Below you will find a full description of what our company stands for and also what to expect when working with us.
Owner supervision at every work site
Overberg arborists operate as a partnership between our two arborists @andrepietersen7270 and @kylejoubert, together we have 6+ years of tree felling and sustainable removal experience.
We guarantee that either Andre’ or Kyle will be present at every worksite to ensure the safety of your property and our team.
Climbing, Rope Access and Rigging
Our 2 professional arborists are responsible for climbing. rigging and rope access work to ensure every tree that poses risk to your property is carefully dismembered and removed.
For projects such as tree topping and high-risk removals ( ie. heavy branches over roofs, fences, power and telephone lines, gardens etc.) we will be required to climb up into the tree, relying on our climbing equipment and systems for our safety.
We use state of the art rigging systems to carefully secure high-risk sections of your tree and gently lower them to the ground. NOTE: This is a long and tedious, but very necessary process (We call this “Tree Surgery.”).
Free Quote within 10km of Napier (R8/km outside of that range)
We love our local community and do our best to encourage and promote tree care and arboriculture in the Overberg.
Throughout 2021 we aim to start and grow a program to teach our local youth the life and tree care skills for a more sustainable and poverty-free future.
We also offer a discount to pensioners (if this is you please contact us).
Biomass removal included in your quote (unless otherwise specified)
We also offer yearly memberships for ongoing tree care including but not limited to pruning olive and fruit trees as well as biomass removal.
We do not offer the complete removal of medium to large stumps and root systems, however, we are able to completely remove any stumps that are visible above ground if that is required.
We do offer a chipping service for small branches up to 80mm in diameter as well as any brush that is removed. Woodchips make for excellent ground cover to help reduce water usage as well as pathways to spruce up your garden.
Safety is our highest priority
Our arborists and staff are fully kitted with ALL necessary climbing- and chainsaw-safe PPE . Only our highly experienced arborists are allowed to operate chainsaws as these are very dangerous machines.
We are up to date on the latest climbing, felling, and rigging techniques.
In the event that any damage occurs to property or persons under Overberg Arborist supervision, rest assured that we are fully insured and will have the proper protocol in place to handle the emergency efficiently and effectively.
We also have a trained first responder on-site to take necessary control of most physical injuries that occur on the job. This is of utmost importance to us as this is an occupation that comes with many dangers.
For every removal job we do ,we plant an indigenous tree to help combat climate change and help save our planet
We are passionate about sustainability and the future of our planet. We stand strongly against the deforestation of indigenous and ancient trees.
Unfortunately, sometimes huge and very old trees can break, rot and become a danger to the surrounding humans, wildlife, infrastructure, and natural environment. In many of these cases, experienced arborists would need to come in to assess the situation.
We then 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.
One of the ways that we use the bulk of removed trees is by transporting it to Vadersberg Farm to be debarked, milled into specified sizes, and then cured. You will also have the opportunity to buy back the cured timber at a discounted price.
We also offer to cut firewood stumps from felled alien trees such as Eucalyptus and Blackwattle.
We try to 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.
