    VIDEO: removal of storm damaged gum tree

    Check out this tree removal video of a gum tree that was damaged by a recent storm.
     
    The tree was a large Corymbia intermedia or “Pink Bloodwood”.
     
    Unfortunately the tree had been stressed for a number of years and was under fungal attack and borer attack.
     
    The nail in the coffin for this tree was being struck by lightning recently and it had a large crack down one side and the typical leaf necrosis was setting in so it was definitely time for the tree to be removed as a matter of safety due to the trees close proximity to the pool.
     
    Storm damage tree removal is one of the many tree services we provide so we were quick to get into gear to get the job done. As we head into peak storm season, make sure you’re storm ready – check out our guide on How to pack a storm emergency kit.
     
    We were able to provide a quote that was significantly cheaper then our competitors.
     
    This is because we have a skillful team (not a one man or 2 man outfit), a 22m crane truck and proper equipment that allowed us to remove this tree in only 2 hours, whereas a standard 4 man truck and chipper crew would have taken an entire day and at a cost of approximately $4000. Ouch! Who has the time or money for that?
     
    Another happy customer taking a video of the North Brisbane Trees team in action on Friday. “I just want to say thanks for the exceptional and professional job”.
    Trust only us to get the job done quickly, cheaply and cleanly – Call -7 3289 3610.

    Tree removals and tree lopping are best carried out by professionals with strong knowledge and public liability insurance.

    These trees hacked by Energex contractors in Brisbane deserve better!

    We recently read about Brisbane trees being ‘hacked’ by Energex contractors (by Ruth McCosker, Brisbane Times) and we felt as respectable tree professionals, we had to speak out. We share a grave concern for the welfare of the trees and the community that is impacted by this general lack of concern shown by Energex contractors when it comes to tree pruning and removals across Brisbane.

    Should home septic treatment system sprinklers be located close to large trees?

    No!   

    Unless you want your septic system to be overrun with roots, blockages and potential damage to the pipes.  The nutrient rich wastewater would only encourage the trees roots system to grow at a faster rate than normal which can cause problems.  Depending on what pathogens or chemicals are used in your septic system you also have the potential to negatively impact your trees.
