What is Tree Pruning?
Tree Pruning is an important tree maintenance service that incorporates many techniques to keep your trees healthy. These techniques, carried out by our team of award winning arborists and tree specialists include:
- Cutting back
- Weight reduction
- Weight distribution
Pruning helps a tree to stay healthy. Dead branches and foliage are stripped away to remove any excess weight. This process clears the way for new growth.
Benefits of Tree Pruning
When a tree is pruned, dead branches and foliage are stripped away to remove any excess weight. This process clears the way for new growth, as pruning helps a tree to stay healthy.
This strategy of evenly distributing the weight throughout the structure of the tree significantly decreases the chances of a branch snapping, or a storm bringing the whole tree down and causing significant damage.

From one of the upper forks of a large Eucalyptus Tree one of our expert climbers assessed the condition of the tree. Although this was a residential tree pruning service, our scope includes commercial and council properties.
Property type: Residential home based in Geelong,
Strategy: Our highly qualified and skilled team considered the environment, type of tree and equipment required when making the pruning assessment for this residential property.
The tools for this task required a climbing and hand saw to remove dead, dying or overweight branches which had the potential to be detrimental to the health of the tree and become a hazard to pedestrians below. Additionally, we didn’t wear climbing spikes for this project as it can cause damage to an otherwise healthy tree.
The importance of safety is imperative for our team, neighbours and your home especially when it comes to large trees. This is why our qualified climbers always wear helmets, use safety ropes and have ground crew supporting them. This also assists with disposing of the waste that is lowered down from taller trees.
The pruning process of a tree of this size can take longer than a removal, as the climber needs to carefully assess which sections to remove without damaging the rest of the tree. Our skilled and knowledgeable local teams understand different trees needs to thrive. After we finished the job, we then collected the remaining green waste and disposed of it according to the Geelong council’s regulations.
How long does pruning take?
Pruning can take anywhere from 15 minutes to a whole day, depending on a range of factors like size, condition and species. A small garden tree may need just a few quick clips to remove any dead sections, while a hedge will require careful precision to ensure the uniformity of the foliage. A large canopy tree can take anywhere from a few hours upwards. For a little more info on how long it takes see our guide.
How much does pruning cost?
The cost of pruning will vary, based on the scale of the job and the type of pruning required. Our specialised team use multiple strategies to tackle a job, with safety our number one priority hazards and the difficulty of the job will factor in to determine the price of pruning.
To explain this a small tree will cost a lot less than a large canopy tree due to the amount of time, people, equipment and safety precautions needed. Pruning a very large mature tree can cost anywhere from $1500 upwards.
Our tree pruning price guide outlines factors that determine estimated costs.
How often should I get my tree pruned?
Tree pruning can alleviate many issues associated with trees, including safety risks, declining health, leaf litter and weight imbalances. If any of these things have become an issue for you or your home, you should consider having your trees pruned. An arborist can provide a health assessment and give you an idea of how often you should be pruning your tree, but ultimately it should be done as much as necessary to keep your tree healthy, safe and looking good.
What is the difference between tree pruning and tree trimming?
Tree pruning is mostly general tree maintenance, including targeted cutting of leaves, brands and excess growth to rejuvenate and reshape your tree. This not only makes your tree look renewed, it helps improve the structural integrity and health of the tree.
Whereas, tree trimming reduces the weight of built-up leaves and sticks to keep a tree balanced and safe. Without removing excess tree foliage it can put unnecessary stress on tree branches and a trunk, as the wind gets captured and causes growth imbalances.
