FAQs

Q. What tree services do Ashgrove Tree Services provide?

We provide a complete range of tree services from pruning, and shaping right through to tree felling and complete tree removal. And once the tree has been removed, we can also offer a competitive stump grinding service that allows you to reclaim the site where the tree once was!  

Q. How safe is tree removal, pruning and felling?

Considering the heights involved, the tools that we use and the immense weight of branches and trees, tree removal, felling and pruning is very dangerous and should only be undertaken by a skilled professional. With over 12 years industry experience and a commitment to health and safety, the team at Ashgrove Tree Services provide professional, efficient and safe tree services to homes and businesses in Brisbane’s Northern suburbs.  

Q. What tools and equipment do you use?

Every job is different and requires a different set of tools, techniques and skills. As well as the mandatory chainsaw, we also use a complex array of harnesses, ropes, pulleys and tackles to safely remove any part of any tree. For larger jobs it is not unusual to employ the services of cranes and lorries to safely bring down and transport large trees.  

Q. How expensive is it to remove a tree?

We realise that cost is an important consideration. That’s why we focus on keeping our prices as low as possible while keeping our standards to the level that you would expect from a premier arborist team. For an obligation free assessment of your tree felling, pruning, cutting or removal needs, please contact us on 1300 ASHGROVE today.  

Q. What is stump grinding?

Once a tree has been felled and removed, you are still left with an unsightly stump. Because of the extent of the underground root network, it is not always practical or possible to dig the stump out. As an alternative we use a special piece of machinery that literally grinds the stump down to ground level, allowing you to pave, plant, concrete or deck over the top of it. Our stump grinders can access even the most hard to reach areas and are a quick and economical alternative to removing a stump of any size.  

Q. Are there any trees that you cannot remove?

Over the last twenty years we have worked with some of Brisbane’s largest and most troublesome trees. Certain trees need council approval to remove and there may be certain trees that cannot be felled due to safety concerns. With that said, however, we’re available to offer you any advice that you may need to ensure that your tree removal or cutting project goes as smoothly as possible. Contact us on 1300 ASHGROVE for an obligation free evaluation today.  

Q. What other things do I need to consider before removing a tree?

Certain trees are protected because of the surrounding wildlife. Other trees require council permits to make any changes – including pruning more than 10% of the foliage. The last thing that you want to do is to get into a disagreement with the council regarding removing a tree. That’s why Ashgrove Tree Services are happy to help you with every step of the process. You can contact us here to set up an obligation free assessment of your needs.  

Q. Do you need to be onsite to provide a quote?

We are able to provide over-the-phone quotes for some of our stump grinding and pruning services. For all other jobs, however, we need to be onsite to be able to factor in all of the aspects of removing or reshaping a tree. All of our quotes are obligation free and we pride ourselves on prompt, reliable and professional service.

As well as being fully insured and carrying 20 years of experience, Ashgrove Tree Services are also proud members of the Queensland Arboricultural Association.
