There comes a time when many trees need pruning. Maybe there are damaged
branches that need removing perhaps after being subjected to gale force winds
tree loppers. Trees are not immune to disease and it may be possible to prune out
the affected branches leaving the tree to survive a few more years. The centre of
the tree could have become congested with branches crossing and a bit of
judicious pruning will let air and light in to keep the tree healthy. Or of course it
may have outgrown its allotted space and is crowding out other specimens or
denying light to the understory.
Whatever the reason a little tree surgery may be called for.
For a very large established tree that needs major thinning or lopping it is wise to
call in a professional tree surgeon with the knowledge, experience and safety
equipment. Climbing trees and handling power equipment such as a chain saw is
definitely not recommended for the inexperienced. Smaller trees are a different
prospect. Always read up on the subject before you start pruning a tree. The
classic case is that of pruning an apple tree, get it wrong and you can ruin the look
of your tree or lose much of your potential fruit splinterstreelopping.com.au.
Once you have a good idea of how to prune your tree the next step is to buy the
right tool for the job. For cuts at or below head height it may be possible to use
hand pruners for those young shoots not yet very thick and a pruning saw for
those a bit thicker.
For branches higher off the ground at one time there was only one way to tackle
the job and that was to get out the ladders. No problem if the necessary safety
precautions are observed but it is still not recommended that an enthusiastic a
tree service amateur uses anything other that a hand tool, using a chain saw
when perched precariously ups a tree is definitely not recommended.
A much safer way of cutting off higher branches is to use a pole pruner. You may
find these for sale with alternative titles such as telescopic pole pruner or pole
saw. Whatever name is given to this garden tool there is little doubt that the tree
loppers telescopic facility makes tree lopping and pruning a lot easier and safer.
