Five ways to prepare for large tree removal in Auckland

Before Oakwood Treecare and Consultancy arrives at your home or business premises to carry out large tree felling and removal there are five things our arborists suggest you do:

  1. Park vehicles away from the tree
  2. Move the trampoline, climbing frame or children’s toys
  3. Remove small plants from near the base of the tree for replanting later
  4. Inform your neighbours of the tree removal
  5. Decide if you need a stump grinder. If you do, ask us about stump grinding prices.

Expert tree removal in Auckland

Large gum tree removal with Hiab on Mt Eden Road, Auckland
Fletcher Living contracted the arborist team at Oakwood Treecare and Consultancy for this large tree felling job on a building site. The tree removal work involved removing large branches and the tree’s heavy trunk with a Hiab crane.

Macrocarpa tree removal in residential Auckland 
Oakwood Treecare and Consultancy used a crane with a 24m reach and 5 tonne limit for this big tree removal job. The large macrocarpa was over the owner’s home as well as overhanging their neighbour’s roof. The size of the tree meant that felling involved removing limbs followed by sectional felling. Ordered dismantling of the tree is more complex with a spreading tree like a Macrocarpa – similar to taking it apart like a jigsaw.  Once the tree’s limbs were removed, the large sections of trunk wood were lifted onto the back of the truck by crane.

Norfolk Pine tree felling on Waiheke Island 

The arborists from Oakwood Treecare and Consultancy employed abseiling and staged dismantling to remove this 30 metre tall Norfolk Island Pine. Interestingly, Norfolk Island Pines are not protected trees on Waiheke. Located over subterranean water tanks, all of the branches of the pine had to be trimmed off before the trunk was cut into sections and lowered.

Besides tree removal and tree felling, Oakwood Treecare and Consultancy also provides other tree services throughout Auckland. Our arborists are here to help with expert tree stump removal or tree pruning in Auckland.

Auckland tree removal, tree felling & tree cutting FAQs

Do you provide help with resource consent for tree felling?
Yes. Oakwood Treecare and Consultancy can assist with resource consent. Often tree felling can be approved for safety reasons – or to let light or warmth into your home.

Does the tree species affect the likelihood of obtaining consent?
Yes – the arborists will advise you on the type of tree you need removed.

What does large tree removal require the arborists to do?
Large tree removal is all in a day’s work for the talented arborists at Oakwood Treecare and Consultancy. The arborist team employs sectional dismantling, specialised lowering ropes and tree climbing equipment such as harnesses on a daily basis. For demanding jobs, a hiab, crane or helicopter can be used.

Can I use the mulch on my garden? And what about the stump?
You may want to take advantage of our tree mulching service and put the wood chip on your garden, and we can help with stump grinding if the tree removal leaves unsightly stumps.

What specialist equipment is used?
We employ specialist arborist equipment including a large 15 inch chipper with a built-in winch that makes tree removal jobs efficient. If we are manually lowering large branches or sections of tree – a friction device called a port-a-wrap is used. This enables one arborist to lower very heavy pieces of wood (up to 1 tonne) with complete control.

What happens with large tree felling in residential areas?
Oakwood Treecare and Consultancy will often have to section fell the tree by removing all of the tree limbs systematically. Then the tree’s trunk is dismantled from the top down by cutting the tree into sections and lowering each section down one at a time. Ropes are used to control the branches and the rest of the tree as it is removed.

There is zero room for mistakes with large tree removal, and using a tree company with full insurance is a must. Contact Oakwood Treecare and Consultancy to organise an accurate quote.
