TREE REMOVAL WITH CRANES
Sometimes using a crane is a cheaper, quicker and safer option to remove your tree.
After inspecting the size of your tree, its location and current state, we will advise if a crane is required. And don't worry, we can arrange the crane for you.
We have been working closely with certified crane companies who are familiar with tree removals for several years.
Depending on the state of your tree, removing it manually may be too dangerous for our staff, you and your property - this is where a crane is a must-have.
FORMATIVE TREE TRIMMING
Pruning trees while they are still young will save you time and money in the long run.
Establishing a good structure or primary branches while your tree is young means it will develop a strong framework that requires less corrective pruning as it features.
Getting in early encouraged sound trunk development and growth, and also provides an opportunity to remove any structural defects before they become bigger problems.
Pruning young trees is often referred to as 'training' while the tree is still in its growth phase.
The ability to shape the structural integrity of trees at a young age is equally known to make them more resilient to harsh weather conditions such as storms when they mature.
Do you have dead branches on your trees? If dead branches are not removed they can pose a serious risk to your property, particularly if they are hanging over your home.
Deadwood is simply nature's way of trees rejuvenating themselves. As trees grow they often shed their unwanted branches and replace them with new ones.
We can remove the dead branches from your tree to ensure your property is safe, your trees continue to grow to their full potential, and the natural aesthetics or your area is maintained.
Remember, don't wait for a storm to come through your property - be prepared by maintaining your trees and removing unwanted hazards.
Stump Flushing & Stump Grinding
If replanting a new tree is in your landscape plan or if you simply wish to have no remnants or your tree remaining, stump grinding is an option.
END-WEIGHT REDUCTION PRUNING
Is your tree starting to impede on nearby power lines, grow closer to your roof or block the sun from your favorite spot?
If there's one thing we know about trees, it's that they don't always grow how or where we want them to.
Weight reduction refers to reducing your trees through selective branch removal, while also maintaining its good health, natural form and structural integrity.
This corrective measure means you can continue to live harmoniously with your tree in the urban environment for many years to come.

CABLING AND BRACING / DYNAMIC AND STEEL CABLE BRACING AND FALL ARREST
Does your tree have dangerous limbs that are posing a threat to your property?
Sometimes due to the size of your tree we can’t remove the dangerous limbs without causing significant harm to your tree through heavy pruning or removing the tree entirely.
Cabling and bracing are techniques which allow us to provide a support system for your tree, while reducing the risk to your property and maintaining your tree’s health.
It uses other limbs as anchors, taking the weight off the weaker and more fragile ones.
We perform two different types of bracing:
1) The use of steel rods bolted into the tree to provide rigid support.
2) The use of a flexible nylon bracing system which is non-invasive and allows trees to move freely. However, this is not a fail-safe system as the bracing is not UV resistant, as such, we recommend annual inspections.
We can inspect your trees for structural weaknesses and recommend the best type of cable bracing to mee
