Enhance Your Environment Safely with Professional Tree Care

Caring for the trees around your home or office is not just about enhancing the beauty of your environment, but also about ensuring safety and adhering to responsibilities. While DIY tree trimming might seem like a viable option, it's important to consider the expertise and specialized equipment required for such tasks. Amateur attempts can lead to unforeseen accidents and injuries.

In Australia, a small percentage of workplace fatalities over a 13-year period were attributed to accidents involving falling vegetation. This statistic highlights the importance of professional handling in these matters.

Liability and Your Peace of Mind

Neglecting tree care could lead to potential liabilities, especially when trees are diseased, damaged by storms, or encroaching onto neighbouring properties. However, when you maintain your trees regularly, you're not only keeping your property safe but also ensuring you're not liable for unforeseen natural occurrences like storm damage.

At Professional Tree Works Pty Ltd, we understand the importance of both tree health and property safety. Our team is backed by a robust $20 million public liability insurance policy and is fully compliant with OH&S legislation relevant to Gold Coast tree removal services.

Gold Coast Council Tree Removal Application Guide

If you want to remove trees on the Gold Coast then you need to receive council approval. The reason is simple, the Vegetation Management Code handles the tree and vegetation preservation within the city. We love trees and it would be terrible if everyone decided to cut down all of the trees on their property. The idea is to protect all vegetation found in private as well as freehold lands. Tree removal in Gold Coast is possible only if you get council approval, and it’s a good idea to understand what that includes. If you are unsure if you need a permit, keep on reading or you can give us a call and we will happily help you.

Gold Coast Council approval to cut down trees on your own property
Council Tree Removal is possible whenever you need to damage or remove any protected vegetation. As long as you send the application and it’s approved, you will have no problem completing this process as fast as possible. Alternatively, once you have your application approved, you can contact us for your tree removal needs. That being said, there are some things to keep in mind here. The tree location, size, and condition are pivotal for this entire process.

It’s also important to know some other factors here such as the tree species, its height, and the trunk circumference, as well as the distance from your home or any other structure out there. Every little detail counts here. Trees can be dangerous if proper precautions are not used. If there are any dead branches, that could potentially fall and harm someone, it is important to take proper action.

The following vegetation and tree removal checklist provide guidance where vegetation damage will be considered accepted development which can be undertaken without the City’s approval and does not require an application for Operational Works (Vegetation Clearing), or in other words an application to remove or damage the vegetation. Residents must note that any vegetation clearing must not result in harm to native wildlife. Where native wildlife is present in vegetation to be removed, it is recommended that a licensed spotter catcher be employed to oversee the removal works.

Gold Coast Vegetation and Tree removal Application checklist

  1. Previously approved Landscape Plan over your property
  2. Damage/removal of vegetation along an existing property boundary fence, or a proposed new fence.
  3. Damage/removal of vegetation that is close to a building?
  4. Damage/Removal of vegetation that is close to my pool fence?
  5. Removal/damage of vegetation that is part of the native under storey?
  6. Does the vegetation require removal because it is interfering with the lawful operation of an established agricultural business or animal husbandry business?
  7. Is the tree hazardous and/or dangerous?
  8. Does the vegetation fit within the Pest Species definition?

Gold Coast Tree removal permit assessment
You will need a permit if you answer yes to any of the following questions, the appropriate application will be required to be submitted to the City for assessment.

  • Is the vegetation greater than 4 metres in height; or
  • Is the vegetation equal to, or in excess of 40 centimetres in girth (circumference) measured at 1.4 metres above the ground level; or
  • Is the vegetation remnant vegetation and its native under-storey as identified on the Vegetation Management Overlay Map; or
  • Is the vegetation disturbed/re-growth/wetland vegetation and its native under-storey as identified on the Vegetation Management Overlay Map

Once you know the type of tree you are working with and the reason why you need it removed, it’s important to understand the gold coast city council tree preservation document. Every neighbourhood and region comes with its own set of rules when it comes to tree removal on the Gold Coast. The TPO will let you know if you really need to file the application or not, so try to keep that in mind if possible.

General Tree removal Tips
You need to make sure that the council tree removal application is complete, otherwise, it will not be accepted. If you need to submit anything else, that will cost extra. .Again, working with a professional is the right approach because you can access all the necessary services and spend much less than you would imagine.

Normally the council will require you to plant another tree once you remove a tree from your property. A good arborist will be able to provide you with proper assistance in such a situation. The idea is to know exactly what you are getting into and focus on getting the best results. Our company offers outstanding tree removal services, so if you have a council approval, you should consider getting in touch with us. We are always here to help, and we offer high-quality services at a very good price!
