Tree Pruning

Tree pruning in Melbourne, whether in suburban, commercial, or semi-rural areas, requires the skills and specialised equipment that only a qualified arborist can provide. Kingfisher Tree services have both, and we undertake our tree shaping and pruning with the health and safety of the tree and the people who share their space in mind.

Why Prune a Tree?

 
In the two decades that we have been providing a range of tree services to the people of Melbourne, it has become clear that the main reason trees need to be pruned includes:
 
• To give trees the best possible shape, appropriate to their species
• To remove low hanging branches that have become dangerous
• Leaves from overhanging branches are filling gutters
• Branches overhanging your house are a pathway for unwelcome possums
• They are getting too close to power-lines or other overhead cables
• They’ve begun to block a beautiful view
• They have been neglected over time and need a little love
• Some branches have died and need to be removed before they fall
• They have begun to encroach onto neighbouring properties
• After storm events, they have sustained damage & need repair

Tree Pruning Vs Tree Lopping

 
It is important here to clarify the difference between tree pruning and tree lopping. Tree lopping is a term that is not used to describe a service provided by a qualified arborist. Anyone off the street can offer to ‘lop’ your trees (often at a very cheap price).
The problem is that the practices of tree loppers can leave your beautiful trees dangerous (new growth from improperly cut branches are weak and may cause damage in strong winds), subject to pest infestation (because of the manner in which branches are haphazardly cut), and unattractive (because the new growth is growing in all the wrong directions).

Our arborists who undertake your tree pruning have recognised qualifications, loads of experience, come highly recommended, and have the right tools and equipment for each job. We want your trees to look the very best they can. We draw upon our knowledge to ensure your trees look the best in your neighborhood. We love those word-of-mouth referrals that are our most frequent source of new business, and we want to add you to them!
