Our Arborist Services
Removing tree roots after a tree has been felled (or has fallen naturally) can be a time-consuming and expensive business. In addition, root removal can leave a large hole, which many people don’t want on their property.
A good alternative is stump grinding. This procedure involves slicing away at the tree trunk until it’s at ground level. The stump grinder reduces the stump to small chips, which can be composted or which we can remove. Stump grinding reduces the chances of re-growth, as well as smooths out the stump. Over time, the roots will naturally decay.
Emergency Work and Insurance Claims
A sudden storm or some strong winds can be all that’s needed to cause a tree to fall, or start to shift dangerously. We are available 24 hours a day to deal with arboreal emergencies. If you’re concerned about a tree fall, notice a tree is looking unstable or have any other concerns, we can come out and take a look at it.
In particular, if you notice a tree that’s close to your property shows signs of instability, it’s important to contact us as soon as you can. Our team will be happy to come out and inspect the tree, as well as complete any work that’s needed to render it safe.
Dead Wooding & Pruning
Over time, many trees have branches or shoots that gradually die back. This may be due to disease, damage or natural wastage. Left unchecked, this dead wood can become unstable, increasing the risk of a sudden branch fall in windy weather.
Summerland Tree Services is able to come out and remove deadwood from almost any tree. This not only makes the tree safer, it also improves tree health and may even promote fresh, vigorous growth.
Pruning is a similar process but involves the carefully selected removal of the ends of live branches. If done correctly, this stimulates the tree to grow more vigorously. Pruning can also be used to shape the tree, remove unwanted height, or to ensure the tree doesn’t over grow in a particular direction.
If you’re looking for a natural weed repellent, aid to irrigation and soil stabiliser, mulch is the perfect choice. Made from small chips of wood, mulch is spread around the base of plants, shrubs or trees to reduce evaporation, prevent the growth of weeds and ensure precious soil isn’t blown or leaches away.
Mulch can also be used on borders, preventing the growth of weeds at the same time as providing an attractive backdrop for your bedding plants. The beauty of mulch is that it’s not only easy to apply, it’s also entirely natural and will decay into the soil over time, adding fibre and nutrients.
