“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
Caringbah, NSW
“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

“The team at Shane’s Trees were wonderful. They are very safety conscious which was my main concern. They implemented a plan to help my tree. Polite and informative as to what they were doing. Highly recommend Shane’s Trees, in fact they are coming out again to look at another tree for me.”

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.

    There are a number of factors that affect the cost of pruning and removing trees. Check out our answer video where we outline the basis of how costs are calculated. Once you’ve taken a look, load up our tree removal prices page and use the tree removal calculator to get a rough idea of how much your project will cost. Or just get in touch for a complimentary quote!

    We cover all of The Illawarra and Greater Sydney. See above for our specific locations.

    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 variables that determine whether a tree needs council approval. In Wollongong, exempt species and smaller species (under 3m) don’t require council approval – so that’s good news! Approval is also not required for trees that fall under the state government 10/50 bushfire clearing entitlement.

    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 on 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 Wollongong 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.
