Professional Tree Service
Standards & Guidelines

Here's what you can expect from Overberg Arborists and what to expect when hiring our professional arborists to care for your trees.

2 Professional Arborists 

to service Your Trees

Overberg Arborists is operated through the partnership of André Pietersen and Kyle Joubert, two proud local Napier arborists.

Overberg Arborists has been growing as a successful tree care company in the Western Cape for more than 2 years.


Although, the Overberg Arborists team has a cumulative experience of 8+ years of tree felling, tree climbing, tree care, and tree removal services in the Overberg.


Our tree company began by doing tree work and tree removals in Napier, we quickly grew to care for trees all over the Overberg. We've serviced trees in Stanford, Bredasdorp, Hermanus, Elgin, The Ruens,  Swellendam, Riviersonderend, Kleinmond, and other areas.

We take pride in every tree that we work on and guarantee 100% owner supervision at every worksite.


Tree Climbing, Rope Access and Rigging

We use state-of-the-art rigging systems to carefully secure high-risk sections of your tree and gently lower them to the ground.

Overberg Arborists ensure every tree that we care for is carefully and safely dismembered and removed.

NOTE: This is a long and tedious, but very necessary process (We call this “Tree Surgery.”). 


This service includes:

**Quotes are formulated according to Tree Risk Factor**

  • Tree topping

  • Pruning

  • High-risk tree removals ( ie. heavy branches over roofs, fences, power and telephone lines, gardens etc.)


CHipping Services

Overberg Arborists offers an optional wood chipping service as an addition to the tree work.

Our optimal branch size for chipping biomass is 0-80mm in diameter. The TomCat chipper is operated by our experienced and efficient operators.

 Woodchips make for excellent ground cover to help reduce water usage and evaporation in your garden beds, it also adds to the organic fraction of your soil and it also makes for asthetic pathways to spruce up your garden.


We set the South African industry standard for tree safety

Our arborists and ground team are fully kitted with ALL necessary climbing- and chainsaw-safe PPE. Only our highly experienced arborists are allowed to operate chainsaws.


We are specialists in the latest climbing, felling, and rigging techniques and utilise the safest gear to carry them out. 


Overberg Arborists tree service is fully insured with Outsurance. We have the proper protocols in place to handle any emergency efficiently and effectively. 

Our trained first responder is always on-site to take necessary control of most physical injuries.


Safety is of utmost importance to us as tree felling and arboriculture is one of the most dangerous jobs in the world.

Our Story

The concept of Overberg Arborists started over 4 years ago when a massive need for quality tree care services was recognized here in the Overberg District.


As we all know, fully matured trees such as Eucalyptus and Pine, commonly found here in the Western Cape as invasive species, can reach immense heights and overall size. The coordination effort that goes into safely maintaining or falling such a tree is definitely no small feat!

Overberg Arborists is the combined result of years of in the field experience as well as a keenly developed passion for ethical and sustainable tree care. Our results speak for themselves.


 This is where we stand out from the crowd, we ensure that our clients are fully informed about the dangers involved in every removal and we never take on work that is beyond our capabilities as that would not be true to the Overberg Arborist work ethic.

Tree Specialists that make a difference

Overberg Arborists is working towards the sustainable and biodiverse future of our planet.


We stand strongly against the deforestation of indigenous and ancient trees. In order to reforest areas with indigenous trees, we often have to clear alien trees.


You'll notice, alien trees are our most common patients.  


If precautions aren't taken, large, very old trees can break, rot and become a danger to the surrounding humans, wildlife, infrastructure, and natural environment.

Professional tree care specialists, arborists, carry out strategic operations to either remove the dangerous section of the tree or to remove the tree entirely.


We ensure that all parts of the tree are utilised and respected. 


We keep our footprint small and make a conscious effort to avoid any damage to the environment and eco-habitats surrounding the trees we are working on.
