Tree Removal

Specialising in arboriculture has allowed us to refine our tree removal techniques and develop very efficient practices with high work standards, quicker turnarounds and often a sharper price!

The full removal of a tree may be required for any number of reasons. In many areas of Auckland medium to large trees still require resource consent to be granted before they can be removed.

We recommend you take a minute to read over our Tree Protection Laws section. In the event that your tree requires consent. We are often able to arrange consent free of charge depending on the specific situation. Contact us now for a free quote>

Sectional Felling

We can remove trees even when near delicate objects such as glass roofs and greenhouses using sectional felling. We have the ability to use a number of different rigging methods to lower branches while sectional felling. Our specialist knowledge of techniques allows us to pick the most appropriate one for your situation. This saves you both time and money.

Crane Removals

Tree removal via crane is a variation of sectional felling where, rather than lowering each piece with ropes and pulleys, the cut pieces are lifted out with a crane. By utilising a crane, much larger pieces can be removed with each cut making it a lot faster. The pieces can then be lifted over obstacles, such as buildings and fences, and safely placed in a convenient area for processing.

Although cranes can be relatively expensive, the time they save can make them worth considering. The use of a crane also increases worker safety, minimises clean-up requirements and can allow very large trees to be removed with absolutely zero damage to even the most delicate gardens. In some situations a crane is the only option.

Straight Felling

Contrary to popular belief, straight felling (dropping the entire tree in one piece) is not used that often due to the potential damage it can do to the surroundings. Although this is by far the quickest method in some situations, Tree King arborists only utilise it when there is zero risk of property damage. To aid control we will often use guide ropes, winches and felling wedges. This ensures the tree will fall exactly where it needs to go.

Happy Clients

We had Tree King remove and stump grind a couple of mature queen palms. They were located at the back of the property and one was up on a bank and hard to get to. The guys did a great job without damaging any of the surrounding garden, fence or our roof! Communication was excellent, both in relation to the initial quote and arranging a time to do the job. Would highly recommend.
