All types of Tree care

At Treby Tree Services, we offer a range of tree care jobs that help keep your yard in good shape. Tree care isn’t a specific service but rather the application of different methods depending on the tree’s health conditions. So, when you call us for tree care services, we apply tree maintenance approaches like tree trimming or pruning. In some cases, our tree surgeons may even recommend tree removal as an approach for yard maintenance as it helps preserve remaining trees and shrubs.

Thanks to years of experience in the arboriculture industry, we have the expertise to diagnose and address a number of tree issues. We’re also qualified to operate specialised equipment, which allows us to get the job done safely and efficiently.

Tree Trimming and Pruning

To keep your trees in great shape and prevent diseases from spreading, tree trimming and pruning are essential. Our skilled arborists carefully trim back extra-long branches to keep them from overgrowing and falling, which can result in damage. Tree pruning requires cutting dead or infected branches or sections to keep the disease from spreading further. Doing so encourages healthier growth in a specific direction and makes your trees resilient to storm damage.

Without regular pruning, trees are prone to pest infestations and disease. In some cases, however, trimming isn’t enough due to overgrown branches that could fall and cause damage. These situations call for comprehensive tree lopping. Our tree loppers scale the tree to cut off bigger sections and alter the tree’s shape entirely.

Tree Removal and Felling

As mentioned before, failure to employ regular tree trimming can cause structural problems. Over time, the only remaining solution to address a hazardous tree is tree removal. At Treby Tree Services, we use tree felling or removal depending on the size, species, and accessibility of the tree.

In tree felling, our arborists make a felling cut at the base of the tree so that it falls in a specific direction. However, this is reserved for cases where there’s plenty of space around the tree. When the tree is growing close to other structures like a property or power lines, we use a different tree cutting method. It involves scaling the tree and cutting it one section at a time, starting at the top.

Our tree removal process also includes securing permission from Onkaparinga council tree removal and cleaning up your yard. And if you’re dealing with hazardous trees, we offer emergency services as well.

Arborist consulting services

When you’re not sure why your trees are in poor health or need expert guidance on the best way to take care of them, our arborist consulting services can help. Our certified arborists have years of experience in diagnosing and treating both simple and complex tree issues.

In addition to providing tree maintenance Onkaparinga, Micham, and Marion residents rely on, our arborists also assist with tree selection and planting. We’re also aware of local regulations regarding tree removal, so we adhere to all applicable laws when providing appropriate tree care. Some of the services we provide include tree surgery, compiling arborist reports, and conducting hazard evaluations.

Our tree surgeons perform risk assessments before determining the right course of action for a specific tree. The issue can include pest infestation, diseases, or overgrowth branches that keep getting tangled up in powerlines. Based on our assessment, they decide whether tree surgery or tree removal is required.

Stump grinding and removal

Whether you hire tree removal services or your tree snaps because of storm damage, eliminating the stump is essential. Otherwise, you can end up with problems like pest infestations and trip hazards. Not to mention, your yard will look terrible. In most cases, we recommend stump grinding as a cost-effective and non-invasive approach. Our arborists use a stump grinder to grind down the base of the stump and top roots until it’s leveled.

While stump grinding is effective, it doesn’t remove the roots completely. This can be a problem if your reason for tree removal is that the roots have started causing damage to the property’s plumbing, wiring, and foundation. In this case, we provide stump removal services, which extract the roots as well.

Land clearing

In addition to offering tree maintenance Onkaparinga, Micham, and Marion residents can count on, we also provide land clearing services. We work with property developers, builders, and construction companies to clear the land on an undeveloped block and prepare it for further construction. Our crew is trained to operate state-of-the-art tools and equipment to remove all types of vegetation. This includes trees, brush, weeds, and stumps. And if you’d like to retain specific trees, we can do that, too.

Whether the project involves clearing a small residential site or a large commercial block, we adhere to current land clearing regulations. And thanks to our experience, we make sure not to disturb any vegetation located outside the designated area. After removing existing trees and brush from the area, we clean and level it so that it’s ready for development. If you’re working on a tight deadline, contact our team at Treby Tree Services to book safe and efficient block clearing services.

Tree maintenance FAQs

How often will I need tree maintenance?

How frequently your trees need maintenance depends on factors like the species, size, location, and overall health condition of your tree. Some species only require maintenance once a year, while others may not need maintenance until every third year. To determine how often you’ll need tree maintenance, it’s best to call in an arborist to evaluate your tree’s condition. They can recommend a maintenance and management schedule according to your trees’ needs.

Why do I need a professional for tree maintenance?

There are plenty of reasons we advise hiring a professional for tree maintenance and surgery. As licensed experts, we have the necessary training and qualifications to adhere to local regulations. We also have the industry knowledge to diagnose tree-related issues and recommend suitable solutions.

If you decide to try maintaining your trees without professional help, it’s likely that you don’t have the right tools. Licensed arborists use specialised equipment to get the job done quickly and safely. Thanks to their experience, they can use the right techniques and practices depending on the tree’s health and species.

Why do trees need to be removed?

There are various reasons you may need to remove a tree:

  • Diseased or decaying trees that can’t be repaired pose a safety hazard. These trees are susceptible to pest infestations and storm damage, which makes it necessary to remove them before they fall over.

  • Without appropriate maintenance, trees that grow close to a property or structure can end up causing damage. For instance, trees that grow too close to a property end up damaging the foundation. Similarly, tree roots can lift pavement, affect plumbing, and get tangled up in underground wiring.

  • Tree removal is required as part of a broader land clearing project or to make more space in your yard for an extension or renovation.

Other reasons include when trees block a sidewalk or driveway, causing a nuisance or potential trip hazard.

When are emergency tree services needed?

You need emergency tree services in the event that a tree has fallen in or around your property and is blocking a road or sidewalk. Similarly, it’s best to call emergency tree removal if you’re worried about a tree falling over and causing damage to your property. Our specialists at Treby Tree Services are fully equipped and available around the clock for emergency calls.

Do emergency tree services cost more?

Yes, emergency tree services cost more than scheduled jobs projects due to the urgent nature of the job. Moreover, emergency calls usually require more complex and dangerous tasks, such as tree removal during a storm. You can also expect to incur extra costs because of the team’s 24/7 availability since crew members have to stay back after hours to take emergency calls.

Another reason for the higher cost is that demand also increases during poor weather conditions. When a storm hits, it’s likely that many properties in a neighbourhood require urgent tree removal services to prevent trees from falling over in their garden. Despite the cost, it’s better to be safe than sorry. That’s why we urge property owners to call in specialists for emergency tree removal before someone gets hurt.

Can you help secure a permit from Onkaparinga council tree removal

Yes, our arboricultural experts can help you secure a permit for tree removal. All local councils have regulations regarding tree removal and the protection of native species. Therefore, property owners must obtain permission from the local council before removing any trees from their property. Without approval, you could end up facing major fines. We can conduct risk assessments and prepare arborist reports as part of the process for securing approval.
