Trees are essential, but when your trees start to do more harm than good, it’s time to pick up the phone and give us a call.
When pruning, trimming and general maintenance are no longer viable options, you’ll need to consider removal. To help you understand when it’s time to clear your yard of unwanted trees, here are the most common signs to watch out for.
✘ Too much shade: Trees provide natural protection from year-round sunlight, but overgrown branches and canopies can plunger your yard into darkness. Not only can this affect your outdoor lifestyle, but the lack of sunlight can become detrimental to other plants.
✘ Diseased or dying branches: Trees have a natural lifespan, and dead/dying trees will become weaker and more brittle over time. Without expert help, these dead trees become safety hazards that place people, pets, cars and property at risk.
✘ Home improvement needs: Looking to upgrade your home or start a landscaping project? Trees may need to be removed to accommodate construction projects. Whether you want to plant a new garden, extend your patio, or renovate your home, we can help make room.
✘ Storm damage: If heavy rain or strong winds have weakened your trees then you may need to consider removing them. Watch out for signs of damage to the trunk, for example, cracks, or sagging branches.
✘ Dead trees: There’s no bringing back a tree that’s reached the end of its lifespan, and leaving a dead tree on your property poses a significant risk in the form of falling branches and debris. If you’re dealing with dead trees, reach out and request a quote.
✘ Crowding: Trees in restricted spaces can press against the walls of your home, damage windows, or impact the structure of your property. Trees may also take nutrients from surrounding plants, making it crucial you control the spacing of trees in your yard.
This depends on the tree.
The size of your unwanted tree(s) will be the primary factor affecting time. Naturally, larger, mature trees take longer to safely remove than smaller, still-growing trees. As well as size, your arborists will consider the tree’s location (e.g. is it near your home? Is it near power lines? Can tree lopping machinery be easily positioned nearby?), as well as its health, as sturdier trees are typically tougher to remove than dead and brittle trees.
Although it may be tempting to tie a chain around your bumper bar and hit accelerate, this is more likely to break your bumper than your tree.
Professional tree surgeons will eliminate branches and boughs before cutting the trunk. Depending on your team's expertise, it takes a couple of hours to half a day to take down a tree.
While trees in nature are able to take care of themselves, trees in your backyard require help from humans.
It’s tempting to go down the DIY path and take an axe to your unwanted trees, especially if they’re under 10 metres and feel like a manageable weekend project, but there are many risks that come with amateur removal.
Not only can you end up on the wrong side of your local council, but there are plenty of possible landmines to step on by tackling the project yourself.
✘ Trees may grow again if roots aren’t removed
✘ The removal without expert help may put you in harm’s way
✘ Tree stumps left behind to create an eyesore and tripping hazard
✘ The removal can be hazardous and cause extensive property damage
It may even be tempting to leave trees in your yard, especially if they’re dying and you feel they may come down easier. However, a dead or hollow tree will slowly lose its strength and weak trees can't stand storms and strong winds. As the tree weakens, it becomes more hazardous to your property, surrounding people and structures.

You love your trees, and it’s hard to make the call to remove them.
And at Treeswest, we agree with you! It’s best to promote the health and wellbeing of trees as much as possible - but that’s not always a reality.
To help you decide if the removal is necessary, test yourself against the following figures.
☐ Is 50% of your tree damaged? It needs to be removed
☐ Are 50% of your tree’s roots damaged? It needs to be removed
☐ Is your tree suffering from internal decay? It needs to be removed
☐ Are more than 25% of the branches damaged? It needs to be removed
☐ Is there insufficient space for healthy tree growth? It needs to be removed
☐ Is your tree leaning more than 15% from the vertical? It needs to be removed
If you’re nodding your head at any of the above figures, reach out and chat to a Treeswest arborist on 0407 511 639 to organise a free tree assessment and quote.
Not so fast.
While trees do pose a risk to your home through overhanging branches, falling limbs, and even debris that clogs your gutters and causes a fire hazard, the removal may not be necessary.
If the tree is too close to your house structure or hanging over your roof - you have two options.
Option #1 - Have it removed by a local and trusted arborist
Option #2 - Have it pruned regularly
It’s recommended you keep your house safe by maintaining at least 3 to 6 metres of distance between trees and your home. This will give your tree’s root system and crown the space they need to grow without damaging the structure of your home.
In short, it depends.
Tree removal will depend on the council you live in, as well as the size of your tree and the species. It’s always a good idea to contact your local council (or call the Treeswest customer support line on 0407 511 639 for fast answers) to make sure you’re on the right side of the law.
Different councils will take into account factors like:
With maximum fines varying from $2,000 up to $50,000, it’s best to consult with a qualified arborist for legal removal that keeps you out of trouble.
