tree has been felled, we clean up after ourselves. We even turn the excess wood into mulch and firewood. Stump grinding is the process of removing the last traces of the stump, freeing up your garden space and clearing away any potential trip hazard.

Tree Lopping Brisbane

Tree lopping is the process of removing branches and parts of the canopy from a tree. Sometime a tree doesn’t need to be removed and can be saved by removing dangerous parts. For example, when a tree has been hit by lightning, it may only need a few hanging branches removed.

Tree lopping must be performed by a trained professional. This is because, if the wrong parts of a tree are removed, this can cause further damage or make the tree completely die off. Our expert Brisbane arborists can advise on whether tree lopping or tree removal is right for you.

Benefits of Professional Tree Lopping

Tree lopping is similar to tree pruning, although done on a larger scale. It involves the arborist making vertical cuts to branches, removing dead and unsafe branches. The three main benefits include:

  • Safety. Tree lopping is a way to make a hazardous tree safe. Dead branches are removed that could pose a threat to people or property, allowing new, healthy branches to grow.
  • Health. Decaying branches are removed so the rest of the tree doesn’t get infected. If left, disease can spread, killing the tree off.
  • Appearance. Lastly, tree lopping is a way to improve the appearance of a tree. As the tree grows, it may grow at strange angles or become too heavy on top. Your arborist will remove excess weight, making the tree look better and grow better.
