Tree work Auckland companies now use improved technology to allow their Arborists to perform work with greater ease. We’ve moved from petrol driven resources to electric tools. Read our blog regarding how these changes have impacted how our Arborists work.
New technology has impacted the Tree work Auckland methods
Let face it, tree work is a noisy, messy, business. Two of the most fundamental tools, chainsaws and chippers, are pretty anti-social when it comes to the urban environment. Two-stroke and diesel engines are not exactly the most pleasant things to listen to. They both also release their fair share of dust and fumes which you want to avoid.
However, new technology has developed which is making petrol driven chainsaws a thing of the past. Combine this with alternative methods of processing the waste from tree work and all of a sudden Arborists are becoming more like Ninja’s, carrying out the work with minimal disturbance.
Tree work Auckland services are moving away from petrol tools
Electric powered chainsaws have been on the market for quite some time. In the last couple of years developments in battery powered saws has improved greatly making them viable for commercial use. The main advantage of these saws are they are a lot quieter than their petrol driven counterparts. Our Arborists have noticed the significant reduction in the noise generated when working on trees. This helps to mitigate against what is becoming an ever increasing problem for our jobs. When we carry out tree work in the urban environment with large amounts of people living in close proximity to each other, noise is a big issue.
We have been using a battery powered saw for our pruning work at Tree Care Auckland for the last year. The saw has really impressed both our Arborists and our customers! Customers love the minimal disturbance (as do their pets) and it is much more user friendly for the team with no petrol fumes for them to breath in, and less vibration and noise. As the range of battery powered equipment continues to grow we will continue adopt it to replace our petrol powered tools.
Tree Work Arborists perform their work with little disturbance
Traditionally to remove waste from site, chippers are towed to the site, the branches are chipped, and then it is driven away to be tipped. We have been using alternative methods for removal which negates the need for the chipper to be onsite, significantly reducing the noise and mess created from treework.
Where possible, our Arborists load the waste unprocessed, and carry it to a site where it is then chipped for recycling as mulch. This means the loud, messy work of the chipper can be done away from your property causing minimal impact. For smaller jobs, this is more cost effective and efficient for dealing with waste as you are not paying for a chipper when one is not needed.
Using the battery saw and chipping away from the work site has reduced the impact on the local environment. It is now possible to have your trees pruned without you, your pets, or your neighbours even hearing it happen.
