Questions people have asked us
Does your insurance cover our property against any damage that may occur during the tree work?
Yes, our insurance does cover you if any damage is caused during the removal of trees on your property.
Can problem trees be removed without too much damage to the surrounding landscaping?
On some sites it may be very difficult to avoid minor damage to surrounding plants, however this is kept to a minimum with the care of our team. This may even mean digging out and replanting some plants if necessary.
Can your team remove very large and problematic trees?
Argonauts have access to plant and equipment to deal with all situations so we can handle any tree challenges that you may have.
Does Argonauts remove all tree refuse from the site?
Recycling is extremely important to us; Argonauts remove all tree refuse in an environmentally friendly manner. All refuse is chipped or cut into firewood where possible.
How much of a tree can I prune without councils’ consent ?
Most councils will allow you to remove 10% of the live canopy without a permit. Although not always popular, it is a very sensible policy to protect the tree from early degeneration of the specimen through infection and disease. Every cut carries the potential for infection, much like it does for people.
Check if you’re in a 10/50 area
This is a rural fire service policy that allows clearing. Check the online tool on the day you are clearing to re-confirm your eligibility to clear vegetation under the 10/50 Scheme. This is because the 10/50 vegetation clearing entitlement area, the excluded matters or other rules may have changed. It is important to know that you must follow the eligibility or rules in place at the time you clear any vegetation. You may only clear your own land and tree removal in designated bush fire hazard zones. You can check if you are covered under this rule by visiting the Rural Fire Service website check 10/50
