Upp Mt Gravatt Poinciana Tree Removal
Upper Mount Gravatt in Brisbane Southside is a much appreciated mini business hub comparable to Indooroopilly, Carindale and Chermside.
Westfield Garden City Shopping Centre is a big part of the district’s identity. This was the location for TreeloppingPros Poinciana tree removal.
Most jobs present some significant challenge that brings much satisfaction once overcome. We were presented with three distinct challenges on this particular job.
The much-maligned yellow kerbside line to the narrow street, making parking a logistical brain throb, branches overhanging structures throughout its radius and a rabbit warren of cars and machinery to navigate under its canopy.
Not the sort of job you rub your clasped hands, bursting with happy anticipation on arrival. The removal was formidable, but putting our best foot forward we mounted the challenge just like every other problematic job, one step at a time.
The size of this particular Poinciana was intimidating, to say the least. Each of its 7 trunks splayed out approximately 12m with remarkable symmetry, giving this Poinciana’s canopy a massive 24m diameter, much greater than its height of 16m.
The most lateral branches that formed an umbrella-like canopy of feathery leaves was striking, to say the least. This Grand Daddy, well into its twilight years although just 45 years old was still producing a splendid robust show of flowers.
Its impressive bloom of multihued red claw shaped flowers that adorned its canopy had roused excitement for many passers-by for decades. As superlative examples of decorative trees go, this would have to be right up there with the best of them.
As you may appreciate by the tone of this right-up we really love our trees, but of course, we had arrived to remove this one.
