Warning Signs Your Tree Needs to Be Removed

Trees add valuable shade, security, privacy, and character to homes and yards across Sydney - but there comes a time when the removal is necessary, so it’s crucial you know what red flags to look out for.

Everything from property development to risk management and environmental preservation can be the reason to organise a local service. The sooner you can identify signs of disease or damage, the easier it is to take action. If any of the following warning signs sound familiar, it may be time to call in a tree service.

❌ Damaged, Dying, or Dead Branches

A dangerous fall-risk, be on the lookout for signs of ill-health and illness like discoloured leaves, fungi, split bark, or dying limbs.

❌ Spreading Root Systems

Although out of sight, tree roots pose a risk to footpaths, pavings, and pipes. When trees grow too close to nearby structures, power lines, or utility lines, you’ll need a plan to safely take care of the problem.

❌ Falling Branches

Prevention is better than a cure, so be on the lookout for trees that are regularly dropping branches. A seemingly healthy tree trunk can still have branches that contain internal decay, or external cracks and hollow spots.

❌ Attacked By Termites

Termites and wood-boring insects can devastate your favourite trees from inside without showing signs...until the damage is done. Be on the lookout for termite shavings, termite wings, or hollowed trunks.

If you recognise one (or more) of these warning signs, it’s time for a professional arborist to step in. Get in touch with the SWTC team today and organise an obligation-free risk assessment today.

How Much Does This Service Cost in Sydney?

That’s the million-dollar question (thankfully, in Sydney it is much cheaper than that). The removal can cost anywhere from $500 to $5,000 and up, though the cost will depend on a range of influences, including: 


Have your trees seen better days? Sick and diseased trees pose additional safety risks to arborists, which can increase the overall cost.


Bigger trees typically require more manpower and equipment to handle the job, plus the cost of disposing of debris, branches, and the trunk.


Hardwood trees are generally tougher to remove than smaller, softer tree species, with different tree species requiring different disposal methods, contributing to the price you pay.


Can the tree be easily accessed by trucks, cranes, and wood chippers? Access considerations include stairs, sloping yards, and other structures, all of which impact the cost.

We understand how frustrating it is asking how much tree removal costs in Sydney and being told “it depends” so we’re proud to offer fast, FREE quotes to help you make an informed decision.

Frequently Asked Questions About Tree Removal in Sydney

Do You Need Permission to Cut Down a Tree in Sydney?

Tree removal in Sydney is regulated by the State Environmental Planning Policy (SEPP) and your local Sydney council, meaning you face heavy fines for removing the wrong tree. Got a spare $80,000? The fine for illegally removing a tree in Sydney can reach into the tens of thousands of dollars, and you won’t be the first resident to be caught out thinking “it’s on my property, I can probably remove it”.

At a fraction of the cost, our service provides a fast and reliable solution that cuts your risk of a council fine to zero. At the same time, you can relax and enjoy your weekend knowing the hard yakka is done for you, while you start planning your next backyard project.

Unfortunately, it’s a common mistake to think any tree on your property is yours to remove. This attitude can get you in hot water with your local Sydney council faster than you can say “Tiiiiimber”. Thankfully, the Sydney Wide Tree Cutting team is here to help you save money, protect your home, and stay on the right side of the council.

Can You Remove Trees Yourself in Sydney?

When it comes to DIY home improvement, there are plenty of projects you can handle yourself. From putting up a garden shed to replacing loose tiles, the right YouTube video and a little ‘handyman’ spirit can get countless jobs done.

If you’re faced with a small to medium-sized tree, it’s tempting to throw a ladder against the trunk and fire up a chainsaw to try and save a few bucks, but with a range of council rules and regulations relating to which trees you can legally remove, you can quickly end up in trouble with the law.

Outside of a frustrating (and expensive) fine, removing trees is a difficult and dangerous process. Removing even a small tree brings a myriad of safety issues from falling trees, branches, and debris, not to mention the power tools and equipment you’ll need to handle the job.

As Sydney locals, we have extensive knowledge of the tree species that grow in the Harbour City. So you can rest assured your tree removal project is completed quickly, with minimal disruption to your routine, and protects the native flora and fauna in your yard.
