It may be your first time, or you have a lot of experience dealing with an Auckland arborist. Regardless, knowing when to contact an arborist is essential to keeping your trees healthy and safe. Before you reach out, however, you’ll need to ensure that you are enquiring about the services of a fully-qualified and insured tree services company.

As a simple checklist of what to look out for, this blog will outline the key points when hiring a tree professional. There may be factors you haven’t considered; regardless, you should know the key indicators of a skilled Auckland tree arborist.


Check Your Property To See Which Trees Require Services

While this may seem like a basic and almost unnecessary task, trees are not something you look at every day. You may, however, notice that one of the trees on your property is beginning to decay, or the growth may be excessive. Decaying trees particularly can be infectious for other nearby trees and bushes.  It’s vital that you note down the trees of interest so that when a trained Auckland arborist visits your property, they can give their best advice. 

Additionally, you may be tempted to DIY some aspects of tree services, but this is not advised. Arborists go through several years of training to ensure they understand the best practices for tree care. You may unknowingly cause more damage if you remove or alter the tree from its current state. 


Check If Your Auckland Arborist Is Certified For Tree Services

For an arborist to be considered fully-qualified, they must have certifications in arboriculture. At A1 Sure Services, all of our arborists are qualified and have a thorough knowledge of many tree species across Auckland. Whether you’re in the North Shore or Papakura, our team is very aware of common (and rare) tree species.

Why is this important? Isn’t it as simple as cutting trees down? There is far more to tree services than cutting them down. Trees have varying shapes, sizes and build – some are easier to service than others, but we strongly recommend that you don’t take tree matters into your own hands. 

Furthermore, you should be aware of tree service companies that hold public liabilities insurance. This unique insurance protection protects customers for all of our services. A1 Sure Services has coverage of up to $2,000,000, which gives our customers total peace of mind. 


Does The Auckland Tree Service Company Share Your Values? 


While delivering the best possible results is of the utmost importance to A1 Sure Services, we also hold safety in the highest regard. We always inform our customers that it’s best to leave the technical work to us. Tree services can involve soaring heights, heavy wood and dangerous machinery. As a result, there are several potential hazards that are present whenever tree-related tasks are carried out. 

Alongside the safety, you should also find an arborist that places value and respect for the environment within their ethos. All of our highly-trained arborists conduct themselves in a way that is respectful to the customer and their land.

Lastly, but definitely not least, our extensive collection of vehicles and state-of-the-art equipment makes us the best choice for any job. No task is too large or small; we have the appropriate resources to tackle any job thrown at us – and to a high standard.

You may be developing your land for a new project or just concerned about the health of one or more of your trees. Either way, A1 Sure Services has over two decades’ worth of experience, making sure customers receive the best service in the business.
