Palm & Tree Pruning
Pruning involves selective cutting back of the canopy of the tree or palm, and usually requires equipment to assist with gaining access to branches, fronds or fruit at quite a height.
Qualified arborists should be engaged for trees and palms which cannot be pruned from ground level, as this is dangerous work. Not only is it dangerous, experience is required to recognise unhealthy growth patterns, where the trunk is in danger of splitting, and identifying disease and infestations. Being able to recognise the warning signs and hazards of tree development, and guide the growth to ensure a healthy well balanced tree are specialised skills we, as experienced arborists, provide.
Brisbane Tree Removal professionals are skilled at climbing and using equipment from heights. We have all the safety gear and mechanical devices necessary to ensure any pruning from high up is undertaken in a way which protects the arborists at work and all things below. All pruning work is carried out by qualified arborists and complies with Australian Standard AS 4373-2007.
Palm Pruning is recommended on a regular basis to remove heavy dead (and often precariously hanging) fronds, and large clusters of fruit which if left to fall, make an awful mess and have a pungent odour. A nicely pruned palm is an attractive palm. Brisbane Tree Removal have at their disposal all the equipment necessary to attend to your palm needs, and skilled professionals to do the job safely, efficiently and effectively.
Pruning of trees may be required for a variety of reasons – clearance for power lines, removal of dangerous deadwood, disinfection, canopy reduction and selective pruning for practical reasons, which includes reducing the height of the tree or lifting the crown by clearing lower branches. Trees should be pruned in a way which leaves them balanced, aesthetically pleasing and in good health. Our experienced arborists will discuss options and offer advice regarding your pruning needs, taking into careful consideration your Local Council’s Tree Preservation Order.
