We have equipment and experience to deal with the removal of trees, large and small, in open or enclosed areas.
Safety of ourselves, the public and your property is our highest priority. We can remove all waste generated by the removal of a tree, or process logs into firewood and brush into mulch for use in your garden.
We aim to leave minimal trace that we were even on site! Please see our gallery for images of our work.
At Treelands we donate a new native tree through Trees that count every time we remove a mature tree, and our customers also have the option to do the same. Our customers that choose to donate are entered into the Treelands Hall of Fame.
We quite often get approached about tree ‘topping’.
Although quite a loose term, it usually refers to removing large amounts of the canopy of a tree, without using correct (industry approved) pruning techniques. We will always aim to steer clients away from ‘topping’, and towards reduction pruning; why? See our FAQ on Why topping is bad for a tree. Canopy reduction involves pruning small to medium sized portions of the canopy extremities, whilst retaining a suitable growth point on the branch/es which are being pruned back. The amount which can be removed without detriment to the tree varies based on not only species but also each individual tree. The aim to achieve a tree which has similar or improved form, but slightly smaller. This technique is also used to reduce wind loading subsequent loss of limbs or portions of the tree. If you want a tree which is half of the size of your current one, that tree is probably not the ideal species for the site.
Often the first choice for sites where more filtered sunlight through a tree is desired. This is often because it is the easiest and cheapest option, and also can enhance the aesthetics of the tree. Light thinning is recommended but trees which have been heavily thinned can have issues further down the track.
It’s as simple as removing dead, diseased or dying portions of a tree. These can pose a hazard, especially in public or high traffic areas.
Often in young or semi mature trees, formative pruning is preemptive maintenance which aims to correct crown issues such as co-dominant (double) leaders, crossing or rubbing branches and so on. It is best to tackle these problems when a tree is young as they can have a much larger impact on tree structure and health at maturity.
Removal of mainly small (sometimes large) branches in the lower canopy. This often to improve clearance for people, vehicles, lawnmowers etc. Can also improve the aesthetics of a tree.
Fruit tree pruning:
From planting to maturity, regular pruning of fruit trees is key to promote good branch structure, as well as keep them healthy and keep the size manageable.
