Pruning & Shaping
Tree pruning and tree trimming is an important part of tree maintenance and tree ownership. Properly trimmed trees contribute to and often enhance quality of life, while adding value to property. Improperly pruned trees are a liability. We specialize in pruning trees that require a 'professional touch' and we have a deep understanding of how different trees require different types and amounts of pruning.
When selecting a company to perform tree maintenance it is critical that they have the tools, knowledge, and expertise to properly prune trees. Any tree pruning work should be done or overseen by a qualified Certified Arborist with years of experience in this type of work.
Tree removal can be a dangerous and often challenging process, even for the most professional Tree Workers. Oahu Tree Works, LLC has extensive experience removing some of the largest and most challenging trees throughout Oahu and the state of Hawai'i. We specialize in trees that are difficult to access with traditional equipment (aerial lifts, cranes etc.) and require extreme precision and control to remove safely.
We pride ourselves on zero impact tree removals, meaning no damage to people and property (including our employees!). We have a proven track record of executing what seems impossible removal operations in a timely and professional manner. We also have invested in quality equipment that allows us to be competitive with our prices by processing material much faster than most other companies. When it is time for your tree to be removed, we are the company to call.
Arborists are involved in all issues related to trees. When the health or stability of a tree is in jeopardy during construction projects, an Arborist can assist in defining appropriate measures to prevent the tree from injury and possible tree removal. When neighbors can't agree on the extent and responsibility of clearance and root conflicts, an Arborist can act as an important mediator in resolving tree disputes.
From simples questions such as "Is my tree safe?" to more complex issues like determining the appraised value of a tree for insurance and/or legal purposes, a Consulting Arborist brings valuable expertise and advice that can save thousands of dollars in uneducated decisions. The following are a list of services that OTP Arborists are qualified to provide: Arborist Reports, Tree Risk Assessments, Disease Diagnosis, Tree Valuations, Resistograph drillings and assessments, Tree Pruning Specifications, and Tree Protection Plans (TPP's).
