Our team is still providing professional tree services during the lockdown in Greater Sydney.
The NSW government is allowing tree removal and maintenance jobs to go ahead, as this is an essential service.
Understandably, many Australians are anxious about the Delta COVID-19 variant and related restrictions.
If you’re feeling nervous about engaging our services, please know that we take the welfare of our clients and workers very seriously.
Sydney Tree Company is following all government regulations and health advice, to keep everyone safe.
Many of our workers live in suburbs outside the restricted LGAs, so we’re able to continue operating – with a number of precautionary measures in place.
At this stage, we’re still servicing the restricted LGAs in emergency situations (but we’re careful to keep our distance from people).
Our office is constantly monitoring government updates:
We’ll let you know if we need to reschedule or cancel your booking, due to evolving health advice. Rest assured, you won’t be charged for cancelling or rescheduling for COVID-related reasons.
If everything goes ahead as planned, you will receive an SMS before we arrive – asking if you’ve travelled overseas, experienced any symptoms or been in contact with anyone who’s had COVID in the past two weeks.
Here are the safety precautions we’re taking:
All workers wear masks, practise social distancing and follow strict hygiene policies. Everyone has access to plenty of PPE such as hand sanitiser, antibacterial wipes and masks.
Staff use QR codes to check in everywhere they go.
All employees and contractors are vetted before starting work each day, to make sure they’re not unwell. If they show any symptoms, we don’t put them on the job.
Anyone who’s recently been in contact with a COVID case (or travelled overseas) must provide evidence of a negative test before returning to work.
We’re conducting quotations over video now, when possible.
Our backup tree removal teams are isolated from other workers, to minimise disruptions to our services if any of our tree arborists are required to isolate.
Workers are strongly encouraged to get their COVID vaccine as soon as they’re eligible.
Sydney Tree Company will prioritise your health while maintaining or removing trees:
You may be tempted to try and fix the problem yourself, as you’re worried about the logistics surrounding lockdown.
Please don’t do this, as you would be risking your life. Tree removal is an incredibly dangerous job, even for experts who are trained in the field.
Always consult with a certified arborist, who can safely remove the tree for you, or find other solutions.
Sydney Tree Company has 20 years of experience.
Our qualified arborists handle everything from tree surgery and removals, to pruning and property care. We advise you on the best course of action and even walk you through the council approval process.
