Richmond Tree Removal
Nestled in the breathtaking footholds of the Blue Mountains, Richmond is home to diverse native wildlife and fauna. From an aerial point of view, you get a glimpse of the outstanding plant life unfolding. Both High Point Trees and the Hawkesbury City Council recognize the biological and aesthetic value of plants in our everyday lives. This is why the city has enforced strict laws governing how and when a tree can be removed.
