Pruning done properly

There are various reasons a tree may need to be pruned or trimmed. It may be for weight reduction, pruning for views, pruning for solar panels and extra light, pruning of hazardous limbs or perhaps just for aesthetics to name a few.

Whatever the reason, it is often unknown that there are particular ways trees & branches should be pruned for the benefit of the tree. If branches are simply lopped off this can encourage epicormic growth or stress growth which is weakly attached and will generally lead to increased maintenance and failure. We have and will prune rosebushes with secateurs to limbs 100 foot up a tree the size of power poles. We have and will also use handsaws and secateurs on large trees if a delicate touch is required or there are specific needs for that tree.

Pruning /trimming also involves shrubs and hedges. We have trimmed hedges from 2 meters long to hedges 200 meters long. Again we have the equipment required to prune and shape any hedge to the customer’s desire.

All of our pruning is to Australian Standards (AS 4373 Pruning of Amenity Trees 2007). This not only ensures the tree can recover and heal over the areas pruned but is also much nicer in appearance. All of our staff from groundsman to climbers are trained and certified in pruning to Australian Standards. This is also reiterated by our team attending training days which can cover basic pruning techniques through to advanced pruning techniques.

There is often specific information which may apply to specific tree species which is important to know. This information can be from independent research through to government research (DPI, ASIO). Keeping up to date with this information gives us an edge and a keen interest for our staff. Feel free to ask our staff any questions you may have on tree pruning /trimming.

Here’s what our happy customers had to say about our services:

Always on time! A very well organised company that consistently provides great service

Peter, Morgan Building Services

Thanks for both your prompt response for the quote and the swift resolution of the job. Definite thumbs up and compliments to your work force – they are professional and excellent at what they do. I would give Treesafe Australia a score of 11 out of ten, since ten is inadequate.

Rhonda Covey

We have been very happy with their knowledge in relation to the safe and effective removal of trees, especially those trees that have posed a safety risk to our rental properties and tenants. Their professionalism and prompt communication has made the whole process a breeze

Doug Waterman, KBR Property Sales and Management

The team from Treesafe did a great job considering we had nearly 200mm of rain a few days before. We no longer have large branches and sticks falling in the yard and on our house. We also feel that our kids are much safer to play outside as well. Thank you.

Kerry Baker

Thank you and your team for the professional and efficient way you carried out the tree removal at MacKillop Village in Nambour. Expressions of praise came from all quarters and we are so grateful.
