“We were very impressed by Shane’s Trees. We have a difficult site so no cherry pickers could be used. The work was performed skilfully and promptly. Clean up was excellent. Communication was excellent and they fitted our awful (my opinion) job in before Xmas.”
-Janet. S
“I have a large London Plane Tree in my small yard that cannot be removed. I contacted Shane’s Trees for a quote to allow a council-permitted trim. I am extremely satisfied with all aspects of the process – the quote was provided in a short period of time, and the work was carried out by a friendly, very professional team of 3 men. I would highly recommend this company”
-David.P

To remove any native flora in the southern Sydney St George region you must have a local council approval. Some introduced species can be removed by a qualified arborist without requiring approval.  The St George district includes the local government areas of Bayside Council & Georges River Council. You can find links for tree removal applications and guidelines on these pages.

On many occasions, local councils will not give permission to completely remove a healthy tree unless it poses a risk to surrounding structures or persons. Common reasons for allowing a tree to be removed is it has been storm damaged or has ‘Tree Cancer’, which could include termite infestation or rot.

Some factors that might affect your quote…

The size of your tree. Generally, the bigger it is, the longer it takes to remove – and the more space vegetation takes up in our trucks!

Ease of access. Trees around properties with steep embankments are often difficult to load onto vehicles.

Equipment needed. Certain projects require the use of barges, cranes and even helicopters which may be reflected in your quote.

    Yes – all of our quotes are complimentary with no obligation.

    Truth is, there are many factors that go into quoting a tree job. And, a lot of the time, less experienced companies will leave things out, try to change the price mid-job or cut corners on safety. Underinsured or underqualified tree loppers can quote cheaper but if anything were to go wrong – you’d bear the cost. We make sure you’re aware of every cost upfront so there’s no nasty surprises along the way.

    Yes, we’re comprehensively insured (so you can sleep easy at night). We hold $20m public liability insurance, workers comp insurance and professional indemnity insurance – with all of our vehicles and machinery covered, too!

    There are a lot of different variables that determine whether a tree needs council approval. In St George there are two main councils: Bayside and Georges river council. In both council areas, exempt species and smaller species don’t require council approval – so that’s good news! Approval is not required for trees that fall under the state government 10/50 bushfire clearing entitlement, deadwood removal, and if your tree needs to be cleared from power lines. 

    Absolutely – we’re owned and directed by a second-generation arborist! We care about quality output – so we put arborists through apprenticeships and now employ 25 qualified and experienced staff members.

    Okay, we LOVE talking about this… Generally, a qualified arborist has 3 years of industry experience, a minimum cert 3 in arboriculture and has worked extensively with other qualified arborists to understand the risks involved in safely pruning and removing trees. Learning how to conduct this career safely is an art form – and arborists need to know how to keep themselves and their clients safe without causing increased tree risks. On the other hand, the risk is higher when working with an unqualified arborist (or tree lopper), as they are often self-taught and underinsured.

    Yep – from time to time we give away free mulch. We have a yard at Kirrawee and can fill up trailers for you if required.

    We can take away stump grindings, yes. Generally (unless mentioned in the quote) stump grindings remain to fill the hole as they’ll subside over time.

    You must get permission from your neighbour and council (if it’s a protected tree) to cut down the tree. It is not uncommon for our clients to be the neighbour, and not the tree owner – just be sure to seek approval first!

    Contact your local St George Council in the first instance. If they’re unable to assist you, seek advice from a Certificate 5 (Cert 5) arborist. In some instances you may have a case in the land and environment court.

    If your tree has been heavily impacted by a storm and is an imminent danger as assessed by a qualified arborist – it can be removed without council approval. The best action (like always!) is to seek the opinion of a qualified arborist through a site inspection.
