When most people think of an Auckland arborist, they imagine a lumberjack-like operation where trees are cut down. While this can represent a lot of arborist jobs, there are several other areas of tree work that make arborists versatile. This blog will outline the interesting services offered by A1 Sure Services that may surprise you. 

When trees are removed, the job is far from done. Additionally, there are several by-products that result from a fallen tree. When further work is done, a fallen tree can provide the perfect tree mulch and firewood

Lastly, we will also go through the final stage of tree removal – stump grinding and removal. At A1 Sure Services, the job isn’t finished when the tree is cut down – but instead, when the stump and accompanying roots are also gone. 


What Normal Tree Services Do A1 Sure Services Provide? 

Before we explore the lesser-known skills of A1 Sure Services, we should first outline our main speciality. Tree care is our main focus. We consistently strive to give our customers the best service possible in ensuring that their trees remain healthy. 

These services include tree trimming and tree pruning. While there is an aesthetic benefit to getting your trees trimmed or pruned, we also advise these tasks are done as they are an excellent means of ensuring tree health. On the flip side, if a tree is beyond saving, our state-of-the-art technology and 20+ years of experience will make quick work of your unwanted tree. We excel in tree removal and tree felling services on both residential and commercial properties. 


Can A1 Sure Services Have A Tree Stump Removed? 

Absolutely. We always give our customers the option to have their tree stump removed or ground after we have removed a tree. While we do admit there are potential uses for a tree stump, we understand that most property owners believe them to be eyesores. Our industrial-grade machinery will make quick work of your tree stump. 

We offer tree stump removal and stump grinding services. Typically, we will use one method over the other depending on the situation. A smaller tree can likely be removed without a grinder.

Conversely, if a tree is too large, ripping it out of the ground may cause damage to the earth which is why we recommend grinding the tree down. There is a by-product of tree mulch that occurs when large tree stumps are ground. As a result, tree mulch can be used on your property for a variety of reasons. 


Can A1 Sure Services Provide Me With Tree Mulch?

Furthermore to the above, tree mulch is commonly overlooked but can be a beneficial feature for your garden. Made from wood, mulch can hold water far better than most materials. When mulch is laid over the top of the soil, it provides an added layer of both hydration and protection for the plants/trees. 

Additionally, you may be frustrated with the extent of weed growth in your garden. Luckily for you, tree mulch is an excellent suppressant of weed growth. Applying a healthy layer of mulch to a desired area will decrease the rate of growth as the mulch blocks the sunlight from aiding the weed flourishing.

Can A1 Sure Services Provide Me With Firewood? 

Firewood at A1 Sure Services is as common as bark on a tree. We pride ourselves on supplying customers with dry high-quality wood which is the result of trees we have recently removed. Commonly, our “hot mix” will include mixes of both typical and native tree varieties. 

The three main types in the mix are Pine, Macrocarpa and Gum but there will also be other types of arborist-removed trees within the mix. The wood has been split and stored on-site and will be ready for burning this winter. We advise that customers purchase during summer or spring as these are typically the drier months which allow you to store appropriately and decrease the risk of dampness.
