Tree Felling

We are a fully accredited and certified Tree Felling company. Our staff is all professionally trained and adhere to safety regulations. Equipment is rated to safe working loads, and never pushed beyond its limits.

Every cut performed is cut in the correct way (45 degrees on the branch collar of the tree). We stress the importance of safety. Our climbers are securely roped with professional knots. Heavy branches are always rigged and roped on every cut.

Friction devices and slings are used to minimize the effect that the ropes have on the bark of the tree.


Pruning of trees is probably the most important of all tree maintenance practices.

Correct pruning can do much to reduce the effects of storm damage and prevent insect and disease problems.

Properly pruned shade trees will normally remain healthier and longer than uncared for trees. Insect problems and wood decay often enter a tree through a dead branch or wound. We at Arbor Ascent specialise in pruning trees correctly which minimizes the chances of infections and diseases.

In some situations a tree sealant is required for health growth. We do a health evaluation on every tree.


Transplanting a tree is a very involved process. One of the most important factors when considering transplanting is the new location of the tree. We carefully dig around the tree to ensure that the original soil is kept intact on the root ball. Lateral roots are carefully cut. The “root-ball” is then secured and tightly bound. The tree is then placed on a skid and carefully moved to its new location, where a new hole has been prepared. The tree is then carefully placed in the new hole with all relevant nutrients and malsh required.
