Tree pruning is important to maintaining the health and structure of your trees as they grow, they may become under stress due to containing excess foliage or accumulated deadwood. There are many reasons why you may need to prune your trees, your tree branches may be interfering with service wires, rubbing on the guttering or roof of your house, or they may be interfering with walkways, driveways or clotheslines. Some examples of our tree pruning services include deadwooding, crown lifting, formative pruning, reduction pruning, selective pruning, crown thinning, and remedial pruning. All our tree pruning services are performed by our qualified arborist and comply with Australian Standards AS4373.
Deadwood in a tree is not only unsightly, dead branches may threaten the health of your trees and can be hazardous. Dead branches can snap off causing injury or property damage, especially during storms and winds. Our high climbing arborist can safely remove dead branches which may also assist in preventing the spread of decay.
Crown lifting is the removal of the lower branches of a tree. Crown lifting may be required when you have access issues or require clearance.
Formative pruning refers to the pruning of young trees to assist with crown form and shape development. This type of pruning may reduce developmental structural weakness by removing crossed branches, branches with bark inclusions, or removing first order lateral branches. Removing first order lateral branches may be performed to extend the trunk or guide the structural branch to develop the crown form or shape.
Reduction pruning is the removal of specific branches to reduce the crown height, weight or spread. This type of pruning may be used to reduce stress on individual branches throughout the tree, or to allow light to enter the tree and surrounding environment.
Selective pruning is the removal of specific branches. This type of pruning may be required if you have tree branches obstructing walkways, driveways, clotheslines, service wires or the roof and guttering around your home.
Crown thinning is the removal of selected branches throughout the crown of a tree. This type of pruning allows an even structure throughout the crown without modifying the size of a tree. Crown thinning may be required to allow light through the tree, reduce wind resistance or to reduce weight.
Remedial pruning is the repair pruning of a damaged tree or previously poorly pruned works. This type of pruning may be required for tree species that are prone to branch or trunk failure which may have been caused by wind or trees that have developed too many branches within the crown.
