Hiring an arborist in Auckland can be a daunting task and many often question whether it is necessary. Trees are an important staple in a garden. Providing shade, fresh air and even food they can be a welcoming attribution. Despite their many advantages, they can become threats to their surroundings if not properly maintained.

Regular tree care, proper pruning and tree removal can prevent such occurrences and are where a certified Arborist comes in. 

What are some hazards trees produce? 

  • Pests – Rotting trees can harbour pests with diseases that affect the health of those surrounding it. They thrive in wet conditions so it’s important to clear stumps and trees before winter. 
  • Unstable – Heavy rainfall and strong winds may loosen soil or damage both old and young trees. In this case, a tree may need emergency removal. If just the branches are affected we suggest tree trimming in Auckland and the North Shore. However, if significantly damaged, tree removal may be necessary.

Trees may also be removed, trimmed and pruned for aesthetic purposes. This may be to improve a view, remove a tree you don’t like and create your own garden oasis.  

Method of tree removal

One of the main services we offer is tree removal in the North shore or Auckland-wide. It is quite often a very lengthy process. However, our qualified team have methods they train in to make it as safe and efficient as possible.

Methods of tree removal:

  • Tree felling – One of the quickest and most efficient ways to remove a tree. Trees are cut at the base and allowed to fall safely using modern equipment. However, it is very difficult and dangerous in residential areas. 
  • Segment tree – This involves chopping large branches off and cutting the stump into sections to be lowered down. The rigging controls the way segments of the tree fall.
  • Stump grinding – This requires a stump grinder to grind the stump down to mulch which is much less stubborn to move.

Tree maintenance

Forms of tree maintenance
