I recently had The Tree Company come out to prune 11 Manchurian Pear Trees and 1 Yellow Box Gum in my yard, and I couldn't be happier with their service. From start to finish, the entire experience was exceptional.The team arrived promptly at the scheduled time and were incredibly professional throughout the process. They took the time to understand exactly what I wanted and offered expert advice on the best way to achieve the desired results. Their knowledge and passion for tree care were evident.The pruning work they did was meticulous. The Manchurian Pear Trees and Gum now look beautifully shaped. They were careful to ensure that the trees' natural beauty was preserved while removing any dead or overgrown branches. The cleanup was thorough, leaving my yard spotless.What impressed me the most was their attention to detail and commitment to customer satisfaction. The team went through final check list to make sure I was thoroughly happy before finishing up. They were friendly, courteous, and clearly dedicated to providing top-notch service. I would highly recommend The Tree Company to anyone in need of tree care services.Thank you, The Tree Company

We were very happy with this company's tree cutting service. In their efforts to maneuver their gear around the easement grass area they did cause some divots. However they responded immediately and repaired the divots. We would certainly recommend The Tree Company.

I was very happy with the service and professionalism from The Tree Company when they removed a large Montery Cypress from my garden. Due to the proximity to HV lines and a fairly busy road, a power shutdown and traffic controls were also required, adding to the complexity. The Tree Company liaised with the relevant organisations and everything happened according to plan.The team were very professional, friendly and hard working. I also appreciated the clean up of my yard on completion of the job. Would recommend

We appreciate the excellent work carried out by your team members-Eddie, Michael & Jacob. We have a very healthy Southern Blue Gum & Black Peppermint Gum in the backyard. Although both have been maintained over the years, the recent storms that hit Melbourne led to two major healthy branches being torn away, one wedged between two lower branches, dangerously suspended above the garden. The team showed great attention to detail and care to avoid cut branches falling onto the garden during weight reduction. Maintaining the canopy and shape of the trees was a priority in their work. We will certainly refer The Tree Company to others.

Very happy with the service received by The Tree Company. This is the second time we have used them and they do a great job.

Ed and the crew did a fabulous job to remove the dead tree. Quick and very safe - looked after both themselves and my property. Cleaned up very well. Highly recommended.

I needed someone to come promptly to deal with a dead tree. The Tree Company had someone here to look at it the next day; and when the tree was removed soon after that, quickly and efficiently, I was able to relax again. They came right on time and were friendly and helpful to deal with, so I won't hesitate to contact them again if I have a tree problem in future.

The team cut down a dying tree leaning heavily on a public road and handled the job really well from quoting to cleaning up all the debris on a hot and dusty day.I will use this company again when our gum trees need maintenance.

The appointment was for 10.30 am and no one had arrived by 11.30am so I called the Tree Company who advised that the truck was full of mulch and needed emptying. The crew arrived at 11.45 then had lunch and then just after noon, said they could not remove the tree stump despite the job being previously physically assessed and quoted by the Boss. Another staff member arrived and after several more conversations the boss rang me and said he would not remove the stump. I then said I did not want to go ahead. The crew then left without further conversation with me . Very disappointed - the head man quotes for the job and the team say they cannot do it !
04:05 12 Feb 24
I was very impressed with the overall efficiency of this company. From the quote to the job, it was all clear, on time and no mess at all left behind. The three men who felled my tree were very personable and helpful.

Fantastic service. Great communication. Very professional service. The team arrived on time, did a great job removing the snapped tree branch and cleaned up all debris. Highly recommend this company.Please see before and after photos.

The Tree Company has just finished a job at our place and I'm jumping online to give a positive review straight away. Very smooth process from quoting to completion. The guys who did the job were great. Looks like an excellent job. Very reasonable price. Place was left clean. Also, council called us because a neighbour had complained and we told them it was The Tree Company doing the job. Council's response: "no issues, they will do a great job". Highly recommended!

We had the best experience with these guys! They were responsive, friendly, and professional. We had two trees taken out of our back yard and they were expertly removed and our yard was left looking perfectly clean and tidy. Would absolutely recommend this company and would use them again in future without hesitation.

Their truck hit my parked car and tried hard to avoid all the responsibilities. How can you trust the company like this to do the job?The funnest thing is the owner replied my review after one year saying they have lodge the insurance company. Is it that hard to stop lying?

Frequently Asked Questions

I want to lop, prune, remove or destroy a tree on my property. Am I allowed to do this?

There are several regulations in Victoria that relate to vegetation on private property, such as planning overlays or local laws. You may require a permit to undertake works that involve the removal, pruning, destruction or lopping of trees, including undertaking building or works near a tree.  Contact us your local council for advice on regulations that apply to trees on your prope

When should I remove a tree?

When it comes to deciding to remove a tree in Melbourne its best to seek advice from a qualified arborist.  Structural issues, such as large dead branches or an unstable root system, could pose safety risks, warranting removal for precaution. Trees significantly damaged by storms or lightning may become hazardous, and their removal becomes a priority. Persistent signs of poor health, obstruction of views, or alignment with landscaping plans are additional reasons to consider tree removal. Before making any decisions, it’s advisable to consult with a certified arborist to assess the tree’s condition and explore alternative solutions. Additionally, be aware of and adhere to local regulations and permits governing tree removal in your area.

I have spoken to my neighbour about their tree, but they refuse to do anything about the issue. What are my options?

In some municipalities permits are not required to prune canopy trees.  If this is the case neighbour’s trees can be pruned back, but not damaged or disfigured.  That being said its always best to discuss pruning with the tree owner first

Local councils do not typically get involved in private tree disputes between neighbours. The Dispute Settlement Centre of Victoria provides guidance and free mediation services for tree disputes.

I believe a tree is causing damage to my property. What can I do?

Depending on the nature of the damage, you may require the advice of a structural engineer, a geotechnical engineer, and a qualified arborist to determine the cause.

If a tree is found to be causing damage, it may be appropriate to retain the tree and install a root barrier to avoid further damage. In other cases, the tree may require removal in order to repair the damage and avoid further damage.

If you are not the owner of the tree, document the damage and put your concerns in writing to the owner.

Are gum trees dangerous?

Gum trees (within the genius of Eucalyptus, Corymbia & Angophora)  are a dominant feature in Australian landscapes and comprise of 850 eucalypt species that vary in form and size. Generalisations about such a common and diverse group of trees,  are more often than not, misconceptions.   Regular maintenance, including pruning to reduce branch weight, bracing heavy overextended stems and or branches, monitoring for pest and disease infestation or poor structure, can help ensure the safety of gum trees on your property. Consulting with an arborist is advisable to assess the specific risks associated with your gum trees and determine appropriate measures to enhance their safety.  Planting suitable trees on your property is key, if size is an issue there are plenty of stunning dwarf Eucalyptus varieties available.
