There are several occasions when trees will need to be felled; when a tree is dying, becomes dangerous or has become too large for the space it was intended. Our qualified team have the experience and equipment to safely remove all types of trees even those in confined spaces.
Tree dismantling in confined spaces is a specialist job and should only be undertaken by a qualified Arborist with a ton of experience. The lead arborist has over 20 years’ experience in this field and together with his team knows how to safely dismantle a tree in the toughest of locations.
To keep trees in the best health and shape regular pruning is advisable. Trees can die, become diseased, get crossed or torn branches and become dangerous to your family or property. By applying good pruning techniques you can minimise the risk of this happening and keep your trees/shrubs in the best possible shape and appearance. Pruning can also provide many other benefits to your property and landscape such as increased light, more space and a better view.
Range of pruning services include:
Fine Pruning – removing small limbs to improve the trees health and appearance.
Standard Pruning – involves more branch removal and heavy pruning, usually done to improve the tree’s branch structure and appearance.
Hazard Trimming – removing deadwood, hanging or torn branches, decayed and dangerous branches or branches interfering with power-lines that may pose a safety risk.
Crown Reduction Trimming – usually involves the removal of major branches and is generally done when there is storm damage, interference to power lines and or dieback.
Crown raising – removing lower branches to raise the tree’s canopy, gaining light vision and height under tree. Creating clear-wood for mill-able timber.
Crown thinning – removing selected branches through-out the tree’s canopy to gain light view and airflow. Generally, no more than 25% of tree’s canopy.
View shaft – Another option is to create a view shaft, removing certain branches obscuring a part of your view, so you can see through the tree. With some trees you may be able to do 2 or 3 view shafts.
Hedge trimming – we can do regular trimming to keep your hedges in top shape – maintaining your view and privacy.
Power-line clearance – we are trained and certified to clear power-lines on Waiheke Island. It is the house owner’s responsibility to maintain their trees if they are in close proximity to power-lines.
Pruning around power-lines can be very dangerous without insulated tools and equipment and a good knowledge of how to do the required job safety. Electricity doesn’t make mistakes, it will take that path to earth 100% of the time. Call the professionals at Waiheke Arborist & Tree Care to book your area in, and work with your neighbours to reduce power interruptions with the next big storm .
Fruit tree pruning – generally to gain light and airflow, reducing branches to flowering buds to promote a good yield of fruit, thinning, removing crossing branches and epicormic growth.
In order to leave your property clean and tidy, chipping and mulching is carried out with most jobs. This involves chipping the limbs and branches and removing any brushes. If there is large waste that needs to be removed from the site; this can be done at a competitive price.

Stumps can take years to rot away and therefore cause problems for property owners with lawn mowing or garden plans.
