How To Identify If Tree Removal Is Required

Tania from A1 Sure Services - Auckland Tree Removal & Tree Care Specialist

Tree trimming, tree removal, tree cutting, grinding and removal of tree stumps and garden care can be dangerous work. Before undertaking any work yourself we urge you to get the advice of a tree care specialist. At A1 Sure services we can offer high-quality tree services North Shore / Auckland wide and can give expert advice on the best course of action for your trees.

If you have decided to do some work on your trees and garden, be sure to keep your health and safety as your number one priority. If you are unsure about something or not confident in your ability to complete a certain task, then don’t do it. Contact a professional arborist and get their advice.

Here are a few safety tips for tree care and garden work:

1. Wear protective clothing/gear - Depending on the work you’re doing you may need all or some of the following: Helmet/Hard Hat, Safety Goggles, Work Gloves, Slip-resistant Work Boots, Thick Pants. It is vital you protect yourself from any potential hazards such as falling branches, wood dust/chips, slippery environments, sharp tools/machinery.

2. Be aware of your surroundings - Make sure you have a good lay of the area you will be working with. If you’re going to be digging into the ground, find out where utility pipes/cables lie and avoid causing major damage/disruptions. If you will be getting high up on a ladder or other piece of machinery, be aware of low hanging branches and power lines.

3. Minimize hazards - Before undertaking any work be sure to clear the area of any potential hazards. Loose branches, tools, toys, sports equipment can all be tripping hazards and, when you’re operating power tools or holding sharp objects, can cause serious injury. Also, make sure any children or animals are kept indoors and out of the way.

4. Power Tools - Take the utmost care when working with power tools, they are not toys! Before using them make sure you inspect for any damage to the tools that could potentially become hazards. Wear the correct protective gear when operating power tools. Use an outdoor extension lead if required and always be aware of where your cable is to avoid cutting through it.

Most importantly, never operate a power tool unless you are confident in your ability to use it. Read the manual, watch tutorial videos on youtube, ask someone experienced for advice, just make sure you know what you are doing before pressing that ‘ON’ button.

Poll: Are you confident Auckland's light rail project will go ahead?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Auckland mayor Phil Goff says an announcement could be made soon on Auckland's light rail.

The $6 billion project to revive a tram network in Auckland was one of Labour's initial election promises in 2017.

After Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's big victory on October 17, the light rail system connecting the airport to Auckland's central city may finally get off the ground.

But Transport Minister Phil Twyford alluded key decisions are still to be made.

Twyford said in June the governing parties could not agree on a preferred proposal and the future of the project would be decided by the new Government following the election.

Kayaker plucked from Manukau Harbour

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Art has imitated life for Counties Manukau police.

Police Eagle helicopter crew were talking on camera about water safety when they were called to a real rescue on the Manukau Harbour.

The officers were starring in a video about dangers at sea ahead of Labour Weekend.

It took them a moment to realise the call about a kayaker in trouble was real- rather than a stitch up.

They stopped filming and rushed to the harbour after the alarm was raised about 3.20 pm on October 20.

Helicopter crew soon spotted the kayaker, who was plucked to safety by the Coastguard.

The kayaker was reported to be safe and well.
