Tree Felling and Removal in Kaiapoi
During the 2011 Christchurch Earthquake there was substantial damage to trees in Kaiapoi. There was stem snapping, limb snapping, damage to roots, trees that were left in a leaning position and trees that were simply tipped up.
Over 384 trees were removed from public land, private property and there are still some trees that have been left in a sorry state. Most of the urgent tree felling has been completed now.
Still, due to massive soil movement and shifts in the water table, many trees require remedial work and others unfortunately will eventually need to be removed.
If you have a tree that has to be felled in Kaiapoi because of the after-effects of the earthquake, or for any other reason, then you should contact a professional arborist who can advise you on your choice of options.
It may be that he can advise you on alternatives to felling that could be possible. If not, he can arrange the felling of the tree and its removal in a way that is both safe and have the least impact on the surroundings.
If the tree that has to be felled is in a less open position or confined space then we can dismantle the tree safely and efficiently.
Trees that have been damaged by natural disasters may have non-typical stresses and compression. These trees need an expert who understands trees and should not be attempted by any general contractor.
A professional arborist can tackle these jobs in the safest way and more efficiently than any old man with a chainsaw. They will, of course, leave the site looking tidy after they finish and advise on the best type of tree to replace the old one should you wish to do so.
