Applying for a Permit
High Country Tree Services will refer property owners to the appropriate authority to obtain the permits (if required) for tree removal or pruning, including the Mansfield Shire, VicRoads, Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority or Mt Buller & Mt Stirling Alpine Resorts Management Board.
Permits are required depending on the type, size and location of trees requiring attention. In particular, permits are required to remove trees that are close to roads and waterways or in the alpine area.
Airborne Trimming Services
Helicopter airborne tree trimming services are available for trees that are not safely accessible by climbers, cherry pickers or excavators.
High Country Tree Services specializes in the ropes side of the tree business, from climbing to rigging. There’s no ‘near enough is good enough’ when your life or property depends on ropes and rigging.
Qualified tree climbing arborists know the breaking strains and safe shock loadings of all the different sized ropes and cables used for different tasks. Friction drums, pulleys, winches, strops and other devices are used for large or difficult tree removals in confined spaces with minimal landing zone.
Other services offered by High Country Tree Services include: Cable Bracing and Land Clearing.
