One of the best times to remove trees or tree stump removal in Johannesburg is during the dormant season, between late winter and early spring. Dormant trees are leafless and lighter, so it’s much easier for a certified arborist to cut and handle the trunk and branches.
Tree pruning Johannesburg and water wells have something of a fatal attraction. Trees need water to uptake for their survival and water wells are designed to capture and hold water. Even the most strongly constructed well can have problems with obstructing roots. Your well should be inspected, if you believe it has tree roots in it. If the structure is cracked or compromised, you will need to construct a new one. Also check the pump. If the tree roots are obstructing the intake lines you can use a plumbing snake or compressed air to remove them.
Consider it a deeply rooted survival instinct: Tree roots seek water. It’s what they do. So planting water-loving trees close to septic or water lines—including wells—can end up causing grief to the well-meaning homeowner intending only to add shade or otherwise improve the landscape. Avoid planting large shade trees, roots of which often extend as far underground as aboveground vegetation, and trees noted for invasive or aggressive water-seeking roots or you may need palm tree removals Johannesburg.
Tree felling Johannesburg around a swimming pool can really make your pool pop; but plants and trees need to be chosen carefully. Trees with lots of ‘leaf litter’, excessive pollen, berries or budding debris can cause extra work for you and your pool filter.
Trees with extensive root systems can damage pool walls or pool plumbing (see the comments section). And cute little trees that grow into large monsters can block the sun’s warmth, or block the sight and sounds of the pool, which can be unsafe.
Many pool guys will say “the best trees for a pool… are no trees at all”. But that’s not always realistic, or desirable in most cases.
It is a criminal offence to cut down, top, lop, uproot, wilfully damage or wilfully destroy a protected tree species or to cause or permit such actions without the authority’s permission.
