→ Tree Stump Grinding
Tree stumps are often a nuisance for most homeowners and garden managers. Not only are they unsightly fixtures in any garden or yard, but they also pose hazards that could bring you more trouble if you don’t have it removed soon. These hazards include having continuing unstable growth out of the stump, rotting and decay, the growth of fungus, and the attraction of termites and other pests. Unfortunately for most homeowners, tree stumps are also notoriously difficult to remove.
River City Trees, however, has the expertise and equipment to safely and effectively do this for you. We have heavy-duty stump grinding machines, for example, that allow us to easily remove tree stumps of all shapes and sizes. Our industry experience will also guide us in the best methods to get your tree stump out in the most efficient way possible.
→ Remedial Pruning
Remedial pruning is one of the most common arboricultural activities that homes and gardens require. This is done not just to keep trees looking beautiful and attractive, but also for their health and the safety of those around them. As easy as it looks, however, remedial pruning requires specialised skill and expertise to do properly. It takes a qualified professional to know where to prune, how much to prune, and how often to do it. If your trees are pruned by inexperienced and unqualified personnel, then it may end up harming your tree and affecting its long-term health.
As we like to say at River City Trees, there are only two ways to perform remedial pruning: the right way or the wrong way. We make it a point to always prune your tree in the right and most effective way. We don’t take shortcuts, and we won’t haphazardly prune your tree just for the sake of doing it quickly and cheaply.
When we prune your tree, rest assured that we’ll always do it the right way. In fact, we perform tree pruning to Australian Standards AS4373-2009, ensuring that your trees are pruned in the accepted national standards.
Aside from this, River City Trees also provides a variety of soft landscaping Brisbane and Sunshine Coast services to make your yard or garden even more attractive.
→ Root Barrier
One of the most important points to consider when growing trees in gardens and outside homes is the resulting growth of its roots underneath. In some cases, your trees’ root systems may grow towards the driveway, surrounding pathways, or even your house. When this happens, then it needs to be addressed properly to prevent damage on your home’s infrastructure and foundation.
A root barrier is one of the most effective ways to address this issue. It’s a preventive measure that allows your trees’ roots to grow in the direction that you’d like, instead of encroaching certain areas in your property. If done correctly, then a root barrier would not only fix this issue, but it may even improve your tree’s health.
Know that our team has the experience and expertise to install effective and non-harmful root barriers for your home or garden. We specialise in applying techniques that allow your trees’ roots to develop downward while retaining natural moisture levels underneath. A win-win for your tree and your property.

→ Forest Mulch Supply
Mulching is a form of tree maintenance that involves adding mulch (materials that improve soil moisture and health) to the top soil surface of trees and plants. This improves the tree’s health by retaining moisture, adding nutrients to the surrounding soil, and preventing the growth of weeds.
Although there are a variety of mulch that you can use for your trees, you’ll often get the best results with those that are organic and filled with essential soil nutrients. River City Trees offers forest mulch that tick all these requirements. This type of mulch is entirely organic, having been properly aged to provide optimum nutrition to your soil and make mulching easier.
We provide this because we believe that it truly makes a difference on the health and growth of your trees. After all, there’s no better supplement for trees and plants than materials that came from nature itself. If it’s good enough for nature, it’s good enough for us.
