For this latest job the view was spectacular looking out over the Mahurangi coast line, however the work below was one you needed to keep a very close eye on to avoid being spiked. Flame trees whilst beautiful with their lovely red flowers, sadly have very sharp thorns that can hurt for a few days after. This Flame tree reduction gave the customer restored views and increased light into their property.
Following a stormy night in level 4 lockdown a customer awoke to find that their tree had spilt at the rotten base and landed precarisly on the corner of the house. They called TreeZone to come and make it safe to avoid any further damage to their house. This was a tricky job that required balance and a cautious approach to keep the tree from moving further. Once the trees weight was removed and away from the house, the TreeZone team were able to come back in level 3 and complete the job.
Within the confined space of a shared driveway a large Pohutukawa tree was beginning to effect driveways, drainage, and light. This client wanted the tree removed, to allow for any damage to be repaired and the fence line to be restored. With the assistance of a hiab, TreeZone carefully lowered each limb, controlling the landing position in the tight working space.
Every so often TreeZone is asked to do some work which is slightly out of the ordinary. Whilst we specialise in the removal of trees in technical situations, it is not often that many of them are half way down a cliff.
Following one of Auckland’s many wet storms a tree that had been up on the top of the bank had been hammered by the storm and started to slip down the cliff. In this situation TreeZone was able to advise the client that the tree could be saved, allowing the roots to continue to stabilise the bank. Luckily TreeZone had the skills and capabilities to abseil down to the tree and take off the weight of many of the branches, leaving the tree secure and tidy. It was a tricky but interesting day for the team and a magic view!
This group of mature Radiata Pine trees were located above power lines on a residential street and were beginning to become hazardous. Due to the location above utility services and fencing we lowered the crown and main branches. We controlled this by using rigging ropes and lowering devices. For the main trunk we used a large Hiab crane to remove the stems in sections and cart them away for processing.
The difference in light and warmth to the two properties below where these trees had been was significant, and happy clients made for a great job.
TreeZone was called out after hours to an emergency job where a storm damaged tree was threatening the building below. On arrival we found the stormy conditions were causing the tree to continue to weaken and fracture the main stem. The area was cordoned off, staff were moved from the premise and quick work to secure the tree with bracing ropes, meant removal could begin safely.
This client had a large collection of rare and unusual Palm trees. One row of approximately fifteen Fan Palms had outgrown its position between a driveway and fencing and unfortunately had to come down.
Using a Hiab crane to lift out sections allowed us to remove them with minimal impact on the underlying plants and structures.
