Fence Clearance

Trees which overhang fences or grow close to powerlines are complex and even dangerous to prune or remove.

Our expert arborists can assist with these tasks to ensure the work is done properly and safely.

Trees which border a fence or property are the most common form of neighbour disputes; a tree which may provide benefit to one party could also be a nuisance to another.

Legally speaking if a tree is on your property, you are responsible for the maintenance of the tree, however a neighbour is allowed to prune leaves or branches that may overhang onto their property back to the fence line.

If you are thinking about having a tree removed or pruned which overhangs into your neighbour’s property it is important you engage them into your plans.

Likewise, if you want a tree which overhangs into your property pruned it is advised you also speak with your neighbours before work commences.

From there Cut It Right Tree Service can help to allay any concerns you or your neighbour may have by explaining the process of pruning or removal before work starts. It is important to understand we operate with the interests of the tree in mind.

Our arborists are experts at removing and pruning trees close to a fence line and take due caution to ensure no damage is done to the fence or either property.

What to expect at your free tree inspection

The first thing we need to do is assess your situation, here we are not only looking at the tree(s) being removed but also any dangers around the area or underground that could be affected by the removal of the tree(s). Cut It Right Tree Service offer a FREE tree inspection service within the Mornington Peninsula. The inspection usually only takes 15 - 20 minutes and will give us a good opportunity to understand your specific needs.

Once we have assessed the trees we will then provide you with a written quotation. In some cases a permit form the council may be required to remove the tree(s), if so we will give you all the information and assistance you will need to acquire them. If you have happy with our quote and wish to proceed we can set up a time and date to start your job.

What to expect on the day

A time will be arranged prior to the day. Upon arrival we are already scanning the area looking for hazards (powerlines, plumbing, telephone, gas, water) and ways to protect your property. We will hold a small toolbox meeting with you that will confirm the job details before starting. During the course of the removal you will notice our team communication throughout the process. We have one team in the tree and one team clearing the debris on the ground. Once the removal is complete the team tidy the area and return any moved property back to its original position (tables, chairs and pot plants etc.).

How to book

When you ask for a quote, it ought to be fair and competitively priced. It is a good idea to procure two or three different estimates. This will help you decide which company you want to hire to get the job done. Additionally, this will help you make an informed decision by comparing the companies and people you will be dealing with.
