Overberg Arborists was started by Shelby Pietersen, André Pietersen and Kyle Joubert in 2020.
The team uses the latest rigging equipment tailored to their profession. This highly specialised and professional service focuses on tree removal, where safety is the primary selling point. Affectionately referred to as "hippies," they are passionate about trees and will only remove one when necessary. Their rigorous approach involves correct rigging techniques to prevent accidents. For example, when cutting the top of a tree, they securely lower it using expert rigging gear, ropes, and pulleys.
The team at Overberg Arborists loves trees and is passionate about their work. Extensively trained in the latest climbing technology, they ensure the utmost safety and precision in their tree care services.
