First Tree Felling “Jan Boom”

Jannie and JP Theron

Based in Garstfontein in Pretoria, Jannie Theron, Owner of First Tree Felling or ‘Jan Boom’ as most people affectionately call him, has more than 20 years of experience in: Landscaping, Pruning, Garden Clean-Ups, Garden Refuse Removal, Tree Chipping and Stump Grinding.

From starting out on his own to a full team of 8 consisting of his son JP ‘Klein Jan’, 2 highly efficient tree fellers and charge hands. To add to his stable and ensure the highest quality work, Jannie purchased a TOMCAT 200AFE, TOMCAT 350SG Stump Grinder and TOMCAT 450HV Log Splitter.

Boasting a fleet of three fully equipped vehicles and a 3 Ton tipper trailer for ease of clearing any site of any size.

By incorporating the TOMCAT fleet into his business, he has improved his efficiency on site which eliminates numerous trips to dump sites and now utilizes the chipped mulch from the TOMCAT 200AFE for either his current customers or new customers who are in search of mulch.

Owner supervised on every site to ensure quality is paramount for Jannie

The advantage of having a TOMCAT 450HV Log Splitter has also allowed him to offer an additional service for firewood to his customers. To top it all off the TOMCAT 350SG Stump Grinder allows Jannie to offer a complete solution to his customers.
