Ben from Shane’s Trees quoted the job on wed. I needed it done on Friday when my wife was off work. The team turned up on time. Swung around my tree like monkeys and cleaned our place up like the in-laws we’re coming for dinner. Professional, well priced, honest and reliable. Very surprised as I have had to deal with so many average tradesmen in my life. 3 months ago

I was very impressed with the efficiency and professionalism of this company. Our strata-titled property had some tall timbers lopped and all care was taken and the cleanup was outstanding with raking and blower vac, and mulching. Well done gentlemen! 4 months ago
A 20m tree was removed from among my garden plants in July 2019. The job was done quickly. The garden was treated with care and completely undamaged. The clean up afterwards was excellent. I observed the work being carried out and it revealed great professionals at work. And the price quoted was the best. Go with this Team. 5 months ago

Tree Pruning Guidelines in Sydney NSW

This is a preferred method for many councils as it saves the need to fully remove the tree and is more environmentally friendly.  For you as the homeowner, Tree Pruning is also welcome it saves costs on a complete tree removal.

As with any type of arborcultural projects, you require permission to carry out most Tree Pruning, Tree Removal or Branch Removal tasks. City of Sydney Council does provide some exceptions where you can carryout pruning work without approval including the following:

  • You are not removing anymore than 5% of the tree canopy
  • pruning does not affect the health or structural stability of the tree
