Consider the Trees


Many homeowners fail to look at surrounding foliage and trees as part of the total cost of their home remodelling… But it’s important to consider! If you are embarking on an extension, introducing new spaces or building a granny flat, chances are, you will need to clear your land of existing trees. But doing this isn’t as simple as hiring an arborist to get the job done. If you have gum trees around your block, you will need approval granted for their removal. Their costs are also something to consider. A 7-year-old gum tree can cost nearly $23K to move! Before you move forward with your project, make note of any residing trees around your block and determine whether your budget has the allowance for their removal.
