Tree Felling & Tree Removal

You may have noticed one or multiple trees on your property that are dead, dying or ruining the land’s aesthetic. You don’t need to dread the tree removal process as A1 Sure Services offers advanced tree services backed by over 20 years worth of experience. But what exactly is tree removal, and how is it related to tree felling?

Tree removal speaks to the method of removing the tree from the ground – it has the same result as tree felling, only the tree is removed chunk-by-chunk from top to bottom. Tree felling is the more “traditional” method of removing trees where the tree is expertly cut near the bottom – allowing it to fall in a specific direction. This tends to be an effective method if there is plenty of space in every direction – ensuring no one is hurt, and no property is damaged. 


Tree Trimming

Tree trimming is one of the most common methods of tree maintenance carried out. This is the process where excess branches are removed to maintain regular shape and size for an aesthetically pleasing look. Although trimmed trees always look sharper than most other wild trees, they are also healthier. The unbalanced shape that can result if the tree is not trimmed can increase the likelihood of damage and disease. 

While this may seem like a simple process of cutting irregular branches, there is an art to tree trimming. Different methods can be used to achieve different purposes. Click here for more information on the different types of tree trimming. 


Tree Pruning

You may think tree pruning is the same as tree trimming, but they involve entirely different processes and techniques. Typically used to reduce the spread of disease and decay, tree pruning involves nipping in the bud. It’s essential to have an experienced arborist carry out your tree pruning. An Auckland arborist with several years under their belt will bring more than state-of-the-art equipment but an exceptional knowledge of tree species and health. We do not recommend to DIY your tree pruning as there are specific signs that rely on the expertise of a tree professional.  


Stump Grinding & Stump Removal 

Say you’ve had your tree removed, and there’s a big stump stuck in the ground – what do you do now? At A1 Sure Services, the job isn’t done until the entire tree is gone. There are two methods for getting the stump out of the earth – both of which require the knowledge of an experienced tree service company and reliable machinery. Stump grinding and stump removal refer to the methods most commonly used. 

For a broader discussion on the difference between the two methods, please read ‘Stump Grinding vs Stump Removal – What Is Best’. 


Stump Grinding: 

This method is self-explanatory; the stump is ground with one of our high-tech machines. The resulting mulch can then be used to fill in the hole which remains after the stump is destroyed. Click here for more information on how mulch can benefit your backyard or garden


Stump Removal: 

The stump can also be taken out the old-fashioned way. Stump removal is the process we employ to physically haul the stump out from the earth. 

By severing the surrounding visible roots, the tap root will then be exposed – this is the root which is the main root descending directly below. Here, the stump is able to be removed more efficiently as the main root will also be extracted and ensuring no further growth will occur.
