What Is A Tree Removal? 

How Is A Tree Removed? 

While it may seem like a simple task, Auckland tree removal requires very acute attention to detail. When A1 Sure Services arrives on your property, we will first have a thorough inspection of the site to understand the situation and see what barriers we need to consider. For example, the tree’s stability and complexity of root systems are taken into account before we proceed with any tree removal. 

While we complete all jobs in a timely manner, we always gives our customers the opportunity to receive a free no-obligation quote for their job. Typically, we can be on-site within 48 hours of the enquiry. What do we take into account? We observe the height of the tree along with the size of the trunk. Depending on the safety of the tree and site, we will make a determination on whether tree removal or tree felling is more appropriate.

Our highly experienced and qualified arborists will begin their tree removal by climbing to the top of the tree. Here, they will begin a meticulous process of cutting down the tree from the top. Removing the tree in sections from the top allows for a clean and safe process. Safety is of paramount importance whenever we conduct work on private or commercial property. 

Once the tree has been removed, a stump will remain. Here, we utilise our state-of-the-art technology to get rid of the stump once and for all. How do we do this? We use our high-tech stump grinding and stump removal equipment to make quick work of any residual stumps.

How Do I Know If I Need A Tree Removed?


As one of the more common reasons we get called to remove a tree, disease or decay is always a problem. Like humans, trees and bushes can suffer from infections that ultimately kill them. If a tree is too far gone from decay or disease, it will need to be removed. 


Auckland is currently experiencing quite volatile weather. With several major storms occurring in 2023 alone, we always encourage our customers to utilise our 24/7 Emergency Tree Removal service if they are ever concerned. Storm damage to a tree can happen quickly and on many occasions, require immediate attention. 


When trees are planted near one another, it can lead to intense competition for vital resources like water, nutrients, and sunlight. As a consequence, these trees may suffer from poorer health and increased vulnerability to diseases and decay. To enhance the overall well-being and longevity of your trees, we can selectively remove trees to eliminate this competition and increase the overall aesthetic of your land.
