Trees that aren’t properly pruned can be a major nuisance. If left unpruned, they can:
obstruct driveways and footpaths
fill gutters with leaves and hazardous debris resulting in expensive repairs
stop natural sunlight from coming through your windows
create unwelcome noise
overhang on neighbouring properties,
grow into electrical wires causing fire hazards
loose branches can quickly become missiles in severe storms and heavy winds
There are also many benefits to be gained from Tree Pruning or Trimming, including:
improve the visual appearance of the tree and your garden
prolong the life of the tree
encourage new growth
Different Types of Tree Pruning in VIC
Tree Trimming – Regardless of whether you call it Tree Trimming, Tree Lopping or Tree Pruning, if done incorrectly, it can be extremely detrimental to the health of the tree leading to disease, ongoing health and safety problems and even the death of the tree. It is vital that the correct branches are removed, with the right technique to avoid these problems.
Formative Pruning – Start pruning in the early stages of development. The formative pruning of young trees will help them grow into mature trees with good branch structure and limb formation.
Fruit Tree Pruning – Be rewarded this summer with delicious home-grown produce by spoiling your fruit trees in winter with the care they need to produce a reliable crop of good size fruit. Pruning your fruit trees will also keep them at a manageable size, making it easier to harvest your fruit.
