Efficient, Cost-Effective Tree Removal
Our usual preference is to try and save your trees, but preservation isn’t always the healthiest or most cost-effective option. If we believe a tree removal has become absolutely necessary in order to maintain the integrity of your land, we will act.
Our up-to-date equipment and extensive experience enable us to remove any tree quickly and cleanly—across Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula.
No Hazards or Mess Left Behind
Our climbing arborists can combat tree afflictions at the source by scaling damaged trees with the aid of a secure rigging system. From the crown, we can control the placement and direction of falling limbs, and our professionals can then systematically remove portions of the tree, taking it apart piece by piece.
Once the process is complete, you probably won’t believe we were ever there…save for the missing tree. Controlling the demolition in this way allows us to ensure the protection of your grounds.
We Can Help With
Common Types of Tree Removals
Palm Tree Removals
Palm tree removal is one of the most daunting and difficult tasks for any arborist. Palms grow extensive root systems that cover vast underground areas and take hold differently in varying soils. When it comes to palms, our years of experience really come in handy. Thanks to our expansive knowledge base and our two decades of fieldwork, we have the necessary equipment to remove your palms safely and permanently and prepare them for transferal to another location.
Gum Tree Removals
Gum trees are renowned for their proclivity for destroying property. Random snapping of gum branches can spell disaster in the form of tile, glass or car damage. Gums are also highly susceptible to injury from high winds in both summer and autumn, which is when their branches are most brittle. As gum trees often exceed the boundaries of their intended placement, it’s sometimes safer for both people and their property if the tree is removed (rather than pruned).

"I’ve used other tree companies in the past and were not happy with the way they just trampled the rest of my garden… your guys did an excellent job and know what they are doing when it comes to pruning trees properly. I was so happy I told my friends in the office the next day!"
"We just want to let you know how happy we are with the job you did on our Willow Myrtle. We feel much safer now that you pruned back those heavy branches over the house and the cable system you put in gives us extra confidence. Now we can sleep at night! "

"Just a short note to thank you for the most professional work you and your team have done. To be frank, I had been given a cheaper quote than yours, but I gave you the work because others just fell trees but I believe you really do care. I shall definitely recommend you. "
