Our quality tree care is based on respect for the trees and a continually evolving knowledge base. All work is carried out safely and efficiently.

What do we do?

What do we do?

Krige Tree Service has been delivering quality tree work in Cape Town and the country-side surrounds since 1991. We specialize in care and maintenance of old trees, and our favourite places to work are Kirstenbosch and the Arderne Arboretum in Claremont. We also prune and fell trees in private gardens in and around the city of Cape Town. Felling of big, dangerous trees is our speciality.


Our chippers and crane truck are handy for plot clearing, alien control and big tree felling jobs. Our smaller teams, with pole pruners and hedge trimmers, bakkies and trailers are well-equipped for domestic tree work. Our qualified arborists can assist with disease diagnosis, hazard assessments and consultancies around preservation of trees on constructions sites.
