How our tree pruning service benefits you
Our tree pruning service is one of the most effective ways of keeping trees in optimum health. Branches, buds and even roots can be pruned back. But it has to be done at the right time of year and in the right way. It should be done by a professional arborist as pruning wounds the tree. If it’s not done correctly those wounds can be an entry point for disease or insects.
4 Reasons Why Trees Must Be Pruned
To improve the health of the tree.
When branches die it’s usually due to a lack of light, disease, pest damage or even root structure damage. If a tree is suffering from some form of disease or malnutrition it’s best to prune the tree back to a healthy state and let it re-grow from there.
For safety reasons.
Improving the safety of trees involves removing dead wood, structurally unsafe branches and improving the structural integrity of the tree by weight reduction pruning. Weight Reduction Pruning: is a preventative measure that reduces the risk of limb failures by way of end weight reduction, particularly on lateral limbs.
To thin out the tree’s canopy.
Thinning out the tree’s canopy lets in more light which in turn benefits the smaller trees and plants below. Thinning also increases air circulation through the canopy and reduces wind resistance or ‘sail weight’ increasing the trees ability to handle strong winds. Thinning must be done selectively to maintain the trees structural integrity and should only be conducted by a minimum AQF Level 3 Arborist.
To improve aesthetics
Shaping a tree by way of formative pruning trains the trees future growth and improves the overall appearance.
Can’t I do the pruning myself?
Pruning is dangerous work and should only be carried out by trained and qualified climbing arborists with an AQF Level 3 qualification. Not only do our staff have the knowledge and skill, but they also have the right equipment. Our initial aerial inspection shows exactly what work is needed to solve the problem and restore the tree to prime structural condition and health. Our obligation-free quote includes clearly marked photographs detailing exactly what and where we’re pruning.
