Stump grinding generally causes minimal disturbance to the surrounding landscape. The process focuses on the tree stump itself, and while it may create a mound of wood chips or sawdust, this can be cleaned up or used as mulch. Any minor damage to the surrounding grass can typically recover with time and proper care.
Bushfires are a common risk in NSW, particularly during the hot, dry summer months. Clearing land can create a ‘fire break’ that reduces the amount of combustible material available and can slow or halt the spread of a fire, helping to protect buildings and lives.

To prepare for an emergency storm damage service, ensure that the area is as safe as possible—keep people away from the damaged tree and avoid doing anything that could exacerbate the situation. Provide clear, detailed information when you call the service, including the size and type of the tree and the nature of the damage.

Whether a dead or dying tree can be saved often depends on the cause of the tree’s condition. An arborist can assess the tree and may be able to treat diseases or pests that are causing harm. However, if the tree is too far gone, or if it poses a risk to people or property, removal might be the best option.

Yes, tree removal services typically operate year-round. However, the best time for non-emergency tree removal or pruning is usually late winter or early spring, when the trees are dormant and less likely to be stressed by the work.
