Tree Removal Adelaide

Trees are beautiful. They provide habitats and the very air that we breathe. Unfortunately, there are some situations that will require tree removal. This is especially the case in high wind areas in Adelaide where trees are in proximity to roofs, windows and power lines. Trees in high wind areas or proximity to houses and power lines are a safety hazard for road users, tenants, pets, and habitat.

At ProArbor Tree Strategies Adelaide, we strongly believe that trees should be removed as a last resort, for safety reasons, and by the law. Where possible we suggest alternatives such as pruning and, if plausible, transplanting the tree elsewhere on the property or in an area nearby.

Can any Tree be removed?

No. Tree removal isn’t as easy as choosing a tree and undertaking a tree removal service. There are laws and guidelines in place to ensure trees and vegetation are preserved where possible.

The removal of a tree over 5m will need to be approved by your local council. Some trees (particularly natives) may be included in a government tree preservation order, which in the case of a healthy tree cannot be removed.

There are conditions outlined by the SA government that allow trees to be removed. For example if:

  • The tree is dead or damaged or is about to fall or cause some other immediate damage
  • There are problems with roots blocking pipes
  • The tree is threatening a building or structure
  • The tree is on a boundary, and you or your neighbour wishes to erect a dividing fence, and
  • Branches are threatening roof tiles or other damage
