Tree Lopping & Pruning

Tree Lopping & Pruning for Brisbane Properties

Tree Lopping & Pruning

Keeping your trees healthy and looking fantastic sometimes means branches or the crown of the tree need to be pruned.

If your tree is correctly pruned by qualified Arborists to Australian standards, it remains healthy and sound. If it is hacked at by unskilled tree loppers, it is likely to weaken the tree and increase the likelihood of it falling during a storm or high winds.

Not only will your tree be healthier if worked on by an Arborist, but it will also look better. After all, everyone can all spot the difference between a haircut done by a toddler with a pair of scissors and a professional hairdresser.

Aussie Tree Solutions deliver a safe, affordable tree pruning and maintenance service by qualified Arborists for Brisbane properties.

Our decades of proven expertise mean you can trust us to maintain or enhance the look of your trees while preserving their structural integrity. We specialise in tight, confined space tree pruning.

Our Brisbane Tree Pruning Services

No matter the size, location or type of tree or palm, we offer a range of tree pruning and maintenance options.

Crown Reduction – Crown reduction reduces the height or width of a tree and is often made to trees encroaching on power lines. Your tree retains a good shape and remains healthy and sound. A tree doesn’t need to be hacked at or lopped to be reduced!

Crown Clearing – If you need deadwood removed from your canopy or the removal of diseased or poorly attached branches, then we recommend crown clearing.

Thinning – Sometimes you need to let more sunshine and air into your tree canopy. By carefully selecting the branches to be pruned, we can open up your tree, while still retaining the tree’s natural shape.
Raising or Canopy Lifting – If your tree has lower branches that are encroaching on people or cars, we can remove lower hanging branches to create more space.

Directional Pruning – Trees can be trained to grow in certain ways through careful directional pruning. This allows branches to be pruned to grow away from homes, power lines and neighbour’s properties.

Cutting to the Fenceline – If your tree overhangs your property line, your neighbours can require it to be pruned back. Rather than hack or lop at it which could permanently damage the tree, through directional pruning and selective thinning or reduction, we can reduce regrowth and maintain shape while reducing the overhang problem.

A Word About Tree Lopping

Tree lopping was the old-school way of reducing the height of a tree: When in doubt, just cut off the top or unwanted bits with a chainsaw. The problem is that studies have found that lopping your tree increases the number of problems with your tree.

Lopped trees are more likely to have weakly attached branches and are more likely to topple over in a storm or wind. This is particularly true of Poinciana and Fig Trees where epicormic branch growth after tree lopping can exceed 30cm in diameter and are prone to dropping and failing.

Trees that are lopped are also more likely to get pests and disease, further increasing the risk of failing.

If you have a tree that you are worried about falling on your house, tree lopping will create more danger rather than reduce it.

We don’t lop trees. We use more advanced techniques that are proven to deliver the result you want while keeping the structural integrity of the tree and reducing the danger.

The thing to remember is that having an Arborist prune your tree often costs the same or cheaper than having your trees lopped by a backyard operator. So not only do you get a better and safer result for your tree, you get a better result for your budget.

Our Tree Pruning Process

Effective tree pruning takes time as it takes longer to prune correctly than simply cut a tree down.

Our Arborists work with the tree to explore the direction of growth, nodes and joins and to carefully check the tree for any tree pests or tree diseases. We check for poor limb unions and cracks, as well as any other tree safety concerns.

Our expert Arborists will talk you through their findings, and help you with tangible advice and clear strategies to maintain the health of your trees.

All our pruning is done to Australian Standards, which means the tree retains its health and vitality.

We believe in safety above all else, which is why our safety and planning processes for every job are rigorous and thorough.

Our clean-up after tree pruning is second to none. We ensure that your property is left clean and tidy after every job.
