Tree & yard services in the Southern Highlands
Land clearing is the removal of vegetation from a site in preparation for construction. When planning to clear land, it’s important to consider any protected trees or plant species that could possibly need council permission to be removed.
Using our excavators, we can quickly and efficiently clear your land, keeping in line with all council requirements. We will also remove all green waste, leaving your site clear.
We can clear a whole or partial site to allow for the erection of sheds, fencing, houses or the development of commercial properties.
Our experienced tree loppers are more than qualified to remove dangerous and potentially hazardous trees from your property. Fallen trees or broken branches pose a danger in extreme weather conditions, so removing them will ensure the safety of your family, home and business.
We have access to the right equipment to get the job done. Cherry pickers, tilt tray tippers and woodchippers allow us to not only cut down the tree but remove it from your property—even if it’s in a limited-access space.
In some areas, you need council approval to remove certain trees. The requirements vary between each regional council, so it can be hard to know what’s the right thing to do. We’ll help you to identify whether or not you need a permit, and even help with the application process.
If you’ve had a tree removed previously, or a tree has come down in a storm, we’re able to help level out your property again.
We use specialised grinders to wear the stump down and chip it into fine mulch. This can then be spread over your garden to promote fresh growth and recycle your unwanted wood.
Grinding a stump leaves flat ground that can be replanted, mulched, or paved over, so you can claim back the use of your space. Removing a stump in this way will also ensure there aren’t any tripping hazards in yards or gardens.
Pruning & Slashing
Pruning and slashing trees is done for a variety of reasons, such as encouraging growth, flowering or fruit production around your home.
In addition to improving the health of the tree, pruning is often done for aesthetic reasons. This includes raising the level of the canopy for more headroom, or even sculpting bushes into 3D shapes.
Removing dead or dying branches will also minimise fire hazards around your home, which is particularly important throughout the warmer months. It also thins the tree to prevent easily broken branches coming lose during storms and becoming a projectile.
