Flax Removal

Flax Removal

Although beautiful, New Zealand flax can quickly become out of control. Removing flax bushes can be difficult and expensive if you don’t know what you’re doing.

Tree King has developed a very effective method of pulling flax bushes out in large clumps using a special attachment on our Vermeer 725tx mini skid steer.  This machine will fit through a gap of 1100mm and has the power to clear large areas of flax extremely efficiently. 

Because the plants are being teared out of the ground rather than dug out the amount of dirt that comes with them is limited. This minimises disposal and transport costs and eliminates the need to bring in replacement topsoil.  This is by far the quickest, tidiest and most cost effective method of large scale flax bush removal.

We clear large areas with literally hundreds of flax and also apply this method to Toi Toi bushes, Tecoma hedging and banana palms.

“…. I can not speak highly enough of the professionalism and efficiency of the crew. The tree work was not straight forward, however it was clear from the outset that the crew had taken the time to think through the logistics and details of the job…..”
