Chipping far outweighs the use of a skip bin or taking the material to the tip, and is usually more cost effective too! We can leave the chips on your site or we can take them away.

What can be chipped?

Chipping is most suitable for branches. We can also chip bamboo, hedge trimmings, palm fronds, and sliced palm trunks.

We cannot chip rubbish, flax, stumps and roots, soil, vines, succulents, composted material, timber, building materials, stones, concrete or similar.


Trying to compare hourly rates for chipping is problematic due to variations in crew numbers and machine size. A full crew feeding a large chipper are likely to process 10 times as much material per hour as the same crew feeding a small chipper.

There is no hourly rate for chipping. We will assess the job and give you a written quote so there are no surprises.

“…. I can not speak highly enough of the professionalism and efficiency of the crew. The tree work was not straight forward, however it was clear from the outset that the crew had taken the time to think through the logistics and details of the job…..”

“Great job by the Tree King lads removing our enormous Washingtonian palm and tidying up the trees on our section. Arrived exactly on time, job was completed quickly and to a very high standard. Would definitely recommend them and will be using their services again in the future :)”

“We have been working with Tree King for the last five years.  During this time we have found them efficient, co-operative and very safety conscience during any tree removal.  They are polite and professional to deal with.  We thoroughly recommend Tree King and its staff for a great job well done.”
