Can I do my own tree lopping in Tweed Heads?
Tree lopping requires a professional arborist. It takes a well-trained crew with the right tools. After all, there are too many different ways that you could get hurt especially if the branches are hard to reach. What’s more, you could damage property (yours or another’s) if a wayward branch falls and makes a lasting impression.
When you choose a professional tree lopper or arborist, they should come fully licensed and insured to protect themselves, you, your property, and anyone (or anything) else involved. Plus, they’ll be able to help you determine whether you need to get permission or a permit to do the work required. While it’s not illegal to cut down some trees, there are strict rules in Tweed Heads regarding the treatment of tree cutting, lopping, and removal going right down to the size (circumference and height) of the tree as well as proximity to the house. Your tree service can help you make sense of all of this while safely lopping what needs lopping.
How much does tree lopping cost in Tweed Heads?
Compared to removing a tree altogether, tree lopping is an affordable option that will also help extend the life of your tree. In either case, the cost comes down, mostly, to the size of the tree. The larger and taller the tree is, the more it will cost for tree lopping service
On average, tree lopping costs between $250-$350 if the tree is one-story tall. A large tree, three or more stories tall, will cost much more at $600-$1,000. You also might pay more if the branches in question are in more precarious spaces like over structures or getting closer to power lines since that adds to the time, technique, and tools needed to get the job done right.
Keep in mind that these prices should include the crew, equipment, the actual lopping, and then cleanup of the debris. Make sure that this is included in any quote that you get for a service. Some services will cut corners – and costs – only to leave you with the cuttings to dispose of yourself afterward.

Frequently Asked Questions About Tree Lopping in Tweed Heads
WHY CHOOSE KILLICK TREE MANAGEMENT
We work with you and Tweed Shire Council to ensure that any approvals needed are sought from council directly. For more information, you can visit the Tweed Shire Council website. There are typically fewer restrictions when it comes to lopping and trimming than there are for full-on removal. That said, Council restrictions may apply based on the type of size of tree.
An arborist is specifically trained on trees and all things tree health and maintenance. Only a qualified arborist can offer a professional assessment of your tree. Handymen, gardeners and lawn services tend to charge less for tree lopping because they are not trained, licensed and insured for tree services. Large trees require an expert arborist or tree surgeon.
That’s okay! A trained arborist will be able to assess the situation and provide the right equipment for the job. There are many different ways to bring down a problematic branch including piecemeal cutting and crane removals. It’s better to call out for a free quote and consultation than let a branch continue to threaten your structures, power lines, or overall safety.
