When you have vegetation that you need removed it is not a simple matter. You cannot call just anyone to remove a dead tree from your property. In order to get a tree removed you must work with a certified arborist. The requirements for arborist reporting in Brisbane are quite stringent. An arborist preparing the report to request removal must have an Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) Level 5 diploma.
Other needed qualifications include liability insurance of at least 10 million dollars and have a minimum of five years of post graduate study in the principles and practices of arboriculture. It is also recommended, though not required, that the arborist maintains membership in a professional organisation to demonstrate continued professional development.
Once you have decided on an arborist that meets the requirements for the report there are also minimums that must be met for the job to be carried out. Arborist reporting in Brisbane will not guarantee approval for the tree removal, but if your request is approved you will then need to hire a qualified arborist to proceed. In order to carry out the removal an arborist will need to have at least an AQF Level 3 diploma, 10 million in liability insurance and workers compensation insurance for all staff. Tree removal can be dangerous and more complex than it first appears. Only after ensuring that the company you have chosen is able to meet all required certification levels and you have received approval may you proceed with your tree removal project.
