5 ways an arborist uses an excavator


At Treecorp Solutions, we are proud to lead one of the most cutting-edge and efficient arborist teams on the Central Coast of Australia. Our team values safety and teamwork above all else, and we are constantly striving to find new ways to improve our operations.

One of the essential tools that we use on a daily basis is our excavator. With its rotating grapple attachment, it has proven to be an invaluable asset in our line of work. It allows us to tackle even the toughest tree removal jobs on the Central Coast with ease and safety, while also increasing our efficiency and versatility on the job site.

At Treecorp Solutions, safety is always our top priority. We know that accidents can happen, but we do everything in our power to prevent them from occurring. We understand that safety is not just about following rules and wearing safety gear, but it’s also about working together effectively to avoid accidents and make the most out of our equipment.

In this blog, we share with you six ways that we utilise our excavator to work safely and efficiently. From removing trees to transporting logs and cleaning up debris, this powerful piece of machinery has become an essential part of our daily operations.

So, whether you’re a fellow arborist or simply curious about how we operate, join us on this journey through the day-to-day operations of Treecorp Solutions and how our excavator plays a crucial role in ensuring safety and effective work conditions.

Tree Removal

When it comes to tree removal, an excavator with a rotating grapple attachment is a valuable piece of equipment. The rotating grapple attachment is essentially a large claw that can grab and manipulate objects from any angle. This feature is especially useful when dealing with large trees or branches that need to be removed. The excavator’s grapple attachment allows our team to work from a safe distance, reducing the risk of injury. Additionally, it provides a precise control mechanism that allows our team to remove trees and branches with minimal impact on the surrounding area. With the excavator’s powerful grapple attachment, our team can quickly and easily grab and remove even the largest pieces of debris, making it a faster and more efficient method than manual removal.

Stump Removal

When it comes to stump removal, an excavator’s hydraulic arm is incredibly useful. The hydraulic arm can easily dig around and uproot the stump, making it easier to remove and dispose of. Compared to manual stump removal, this method is faster and more efficient, leaving minimal impact on the surrounding landscape. Additionally, the excavator’s hydraulic arm can be used to remove roots and other debris surrounding the stump, making the area ready for future landscaping.

Transporting Trees

When it’s necessary to relocate a large tree or branch, an excavator can come in handy. With its powerful hydraulic arm, we can lift and transport trees to their new location, minimising damage to the tree and surrounding landscape. This method is faster and more efficient than manual relocation and allows us to safely move trees that might otherwise be too heavy or cumbersome to move.

Cleaning Up Debris

After a tree removal or pruning job, there can be a significant amount of debris left behind. An excavator with a bucket attachment can be used to quickly and efficiently gather and remove debris, leaving the site clean and tidy. This method is faster and more efficient than manual cleanup and reduces the risk of injury to our team members. Additionally, the excavator’s precise control mechanism allows us to minimise damage to the surrounding area and other plants.

Feeding a Woodchipper

When it’s time to chip branches or debris, an excavator can be used to feed the woodchipper. This method is faster and more efficient than manual feeding and reduces the risk of injury to our team members. The excavator’s hydraulic arm can grab and manipulate branches, feeding them into the woodchipper with precision and accuracy. Additionally, this method allows us to chip larger branches that might be too heavy for manual feeding.

Anchor Point

Sometimes when removing a tree, it’s necessary to have an anchor point to safely lower branches or sections of the tree. An excavator can provide a secure anchor point that allows us to control the tree’s descent and minimize the risk of injury or property damage. The excavator’s hydraulic arm can be used to hold the tree in place while our team works to remove branches or sections. This method is safer and more efficient than manual anchoring and allows us to safely remove trees that might otherwise be too difficult or dangerous to remove.

In conclusion, the excavator with its rotating grapple attachment has become an indispensable tool for us at Treecorp Solutions. Its versatility, efficiency, and safety features make it an essential part of our daily operations. We are proud to have a team that prioritizes safety and works together effectively to maximize the potential of this powerful machinery.
