Professional Tree Felling & Tree Removal Christchurch
Have you a tree that needs to go? Maybe you need an area cleared and looking the best it can be? If so, you are in the right place.
As professional arborists, we love trees, but occasionally there comes a time when they have to go. When that time comes, you need an expert to carry out the work, both safely and professionally. Tree removal can be dangerous, even with smaller trees. A professional arborist is the trained person that you need for this challenge.
Removing a tree is not a decision that you should make on a whim. It should be a decision made after considering all the factors. You may wish to fell a tree because it is dead, dying or a potential hazard to your property.
Trees like this pose a safety concern for the property owner as they could cause injury to passers-by. There would also be an aesthetic reason for removing a dead tree.
We often get called to remove healthy trees as well. There are many reasons for removing a tree. It could be interfering with buildings, a driveway, cables from utilities or you simply want it gone.
Where a tree is on or near a property border, the removal of the tree can lead to disputes and even legal action. It is crucial to plan this removal with the knowledge and cooperation of the neighbour.
If uncertain whether the tree really has to go, talk to your arborist, and seek advice. Felling trees can be dangerous so it is important that you get help from a certified arborist and ensure it is done safely.
Trees and shrubs that border public footpaths and roads in Christchurch have to be appropriately maintained, and any overhanging growth over a path has to be cut back up to a height of 2.5 metres. If the growth overhangs the road, it must be cut back up to a height of 5 metres above the road. Christchurch regulations also relate to trees that obscure road signs or impede waterways as well.
If vegetation grows through the fence, it should be cut back to the property line. As professionals, we can ensure that your property adheres to all Christchurch regulations.
