Tree Care are currently contracted to Leighton Opus Team for the current Integrated Service Arrangement for Main Roads WA in the Wheatbelt.

In the years of undertaking works in the Wheatbelt, several emergency situations have resented themselves to us, one example would be whilst the crew were mobilising back to their accommodation, a fallen tree was noticed on a main arterial road. Despite the time of day and weather conditions, the crew immediately re-set u the equipment including traffic signage to warn other road users, contacted Main Roads to advise of the situation and proceeded to make the area safe by removing the fallen tree.
This has been a highly successful contract to date with all targets having been achieved on me and to budget.

Example – Emergency Tree Removal
As an example and for the puroses of demonstrating our understanding, a detailed description of an emergency tree removal located in a sensitive gravestone area of Fremantle Cemetery is outlined below, along with photographs of the tree in question.
Description of works – Storm damage had caused a very large Pine Tree to fall onto headstones.
Our approach – Following a detailed and lengthy inspection of this tree it was determined that the tree required very careful “dismantling” via chainsaw and rigging techniques” This was undertaken by our most experienced arborists and ground personnel over a period of several days” Continued periodic inspections were undertaken following the removal of each section of tree to ensure there would be no unexpected movement of the tree and to ensure the integrity of the graves both under the tree and in the immediate vicinity would not be compromised further as a result of our work.
Outcome – We are pleased to advise that the tree in question was removed successfully and efficiently with no further damage to the graves and surrounding environment or harm to personnel on site.

Example of Project:
We recently successfully completed a large tree removal programme for the City of Gosnells on Wilfred Road. Upon undertaking our usual Dial Before you Dig enquiries, it was bought to our attention that there was a High Pressure Gas Mainline located in the vicinity of the trees requiring removal. As a result of this, we had to engage Abaxa to locate the services via potholing. An Alinta Gas Inspector was required to be in attendance at all times during the Tree Removal and Stump Grinding processes. Due to the proximity of the trees to the Gas Mains, and in Strict adherence with Alinta Gas policies, all trees had to be dismantled and carefully lowered to the ground using correct rigging technique. All large logs had to be craned rather than felled” Traffic Management was required in accordance with Main Roads guidelines. In total, 26 Very Large (in excess of 25 metres) Yellow Box Trees were removed over a period of 10 days and without incident. During the course of the works, several residents voiced some concerns over the trees being removed, as is our company policy, all residents were directed to the City of Gosnells.
Tree Care were contracted to remove and prune all trees along Great Eastern Hwy between Kooyong Road & Tonkin Hwy in Belmont as part of the Great Eastern Highway Major Widening Contract currently underway. Our methodical approach coupled with commitment to the safety of our employees has lead to these extremely complex works being completed on time and to an extremely high standard. Given the proximity of the worksite to large volumes of pedestrians and Vehicles, Tree Care’s ability to undertake the works without incident indicates a high level of awareness to the environment around our worksites and our exceptional attention to detail ensuring the safety of the public is evident.
