The Tree Lopping Process

Wondering what's involved in a typical tree lopping job? Here's a brief overview of our process:

  1. Free Quote - We start by inspecting the tree and providing an obligation-free quote based on the scope of work. Our experienced arborist will assess the tree's health and structure and advise on the best approach.
  2. Council Permits - Most councils require approval for tree lopping or removal. We can assist with identifying any protected trees and preparing the necessary paperwork to obtain permits on your behalf.
  3. Safety Setup - Before starting, we conduct a safety briefing and set up exclusion zones to ensure the work area is secure. We also notify any affected neighbours or authorities.
  4. Access & Equipment - Depending on the location and size of the tree, we may use elevated work platforms, cranes or specialised rigging to access the canopy safely. Our crew are trained in advanced climbing techniques.
  5. Tree Lopping - Our skilled climbers ascend the tree and begin selectively removing or reducing branches according to Australian Standards (AS4373). We make precise cuts to promote healing and minimise stress on the tree.
  6. Debris Removal - All branches and foliage are lowered carefully to the ground and fed through a wood chipper to create mulch. We can leave the mulch on site for your garden or remove it from the property.
  7. Clean Up - We pride ourselves on leaving your property spotless. Our team will thoroughly rake up leaves and twigs and use blowers to clean driveways and pathways. We can also cut larger logs for firewood.

Throughout the process, our friendly crew will keep you informed and answer any questions you may have. Our goal is to make your tree lopping experience as seamless and stress-free as possible while delivering outstanding results.

Why Choose Professional Tree Loppers?

Tree lopping is one of the most dangerous jobs in Australia. Attempting to do it yourself or hiring an unqualified operator can lead to serious injury, property damage and even death. Here are some key reasons to always use a professional tree service like Affordable Dan's:

  • Safety - Our crew are fully trained and equipped to work safely at heights with chainsaws and heavy branches. We follow strict OH&S protocols to mitigate risks to people and property.
  • Expertise - Our arborists have the knowledge and skills to assess your tree's health and structure and determine the best lopping approach. Incorrect techniques like lopping can permanently damage trees.
  • Efficiency - We have the manpower and machinery to dismantle even the largest trees quickly and efficiently with minimal disruption to your home or business.
  • Compliance - We understand the complex web of council regulations, Australian Standards and environmental protection laws that apply to tree lopping. We'll ensure your job is 100% compliant.
  • Insurance - We carry full public liability and workers compensation insurance for your peace of mind. This protects you in the unlikely event of any damage or injury resulting from our work.
  • Clean Up - DIY tree work can leave an unsightly mess of sawdust, leaves and branches on your property. We'll make sure everything is cleaned up and removed from site, leaving your yard spotless.

Benefits of Preventative Tree Lopping

Scheduling regular tree lopping maintenance with a qualified arborist like Affordable Dan's offers a raft of benefits for your trees, property and community:

  • Safety - Identify and remove any deadwood, damaged or overhanging branches that could pose a risk to people or property, particularly in storm season.
  • Tree Health - Promote strong structure and reduce weight on individual branches to minimise the risk of failure. Improve light and air circulation through the canopy.
  • Aesthetics - Enhance the form and appearance of the tree with selective pruning. Control size and shape to complement your landscape and increase property value.
  • Pest & Disease Control - Remove affected branches to manage pest and disease outbreaks. Avoid using wound dressings which can seal in pathogens.
  • Clearance - Maintain required clearances from buildings, fences and especially powerlines. Prevent damage to infrastructure and utilities.
  • Views - Lop trees to open up scenic vistas or increase natural light into living spaces without removing the tree entirely.
  • Root Management - Reduce canopy to slow root growth where they are damaging surfaces or underground services.

For the best results, only allow qualified arborists to lop your trees. Affordable Dan's are the leading tree loppers Sydney wide, with the expertise to maintain your trees' long-term health, safety and beauty. Contact us today for a free quote and consultation.

Tree Lopping Costs Sydney

Council Permits for Tree Lopping Sydney

Most local councils regulate the lopping or removal of certain trees on private property. These Tree Preservation Orders (TPOs) are designed to protect the urban tree canopy and significant species.

In general, you need council approval to prune a tree if it is:

  • Over a certain height (typically 5-10m)
  • Over a certain trunk diameter (typically 40-50cm)
  • A native or protected species
  • Heritage listed or in a conservation area

However, exemptions may apply for trees that are dead, dangerous or within a certain distance of approved structures. Policies vary between councils, so it's important to check your local laws before lopping.

Affordable Dan's can help you navigate the complex council approval process and even submit the application on your behalf. We have extensive experience dealing with Sydney councils to ensure your tree work is fully compliant.

Tree Lopping Sydney FAQs

How much does tree lopping cost in Sydney?

Tree lopping costs in Sydney vary depending on the size and scope of the job. As a rough guide, expect to pay from $250 for a minor prune up to $2000+ for a complex removal. Always get a written quote before engaging an arborist. For more detailed information, read our guide on tree lopping costs in Sydney.

Do I need council approval to lop a tree in Sydney?

Most Sydney councils regulate tree lopping on private property. If the tree is over a certain size or a protected species, you may need approval. Fines apply for unauthorised work. Check with your local council or arborist. Learn more about tree removal permits in Sydney.

What's the difference between lopping and pruning?

Lopping usually refers to the random cutting of branches without regard to tree structure or health. Pruning is the selective removal of branches to improve tree shape, safety and vigour following Australian Standards. Lopping can damage trees.

How do I find a qualified arborist in Sydney?

Start by checking if they have a minimum AQF Level 3 in Arboriculture, which is the industry standard for tree work. Membership of professional associations like Arboriculture Australia is also a good sign. Get referrals and check online reviews. Read our tips on how to choose a tree lopper in Sydney.

What are the signs that my tree needs lopping?

Poor tree health or structure, such as dead wood, cracks, decay or crossing branches. Safety hazards like overhanging branches. Excessive size or density blocking light and views. Damage to property or interference with powerlines.

What is the best time of year to lop trees?

Late winter or early spring is best for most deciduous trees, while evergreens can be lopped year round. Avoid lopping in the peak of summer as trees are under stress. Dangerous trees should be lopped as soon as possible.

Can I lop a tree myself?

DIY tree lopping is extremely dangerous and not recommended unless you have the proper training, equipment and safety gear. Incorrect techniques can seriously damage the tree and even kill it. Always hire a qualified arborist for any major tree work.

How often should I lop my trees?

Most trees only need lopping every few years to maintain their health and structure. However, this varies depending on the species, age and location of the tree. Your arborist can advise on the best maintenance schedule for your trees.

What equipment is used for tree lopping?

Professional tree loppers use a range of specialised equipment, including chainsaws, pole saws, ropes, harnesses, elevated work platforms (EWPs), wood chippers and stump grinders. All equipment must comply with Australian safety standards.

What happens to the waste from tree lopping?

All tree lopping waste is chipped on site and removed from the property, unless you request to keep the mulch for your garden. Larger timber can be cut into firewood rings. We always clean up the site and leave it tidy after the job.

How long does tree lopping take?

The time required for tree lopping depends on the size and complexity of the job, as well as site access and weather conditions. Minor pruning may only take a couple of hours, while a large tree removal could span several days. Your arborist can give you an estimate before starting.

What safety precautions are used in tree lopping?

Tree loppers follow strict safety protocols to protect workers, clients and property. These include conducting risk assessments, using personal protective equipment (PPE), setting up exclusion zones, and having emergency plans in place. Traffic control may be required for street trees.

Can you lop trees near powerlines?

Yes, our qualified arborists are authorised to work near live powerlines. We use specialised insulated tools and follow Ausgrid's guidelines for minimum clearances. Never attempt to lop trees near powerlines yourself due to the high risk of electrocution.

Will tree lopping kill my tree?

When done correctly by a skilled arborist, lopping should not kill the tree. However, poor techniques like topping or lopping too much of the canopy can severely weaken the tree and make it vulnerable to pests and diseases. Some trees may never recover from bad lopping.

How much does tree removal cost in Sydney?

Tree removal costs in Sydney range from around $300 for a small tree up to $5000+ for a complex large tree. The exact price depends on factors like height, diameter, location, access and waste disposal. See our comprehensive guide to tree removal costs in Sydney for more details.

Do you offer emergency tree lopping services?

Yes, Affordable Dan's provides 24/7 emergency tree services for storm-damaged or dangerous trees that pose an immediate risk. Our arborists are on call to respond quickly and make the site safe. We can also assist with insurance claims for emergency tree work.
