A-Local Tree Service for your Tree Removal Brisbane Southside

Each tree removal case is different. Tools and processes chosen for the removal will depend on the severity of the tree’s health and the placement of surrounding properties and local council infrastructure. We generally conduct tree removals in four steps:

Tree Pruning

Pruning is a step commonly used in tree maintenance, where smaller parts of the tree are removed. Trimming and branch removal however, can also assist in the process of getting a tree removed. Large machinery such as a crane or cherry picker can be used the pruning process to gain height to remove parts of the tree.

Tree Felling Brisbane Southside

Tree felling is the most recognisable part of the tree removal process where the trunk is collapsed. It can be tricky and dangerous to perform if not skilled and experienced. Like in tree pruning, a cherry picker or crane may be required to remove trees from difficult locations such as narrow spaces between power lines.

Stump Grinding

Once the branches and the trunk of the tree have been removed, the stump is all that remains. Stump grinding involves grinding the stump down so that the grass can grow it, without a chance of regrowth or a white ant infestation. Care is taken during this process to avoid damage to any underground hidden wires, pipes or systems.

Wood Chipping & Mulch

We recycle all tree products from the tree removal process into mulch. Depending on the project, this can include the fallen tree branches and trunk, as well as the tree stump. On request, we can provide your removed tree’s mulch to you at no cost for your future landscaping projects.

What Can Tree Removal Specialists Help Me With?

Trees are a nice addition to any property. Whether you’re making landscaping changes to your home property, or adding a touch of greenery to a commercial property – plants and trees offer an eye-pleasing change in colour and texture, as well as a breath of fresh air, from the brick and concrete walls of surrounding buildings. Tree care, or in some cases tree removal is important in the maintenance of this aesthetic and functional addition.

It is best practice for tree removal services to assess whether your tree requires removal, or whether it can be restored through other means. At A-Local Tree Service, we ensure that your tree removal will only happen if you want it to, or if there are no other means to save your tree. Take a look at some common characteristics of a problematic tree that may require tree removal.

Dead Trees

tree trimming

Even a small tree can present a significant hazard once it dies. Without the structural integrity of a live tree, dead trees are extremely unpredictable and will not always fall into a safe area of your yard.

Organising a tree lopper professional service to cut down and remove the tree is the best way forward. Having the tree removed completely is the only option for dead trees. The best solution is to organise the removal early on as they pose a greater risk to surrounding life, property and local council infrastructure such as power poles the longer they are left standing.

Damaged & Decaying Trees

Tree wounds can be caused by natural breakages, gardening equipment, storm damage and more. The severity of damage can vary widely from small scratches to completely toppled trees. In the case of fallen trees, the tree carcass & stump removal and stump grinding may need to be organised by professional services.

Whilst minor tree wounds are harmless, tree decay is a serious issue. Tree decay is a result of a wood-decay fungi entering a tree through a tree wound, weakening the tree. Tree fungus can be treated to remission, however it can never fully be cured. Therefore, addressing tree wounds and tree decay in their early stages through pruning services can help preserve its health.

Overcrowded Trees

Having too many trees growing within a limited space can reduce the amount of sunlight and nutrients the tree can access. This leads to the stunted growth of other trees or plants in your backyard or garden. Pruning or tree lopping are two methods tree maintenance companies use to reduce the shade of one or more trees covering other plants.

Overgrown Trees

Whilst tree removal often involves a weak or dying tree, sometimes your tree might be a little too healthy. This can cause a string of problems of its own, however can usually be maintained with regular pruning done independently or through a tree work services company. Whilst the removal of these trees might not be a necessity as such, it can remove any safety risks they may present, and potentially increase house and property prices.

Depending on the severity of the obstruction, risk or disruption created by the overgrown tree, you or your tree removal service provider may choose to trim or prune some small branches, remove larger branches or tree limbs through tree lopping or simply remove the entire tree.
