One of the main tree services we provide is tree removal in North Shore and Auckland-wide. The removal of a tree is often a very lengthy process that requires specialised machinery. Here at A1 Sure Services, we utilise the most modern techniques to access any tree whether it’s leaning against a house or dangerously close to powerlines. 

Reasons for tree removal

There are many different reasons someone may wish to remove a tree: 

  • The tree has died or is too big
  • The tree is infested with disease and/or pests
  • The tree is dangerous or defective
  • The tree needs to be removed to create space for new plantings or new development
  • The tree is causing damage to driveways and buildings
  • Unstable and may fall over in high winds and bad weather

How are the trees removed?

There are two main methods used for removing trees. Tree felling is frequently used as a method and involves cutting the tree at the very base to control the direction it falls and using modern equipment to make sure this fall is done safely. This method is used most often in logging. However, this can only be done in very specific conditions where a significant amount of falling space is on offer and there are no livestock, people, vegetation or buildings close by.

The second technique is to segment the trees and use highly specialised rigging to systematically control the way the segments of the trees fall. This involves chopping the branches off one by one till all that is left is the trunk. This trunk is then chopped down in sections to be slowly lowered down. 

At A1 Sure Services we know exactly how to deal with decaying or large trees and can safely lower down heavy sections of wood in the easiest way possible. 

Tree maintenance

Most arborists in Auckland agree that regular tree care is the best method for reducing and preventing trees from having to be removed or becoming a hazard. This involves regular tree trimming and monitoring the health of the tree to ensure it will not become a danger to property or passers-by. This includes assessing the age of a tree and the quality of the wood. It also involves analysing the number of pests living in the tree. This will all decide whether it is required to remover the tree.  

Storms with high winds and rain loosening the soil can sometimes cause damage to tree branches or roots, causing a healthy tree to become a hazard. In this case, emergency tree removal may be recommended. If it is simply the branches that are affected, then we may alternatively recommend tree trimming in Auckland and the North Shore. Tree care is especially important after a storm.
