Power Lines, Tree Rot and Proximity to Buildings
Factors that can increase the cost of a tree services quote in Australia are often closely linked to safety. If a problem tree is decaying on the inside, overhanging power lines or buildings, it will require more time, equipment and risk management strategies. To climb and remove a decaying tree takes much more time and skill as the shock loading that branches would usually handle, for rigging purposes, is not there. The tree becomes less predictable and requires more skill to remove safely. A problem tree's proximity to power lines and buildings affect price also. In most cases, the tree can still be skillfully climbed, however there may be the need for cherry picker to complete the job safely.
The Average Cost of Sunshine Coast Tree Services and Tree Services in Australia
While some Sunshine Coast Arborists or Tree Services providers in Australia give by the hour quotes, at tricky Tree Solutions, we generally provide quotes for the entire job. That way there are no hidden costs and you know what you are in for. If an arborist provides an hourly rate that seems reasonable, make sure you inquire as to what additional costs are involved and if they will guarantee the work to be done within a certain time frame. That way you are not left feeling like there have been discrepancies in the quoting process. Average prices to hire a qualified arborist for tree surgery or tree removal in Australia ranges from $300 to over $10,000, with an average cost of $1,000 (data provided by HiPages). Hourly rates can range from $70ph for stump grinding to more than $180ph for complex tree surgery and tree removal.
The Access of the Truck and Chipper to the Problem Tree
The truck and chipper access to the problem tree greatly affects the price. If an entire tree needs to be dismantled and lowered in to a small backyard, and then hauled up a hill, through a tiny gate to the wood chipper on the roadside, it is going to take much longer and therefore cost more. Often we use a winch to haul out large logs to save on time and costs. Or we will set up a zip line in the tree so the branches can be lowered over the top of obstacles on the site.
