Trees add beauty to landscapes, but they also provide shade and help to cool the environment on hot sunny days. Aside from that, trees are home to many different species of insects, birds and other types of creatures. It is because of the many vital benefits that trees can provide that individuals and businesses across Australia are usually not allowed to cut down the trees on their properties without obtaining a tree removal permit.

Some of the circumstances under which a tree removal permit may be granted to you include: (1) when a tree is preventing you from developing your private property; (2) when a tree poses a safety risk to people within the property or in adjacent properties; (3) when there's need to control overcrowding of trees on the property; (4) when a tree is diseased and threatens to spread the disease to healthy trees within the property; and (5) when a tree can damage property.

Once a tree removal permit has been issued, you have to make a choice between doing the job yourself and hiring a specialist to do the job on their behalf. Here are a few points in favour of professional tree removal.

Improved safety: Tree removal can be a dangerous job if performed by people who are not well-aware of the safety hazards involved. A thorough safety risk assessment must be carried out before embarking on the job so as to identify potential safety hazards and to put safeguards in place to manage those hazards. Tree removal specialists know that every job is different and therefore expect to encounter a unique combination of safety issues on the job. They will come to your property to inspect the tree that you need removed and also inspect the work site so as to identify any safety concerns that will need to be dealt with before and during the job. Some of the factors that will be considered is the height of the tree and its proximity to structures on your property and those on adjacent properties.

Faster job completion rate: Tree removal is a disruptive job. It will make your property look messy but can also make it out of bounds for guests. For this reason, you will need to get the job over and done with within the shortest time possible. Hiring pros to work for you is the fastest way to get the job done the right way.
