Tree lopping is an essential part of keeping any garden safe, healthy and looking its best. While basic tree maintenance and pruning is well within the ability of most recreational gardeners, some jobs require the know-how and specialist knowledge that only a qualified arborist can provide.
At Tree Surgeons of WA, we have more than 35 years of experience in tree care, from basic branch removal to more complex jobs involving power lines or damaged trees. Whether you want to make your garden beautiful again or you are worried about potential damage from falling trees or branches, we can meet your tree lopping needs safely and efficiently.
Tree lopping involves the maintenance, pruning and reshaping of trees by removing branches, limbs or sometimes even a section of the trunk. Our qualified arborists can advise you on your exact needs for any given situation, whether you need to prune, lopp or remove the tree entirely.
There are a number reasons why tree lopping might be the best solution for your garden or outdoor space. These include:
Many of our customers regularly use our tree lopping services to keep their garden looking its best all year around. Very often this requires simple pruning and branch removal, allowing your trees to focus their energy where they need it most to keep them looking vibrant and healthy. Not only do we have a deep understanding of what is required for different kinds of trees, we can advise when is best to prune and take care of any other species-specific requirements.
While large trees can provide wonderful shade and greenery, they can sometimes become an eyesore by dominating a garden or blocking views. We can advise on how best to bring a runaway tree under control, giving you all the benefits of shade and aesthetics without removing the tree entirely. Our highly trained arborists can find the perfect blend of form and function to help you meet your landscape design needs and keep your garden safe.
Damage and Disease
As they grow older, trees can become susceptible to damage from wind, pests, disease, lightning strikes or other factors. Not only is this detrimental to the health of the tree itself, it could lead to damage to your home or even injury to you or members of the public.
If a tree in your garden has sustained damage or disease, or a large limb is overhanging your home or a public area, we suggest that you seek advice immediately. Our experts can help you ascertain the extent of the problem and advise you on the best course of action. Taking care of sick, overgrown or damaged trees early can save on significant costs down the line.
Even if a tree does not pose an immediate danger to you or your property, our tree lopping services ensure it will remain within its safe boundaries and remain healthy for years to come. Our corrective and formative pruning know-how will ensure your tree will grow how and where you want it to, while our remedial and restorative expertise can bring older trees back to their former glory.
Trees growing near overhead electric lines can pose significant safety risks. Not only are the tree and the power lines at risk of damage, unchecked growth could lead to fire or electrocution. Tree lopping near electric lines should only be carried out by qualified arborist to the strictest safety standards.
At Tree Surgeons of WA, we have decades of experience removing branches, limbs and trees that are in danger of coming into contact with electric lines. Our crews are specially trained and fully equipped for both high-voltage and low-voltage work. We liaise with electricity supply authorities to ensure all work can be carried out safely and efficiently while meeting all local requirements.
Spotting the Danger Signs
While every tree and garden setting is unique, there are certain warning signs to look out for when it comes to keeping your home safe from tree damage. If you think a tree in your garden may need attention, look for the following signs:
- Dead wood, peeling bark or unseasonal brown leaves
- Leaning trees, especially if there is cracked or heaving soil on the side opposite the lean
- Exposed roots at the base of the tree
- Cracks or signs of weakness where multiple trunks meet
- Cracks or signs of weakness in limbs or branches after storms or strong winds
- Signs of weakness or rot in the roots
We recommend that you inspect your trees several times a year and especially after the seasons change. If you spot any of the above signs or have any doubts about the safety of your trees you should contact our trained advisors immediately.
