An Arborist Talks about Tree Care.

It’s amazing how many times people have told me I bought this little plant from a nursery to screen the neighbours in the back of the yard. The plant was only supposed to grow to fence height.  Fifteen years later the seedling has turned into an 18 metre tree, then died… or a major limb is growing over the top of the roof and the owner is worried the branch may fall in a storm.  What makes things worse, in most cases there is limited access into the front yard and the back yard is only the size of a car parking space.

Green Works is one of the few tree care companies that have purpose bought a machine to access these sorts of specialist jobs in Queensland.  The machine fits through carports, through side gates and through narrow passages down the side of your home. We only need the size of a car parking space for the machine to be able to unfold and reach the height of just under 15 metres.

To remove a tree in a confined space they are dismantled – cut into small pieces, lowered and carried out to the truck and chipper.

We can also use the machine to access oversized hedges that are traditionally no longer possible to access. These are typically conifer and lillypilly screening hedges. Frequently the oversized hedge has been planted to screen out the property below but without regular maintenance is starting to block views.

A certified Arborist means that Green Works Tree Care meets Arboricultural Standards and is a a member of the Queensland Arboricultural Association Inc (QAA).

At Green Works, we take a lot of care to ensure your trees and garden are treated the way you would treat it yourself.

Arborist Tree Service Safest Option

Arborist Tree Service

Spider lift delivers safest option

Green Works is a South East Queensland tree services specialist for Government, Facility Managers, Body Corporates and discerning customers who appreciate high standards of arboriculture service.

Green Works provides innovative, confined height technologies combined with our trade qualified team ensuring a consistent quality, focused on our customers and industry compliant standards. Customers are assured of a friendly, fully insured safe service providing peace of mind.

Jason Crawshaw Managing Director of Green Works advised that he read about a court case released by Work Safe Victoria, 17 December 2012 which the Queensland Arboricultural Association referred to in an email sent to members. This particular case highlighted the importance of height safety.

As a result Green Works Government Customers became aware of their responsibilities to have a trade qualified climber and a trained rescue person on site. Whilst Green Works complied, the company questioned consistency of service, what happens when qualified personnel call in sick, resign or have to leave the site unexpectedly.

The feedback Green Works received from Government customers was the expectation of consistent compliance to ensure everyone is safe and they also not left in a position of potentially being legally liable. After applying the hierarchy of safety control measures to new technology, we discovered a mechanical device that could access confined spaces eliminating most of the higher risk human elements.

Green Works also realised that it is only a matter of time before domestic customers become aware that they are potentially financially at risk if something goes wrong and they too start considering this when evaluating a quote.

After 8 years of delivering professional services to Local Government, Green Works had to revaluate how it was delivering tree pruning, removal services at height. Practical considerations including having the ability to fit through a single gate, quick to set up, low maintenance costs, cutting edge safety technologies and height potential and restrictions were all considered. We purchased the Spiderlift as the fastest, safest option on the market today.

Arborist tree removal, what to do with a dangerous tree

Arborist Tree Removal

What to do with Dangerous Trees

Concerned about a dead or dying tree in your property? Trees can die for a lot of different reason. The most common are;

Phosphorus can have a detrimental effect on native trees. Often the source of this is recycled water being used on the lawn near the tree.

Soil levels have been altered, driving and parking on the root zone, excessive compaction.

Ring barking the tree from machinery such as brush cutters going too close to the truck of the tree.

Drought, Over fertilising, too much water … seen during the floods.

Local Government Authorities have by-law protecting trees. As such it is important to contact your local authority to see if the tree can be removed. Send them an email and ask for an email response to make sure it is ok to remove the tree.

Arborist’s are specialist in the cultivation and care of trees and shrubs, including tree surgery.

It important to use trade qualified Arborist that is experienced as a lot of the work is technical and physically challenging and could be dangerous in the hands of the unqualified.

When looking for an Arborist to remove a tree ensure they have a current workers compensation cover and public liability insurance.

Removing dead trees in confined spaces it is particularly important to use current technology. Frequently dead trees are structurally unsound and not safe to climb.

It’s always nice to find an enthusiastic person willing to have a go but remove dead trees is a high risk activity without the right equipment. Trying to climb dead trees puts the climber at risk but also you and neighbouring properties.
