"Chris was really easy to talk with and very professional. He came to the house and gave a free quote, itemising our eucalypts so we could discuss further before confirming. The crew did a great job, they were really approachable and cleaned up well. There was no damage as they were careful around the house when lowering branches."
safe and professional
"Ascent Tree Solutions removed two large trees from our property which were dangerously close to our home. After the massive winds we've had this month they had to be removed, which was done very safely and professionally by Chris and his crew at a very competitive price and we would certainly use him again."

Do you have a tree you want to remove?
We have a team of qualified tree climbers ready to tackle any job, no matter how big or small. Complete our contact form below with your details and we’ll arrange a time to quote your work.
We can remove trees in any location, no matter how big or small. As climbing arborists, we access the tree using harnesses and ropes and bring it down piece by piece.
Our years of experience combined with full insurance, means you can rest assured that your property is safe with us. We’ll remove your tree efficiently and can leave the timber in firewood rounds or mulch for your yard.
There are many reasons to have your trees pruned: to let more light in your house; remove branches overhanging a neighbour’s yard (or their branches overhanging yours!); to shape the tree aesthetically; remove deadwood or regrowth; remove broken branches; cyclical or structural prune; or to clear powerlines. We are qualified arborists and well trained in all forms of tree pruning services to leave your tree in its best health.
With two stump grinders in our fleet, we can access and remove stumps in any location. If you're looking to landscape your garden, old, unsightly stumps need to go!
If you have a tree removed, we can grind the stump as an additional service. We use guards and barriers to ensure there’s no damage to nearby structures and will leave the grindings to avoid big holes in your yard.
If you have a tree with structural damage that you’d like to preserve, we can offer a Cable and Bracing service. This is a technique used to support and structurally maintain trees using steel cables and bolts. This reduces the risk of the tree failing, allowing you to retain the tree for years to come. There is no guarantee with cable and bracing, but it will reduce the likelihood of a branch failing and save the tree from immediate removal.
Living in Victoria means we’re prone to wild, unpredictable weather. High winds and heavy rain can cause damage to the trees on your property and create hazards that may not be immediately obvious. As well as removing broken, dangerous branches, and fallen trees, we can also complete a tree hazard assessment of your existing trees. It is always worth having your trees checked after stormy weather.
Weight reduction is a form of tree pruning where we reduce the weight of the crown to decrease the potential of branch failures whilst maintaining the shape of the tree and leaving it aesthetically pleasing.
Australian native gum (eucalyptus) trees are notorious for losing large limbs, and a weight reduction can help to keep these trees safely maintained.
