Tree Care - Trimming and
Removal of dead and decaying branches from the tree to minimise the risk of
damage to property/injury to people. A common practice on natives.
Crown - Canopy Thinning
Increase light and reduce wind resistance by selective removal of branches
throughout the canopy of the tree. This is a common practice which improves
the tree's strength against adverse weather conditions as the wind can pass
through the tree resulting in less "load" being placed on the tree. Often done
on eucalypts and species where the opportunity to reduce branch length is
Crown Canopy Lifting
Removal of lower branches. Increase clearance for property, people & vehicles.
Removals & Shaping
We can provide you with
all of your tree surgery
needs. We use the latest
techniques to safely
remove dangerous trees
so you will have peace of
When trees are too large to be felled from the ground they need to
be removed in sections.
Some methods are ...
A qualified climbing arborist will access the tree & fell the tree in
A climbing arborist supported by a ground crew will use ropes &
rigging to lower pieces.
EWP's, Cherry Pickers can be used.
Our training, qualifications & experience will determine the
methods used. We look at our 3 priorities when deciding to ensure
SAFETY AND EFFICIENCY.
Tree Removal In Confined
After removal of the tree, stumps are cut off as close to ground
level as practicable.
A machine called a stump grinder can grind the stump down to a
certain depth. This may be required so you can...
Replant over it
Pave or concrete over the area
Asthetics, so unsightly stumps aren't seen
Alternatively an excavator or backhoe can dig the stump & root ball
out. This may be an option where increased depth is required or
roots need to be extracted.

One man operation
Unlike trees the trunk of a palm stays the same
diameter for it's entire life. As palms grow taller
more force is placed on the root system where
it meets the ground. Roots work in tension
only like ropes. Of most importance is the
roots on the outside circumference, they do the
most work just like guy wires on an aerial or
tent. If this outer area is diminishing, or the
palm looks like it's being pumped up out of the
ground then it's stability is certainly

to pick up big logs,
clean up after stump

jobs it is used to
spread mulch on
garden beds, clean
up yards and
rubbish. Yards can

All trees removed and
Poinciana canopy lifted
Canopy lifts are used to reduce the
risks of large branches snapping from
trees during storms and high winds.
This technique is also more beneficial
to the overall health of the tree.
Canopy lifts don’t have any re-growth
problems that can occur with other
