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. 

Methods for tree removal

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. 

Reasons for tree removal

There are many different reasons we may recommend removing a tree. This largely depends on the safety and health of the tree. Dead trees pose a health and safety risk to people and vegetation surrounding it. This is for one of two reasons: the tree may fall because it has lost its structural integrity or the tree may begin to decay or rot. Decaying or rotten trees encourage pests and disease to enter the tree. This can turn hazardous when it starts to spread. 

Large, defective or damaged trees also pose a health and safety risk. Branches or the entire may fall down and injure someone or cause irreversible damage to property and the surrounding area. This could be damage to driveways or to entire buildings. 

Alternatively, you may wish to remove a tree for aesthetic reasons or to clear land to create space for new plantings or new development. Regardless of your reasons, many tree removals are complex and mistakes are very costly, which is why it’s important to get a professional arborist in Auckland for the job. 

Tree maintenance

Tree care is the best method for reducing and preventing trees from having to be removed. 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 which may accelerate the decay of 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. Tree care is especially important after a storm.
