At Tree Essence we love trees! We use our professional arborist knowledge to assist homeowners manage all aspects of their tree maintenance. In doing so, our clients get to enjoy the grand benefits of trees, do their part for the environment and live safely. It’s for this reason that we proudly call ourselves arborists in place of tree loppers.
That being said there is still plenty of work we do that includes tree lopping, tree removal and land clearing. Such as the case with a recent tree lopping job at Broadbeach.
We had been called to make an assessment on removing a dead Gum Tree that was suspected to be in danger of falling with threat to life and property. The age old title for Gums as “widow makers” definitely applied here, as the tree was located in the yard of a family home.
The additional challenge was that the structural integrity of the tree was questionable and restrictive location for the tree negated the ability to use a crane. It then posed the question about how to safely and surgically remove the tree.
Our expertise for tree climbing and the nearby location of another healthy gum provided the solution.
Using our expert arborist techniques we were able to use the nearby tree effectively as a rigging point. Using ropes, pulleys and a great deal of care we were able to selectively dismantle the dangerous dead gum, lower limbs and trunk sections to the ground. From there the dead sections were further dissected so they could be processed through our chipper.
It’s all in a day’s work for Tree Essence, arborists servicing the Gold Coast, Tweed and Byron region with expert care and high quality service.
