Services We Offer

Tree Removal


Complex Locations

No tree too tricky. We have a wealth of experience and knowledge when it comes to tree removal done correctly and safely. No job is too small either.

When it comes to removing big trees in tight areas we can definitely help. Where machinery access is limited we would use modern rigging and lowering techniques to sectionally dismantle trees with little impact to the surrounding areas. We also have plenty of experience working with cranes, HIABs and helicopters.

We can also structure the job however you like. If you want to keep the mulch or the wood we can leave it all on site for you. We can even dice up the firewood for you.

Trust us to handle your tree removal needs with professionalism and care.

Tree pruning and sawing


Any Shape or Size

Trees often require pruning to help maintain them away from buildings and other structures. They can also start to impede views as the trees grow larger.

Our team of Arborists can either climb the tree or we can bring a lift to access the tree externally. There are many ways to achieve the results you are after, our job is to find the best solution for you.

We can thin the canopy to allow more light penetration and open views, remove the deadwood from the canopy mitigating branch failure, height/canopy reductions to bring the size of a tree down, crown lift to remove the lower branches from a tree to increase the trees ground clearance.

Should the tree overhang something valuable we can lower branches down with ropes and pulleys to mitigate any property damage.

For a more in-depth description please see below.

  • Crown lifting

Lower branches are removed to gain more ground clearance.

  • Deadwooding

Dead branches are removed from the canopy removing the in-tree hazard and helping the tree heal faster.

  • Canopy Thinning

Selected branches are removed throughout the canopy to allow better light penetration and improve views. Generally, we work to a total percentage up to 30%, any more than this can be detrimental to the tree.

  • Canopy Reduction

This is where the overall size of the tree is bought down. We do this whilst maintaining the shape of the tree and all cuts are completed correctly. THIS IS NOT TOPPING.

  • Tree topping

Topping is a poor style of height reduction where large stumps are left in the canopy leaving the tree looking unsightly and potentially causing more of an issue in the future. The tree produces fast growing epicormic shoots from the stumps which ruins the shape of the tree and causes weak branch structures in the future.

Grinding a fallen tree stump in Auckland


Expert Servicing Auckland Wide

Stump grinding is a way of disposing of the remaining stump and root ball below ground level once the tree has been removed.

We have two grinders in our fleet. Our smaller unit is a handheld (chainsaw mounted) grinder that is perfect for those hard to get areas such as retaining walls or close to dwellings.

Our larger unit is a tracked 55hp unit operated by remote control. This weapon will tackle almost any sized stump.

Stumps are normally ground 200-300mm below ground level. Grindings are normally left on site over the existing stump in a tidy pile. We can quote to include extras such as removing the grindings, topsoiling, reseeding and grinding lateral/buttress roots.

Trust us for expert stump removal solutions tailored to your needs.

Tree Removal


Hazard Minisation Tree Maintenance

Tree bracing is a good way to retain a tree, as opposed to removing it. If a hazardous limb has been identified, we can brace the tree so that in the event of a failure the bracing will hold the limb in place. Tree propping is more used for wide spreading trees with low structural branches that need a hand – we place an upright pole on the underside so the limb doesn’t stress too much thus lessening the chance of failure.

Ensure the structural integrity of your trees with Hardfell Ltd’s expert tree bracing and propping services. Our skilled arborists use advanced techniques and materials to support weakened or damaged trees, preventing further damage and promoting their longevity. Trust us to stabilize your trees safely and effectively.
