Aussie Tree Solutions are here to help you care for and maintain your trees. We provide quality tree pruning services & expert advice.
We love healthy trees and we want to support them in sustaining a long life.
Therefore we have listed the advantages of pruning your trees:
- Pruning allows more light in and can open up a view
- It minimises overhanging branches from touching powerlines
- It helps to prepare for storm season by removing deadwood and weak unions
- You can reduce dead leaves and branches falling into gutters
- Finally, it can allow more light onto solar panels
All tree pruning will be performed by a qualified arborist (AQF level 3) in compliance with Australian Standard 4373-2007 ‘Pruning of amenity trees‘.
Please see the following methods for tree pruning:
Inspecting for safety
Our Arborist can assess the tree for poor limb unions, cracks, decay, pest infestation and any other health tree concerns. Any major tree safety concerns will be conveyed to the client along with rectification options.
This is the removal of all accessible deadwoods throughout the canopy (30mm and greater in diameter unless otherwise stated).
General prune of canopy
Pruning of the canopy includes dead wooding, removal of damaged/diseased limbs & crossing branches. This helps reduce weight loads on limbs and clears branches free of obstructions. In addition, pruning will result in the tree having good form and shape.
It also reduces future pruning requirements by anticipating future growth. Furthermore, no more than 25% of the tree’s original canopy will be removed.
Cut to Fence line
Furthermore, we can prune trees back to the property boundary line. We make every effort to obtain permission if we need to enter the neighbouring properties. The reason for this is to help us prune correctly to meet the Australian Standards (so that no “lopping” occurs). If access to the neighbouring property is not available, pruning will be restricted to what is accessible from within the client’s property.
This is where the tree is pruned away from houses, service wires and property lines. In most cases a minimum clearance requirement will be stated. Once again, the tress will be pruned to the Australian Standards with the aim of reducing future regrowth.
Trees to have canopy reduced in size (height and width) normally by a specified distance or percentage. All cuts to be made to Australian Standards with resulting tree to have good shape and form.
Our Arborist will remove all the lower branches of the tree to lift the height of the canopy. This is especially relevant if the lower branches are causing obstructions.
Finally, we also can clean your Palm trees which can be quite difficult to do. Therefore we can do this for you. We remove all spadix (seed pods), guard shells and dead fronds as closely and as neatly to the trunk as possible.
