Do you need tree felling or tree removal in Rangiora?

We are professional arborists and can assist you in the safe and efficient felling and removal of the tree. The public needs to be aware that the removal of even smaller trees is something that needs to be done by a professional to ensure the safety of the tree feller and to eliminate the possibility of damage to neighbouring trees, buildings, or boundary fences.

It is essential to understand that the removal of a tree can also have legal implications. Taking down a tree on or near a boundary is a potential minefield and should be done with the full agreement of the neighbour. Prior consultation can save disputes in the future.

An unqualified tree feller could bring the tree down and cause damage and is unlikely to be insured to cover the costs of repairs and compensation. If the tree is anywhere near utility cables, this must also be a consideration. If there is the slightest chance, the tree could hit the lines; then, the utility company must be notified before the tree is felled. A professional arborist will have the training and experience to bring a tree down precisely where they need it to fall, avoiding costly repairs and possible litigation.

At this point, we should step back and consider why the tree is going to be felled. Is that the only possible solution? A professional arborist may have other options that you could consider, depending on the individual tree.

Rangiora has many beautiful trees, and this is part of what makes it such a great place to live. King Street, for example, has a wealth of trees in the various residences, as you drive down the road you see many varieties of trees, and at certain times of the year, there is green and red foliage bordering the road.

Imagine driving down the same route with no trees, just stark buildings lining the road. Arborists are not just for felling trees. They can keep trees healthy, provide support when needed by cabling and other methods. Arborists can identify potential health issues with a tree and prevent them from dying.

Pruning can make the trees even more attractive and also avoid you falling foul of the law if they overhang footpaths and highways. Correct pruning, rather than someone hacking at the tree, can help the tree develop into an asset to your property that will increase the value of your house. Pruning incorrectly can stunt the development of the tree and spoil its natural shape.

You have heard the expression that “money doesn’t grow on trees,” but in some ways it does. Independent research has shown that a tree in your front garden can add up to NZ$11,000 to the value of your house. Employing a professional arborist to maintain these assets makes sound financial sense. If the time comes when, unfortunately, a tree does need to be felled, an arborist can do it professionally and without financial risk
