Gum Tree Removal
Gum trees can be found all over Australia, and are significant to the native flora here in the Melbourne area. The government works to protect large trees in our community, and for good reason. There are many benefits that gum trees and other large trees bring to our community and the local environment. From shade that makes the hot Australian sun tolerable, to ecosystem balance and flood prevention during the rainy season – gum trees are more involved in your day-to-day life than you may think.
But if you are stuck with a damaged eucalyptus tree or need one removed for land clearing projects, removal may be your only option. You may even notice that your tree has become unruly, tangling with electrical cables or power lines. To avoid unwanted accidents on your property, you should call-in a professional arborist to help you deliberate your gum tree removal needs.
Gum trees are among the more expensive trees to remove due to their hard timber and large size. They are also protected by most local councils as a native species to Australia. Whether you need a permit to remove your eucalyptus tree or not will depend on the state of your tree and the reason for removal. You can check your local Tree Preservation Order to see whether or not you need a permit.
In general, you should not need a permit to remove your gum trees if your tree is smaller than three metres, dead, fallen over, within three metres of your home’s foundation, or in a fire zone.
It could be difficult to decide whether or not your gum tree needs to be removed from your property, and how to go about removal.
