As the Inner West Sydney becomes denser with people and infrastructure, many trees are now becoming liabilities or hazards in many residential and commercial areas.
Storm wind and damage
Storms and strong winds endanger people’s lives not just because of the strength of these natural elements. It’s also because of how they make trees and their branches fall off. The hazards get even worse because of unpredictable weather. This means the trees can cause damages, injuries or fatalities no matter what time of day. Diseased and damaged trees present the highest risk. After all, their branches and trunks may break apart anytime soon. Just a single push might be enough to make the tree fall down. This requires urgent attention and action, which is why here at MRTREES, we promptly remove hazardous and dangerous trees from residential, commercial and public areas. We first perform a comprehensive tree assessment to determine the risks. Then, we use our expertise and machinery to safely remove the trees of concern.
High risk areas in the Inner West
It’s especially the case in many Inner West suburbs such as Glebe, Newtown and Annandale wherein the residential density is relatively high. Damaged trees pose a threat to both the surrounding people and properties. Our experienced arborists can accurately assess this kind of threat by paying attention to the following:
- The likelihood of a particular tree (or its branches and other parts) to fail within the foreseeable future
- The likelihood of the target being occupied (e.g. in the event the tree falls, is there potential for injury of the public)
- The magnitude of the potential consequence
- This level of assessment requires expertise because the tree damages might be hidden from view (e.g. rot inside the trunk or decay in the roots). Also, accurate assessment reports and council approvals are often required before finalising to remove a tree.
Inner West tree maintenance
This level of assessment is also important in tree maintenance. After all, the presence of healthy trees in the area provides energy, health and commercial benefits. These are all important in sustaining the development of this metropolitan area. The trees increase property values, decrease energy and health costs and boost business activities. Healthy trees are also good for improving mental wellbeing and encouraging outdoor activity.
Safety and arborist reports
However, these trees should remain safe and healthy throughout the year no matter the season. Trees are now considered as high-value assets in all Inner West suburbs, which is why our arborists perform an extensive assessment of a tree’s health before recommending any action. The arborist’s report is often requested to obtain approval or permission to take relevant actions on a tree.
For more than 30 years, we’ve been doing this kind of assessment to ensure appropriate measures are taken regarding the trees’ health and risk. It might be best to remove the tree. Or, pruning would improve the tree’s safety and possibly stimulate its growth and health.
Our priority here at MRTREES is managing the tree assets (and removing the liabilities if they become one). This way, the entire community will remain safe from falling trees and branches. Also, our tree maintenance work protects the communities’ valuable assets by careful and expert tree pruning.
Environmental land clearing
We’ve also become a part of Inner West’s development and gentrification efforts. Through the years we’ve performed land clearing using the most efficient, responsible and eco-friendly practices. We’ve removed dead trees, shrubs, stumps and vegetation debris to prepare the site for residential, commercial or public purposes.
