Q. DO I NEED A COUNCIL PERMIT TO REMOVE OR PRUNE A TREE?
Local government areas each have their own regulations for tree removal and tree pruning. Whether you need a tree removal permit will depend on the size and type of the tree and where you live.
Contact your local Council for more information. Click on the link below for a list of Sydney Councils direct link.
Q. DO I NEED TO BE ON SITE FOR YOU TO QUOTE?
It will make it much easier to provide you with an accurate quotation if you are present to discuss your needs at the time we visit your property. That will also give you the opportunity to have answers to all your concerned questions. However we can still quote for your job if you not there providing you allow access to where the job is located.
Q. CAN I GET A QUOTE OVER THE PHONE?
In most cases this can be possible providing you give us a detailed information about the Tree. You can email us some photos of the tree to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to give you a quote, however in saying that some jobs are more complex for this procedure. Give us a call to discuss.
Q. WHAT INSURANCES SHOULD A TREE LOPPING BUSINESS HAVE?
Any tree lopping business should provide a current workers compensation insurance policy for their employees and they should hold a current public liability insurance policy.
These insurance policies provide protection for you an the case of damage caused to properties and will also protect workers on site.
