Every so often TreeZone is asked to do some work which is slightly out of the ordinary. Whilst we specialise in the removal of trees in technical situations, it is not often that many of them are half way down a cliff.
Following one of Auckland’s many wet storms a tree that had been up on the top of the bank had been hammered by the storm and started to slip down the cliff. In this situation TreeZone was able to advise the client that the tree could be saved, allowing the roots to continue to stabilise the bank. Luckily TreeZone had the skills and capabilities to abseil down to the tree and take off the weight of many of the branches, leaving the tree secure and tidy. It was a tricky but interesting day for the team and a magic view!
