    Yes, we have all of the requisite insurances, such as workers' compensation for our employees and public responsibility for third-party and property damage. We have the highest level of insurance we could acquire.

    Each council's TPO (Tree Preservation Order) is slightly different, so consult with your local council if you're unsure. On our website, we also have ties to and summaries of many council TPOs. If you're still not sure, our consultant is very familiar with the councils we deal with and can help you out.

    If the work is not approved by the council, you have the right to appeal the decision. In most cases, if the tree has been refused full removal, they may grant permission for pruning.

    That is a big yes! Our quoters have a variety of credentials in the field as well as many years of business experience. This means that we can provide you with the most effective solution to your dilemma.

    Yes, unless otherwise stated on the quote, we remove all tree debris as part of our service. If you choose, you can cut the wood to firewood length and leave the mulch if you want to use it in your gardens. We have many testimonials stating how well we clean up our sites.

    Much of the work is performed in a regulated fashion, with the cut pieces being lowered to the ground using ropes and pulleys. This enables us to work through any potential roadblocks. Our employees are very diligent, and they will move any pots, furniture, or other things in the work area before they begin.

    We have clients who are not present when the work is performed on a daily basis, but it can be fun to watch if you have never had tree work done before. The work crew will have a copy of the quote and will be aware of the tasks that must be completed. The work crew is self-sufficient and does not need electricity.

    A standard width gate can accommodate our smaller machines. They are climbing traditional stair treads. In most cases, ramps may be used to mitigate raised garden beds and retaining walls.

    If we harm the facilities when performing a service site, it will be our duty to repair them at our expense. If no location was performed, you may be held liable for any repairs. However, this happens infrequently because we still dig test holes if we have any questions, and in most cases, the services run in a straight line to the point of connection, allowing us to pinpoint their location with some accuracy.

    The more grindings there are, the bigger the stump. The grindings from smaller stumps normally blend in well with the soil during the grinding process and are not a concern. However, for larger stumps, the excess may need to be removed because it is mainly made up of wood shavings with very little soil material. It can be used as a mulch in existing gardens, but it is best not to leave it in a concentrated area because it does not decompose well.

    Yes, you are welcome to keep any wood chippings or mulch for use in your garden at no additional cost.

    To begin, contact your local government to see if the tree is protected or if it is subject to an environmental overlay. If that's the case, you'll need a permit to cut it down. You can cut back any leaves, branches, or roots that are overhanging the boundary line if it is not covered or if you have a permit. Unless otherwise accepted, this is recognised as the right of abatement and is done at your expense. Unless you and your neighbor agree otherwise, you must return the branches and leaves to them since they are their property.

    It's best if you interact with your neighbor along the way. Take advantage of the opportunity to clarify the rules. Inform them of your plans and where the cut branches will be placed. This should ideally discourage future conflicts and might even provide you with a better outcome in the long run.

    Can I compel my neighbour to cut down or kill their tree?
    Not unless you file a private nuisance suit (External link), which means someone's act or omission significantly interferes with your use and enjoyment of your land. A private nuisance lawsuit must be filed in court, so seek legal advice first. If you go ahead, you must demonstrate that the annoyance is serious and irrational.

    The court will weigh the following factors when making a decision in your case:

    the general atmosphere of your neighborhood where the interference occurred or is occurring what is causing it how long it has been occurring and whether it is still occurring the effect on you if the interference was present when you moved in how useful or important the behavior causing the interference is what normal people would think of the interference
    The court would also consider the annoyance or effects of the intrusion on you, as well as the expense and consequence of making your neighbor alter or interrupt their actions, using common sense.

    It's important to remember that living in a neighborhood means there will be conflicting desires or behaviors from neighbors from time to time. The court considers these issues pragmatically, acknowledging that noise, irritation, inconvenience, and discomfort are likely to occur wherever people live.

    It's possible that your next-door neighbor is responsible for the losses. The general duties on citizens to compensate for destroying a boundary fence can be found in the Fences Act[1]. Harm to drains, foundations, or paths caused by roots is typically protected by property law.

    It's often preferable and try to reach an agreement first. Going to court is costly and time-consuming, but reaching a private deal would save you time and money. You should discuss mediation with us (DSCV). It's free and confidential, and we work with parties to help them settle conflicts without going to court. Contact a Dispute Assessment Officer via our contact page or by calling 1300 372 888. We should set up a meeting with all sides in a neutral setting with two qualified mediators in order to find a resolution.

    It's a good idea to gather as much information as you can so that you can have an educated conversation with your neighbor. This may include the following:

    a letter from an arborist stating that the tree was to blame for the damage
    a quote for the cost of removal or repair based on photographs of the damage
    Remember, you'll need much or all of this anyway if you try mediation or plan to go to court. Furthermore, the other party's desire is not irrational.
