Taking Down a Tree

Trees that are dying from disease or old age can become dangerously unstable. They present a debris hazard to property owners, tenants and guests along with harbouring nesting places for animals such as possums. Moreover, extreme weather events can do irreparable damage to an otherwise healthy tree in a very short period of time. Left unchecked, unmanaged growth endangers structures both above and below ground.Our climbing arborists scale the tree using a proper rigging system. From the crown, we can control the direction and placement of falling limbs, while the cable system keeps our climbers safe. We systematically remove portions of the tree, taking it apart piece by piece until even the largest tree has been safely dismantled. Controlling the demolition this way not only enables us to ensure the safety of our climbers, we also preserve the integrity of your grounds, preventing expensive damage from uncontrolled extraction. Except for the missing tree, you wouldn’t believe we were ever there.
