To prune or lop? A tale of tree pruning in Bundall
05 Nov 2018
If you're contemplating tree lopping in and around your Gold Coast property, STOP. This Bundall home contained a Poinciana Tree that had just grown too large - encumbering upon a beautiful backyard and family play area. The homeowner initially approached Tree Essence to conduct lopping the Poinciana Tree and whilst the request was not unusual, tree lopping is a procedure that members of the public often misquote and misunderstand.
Any reputable arborist would advise you to undertake tree pruning over tree lopping as there are considerable benefits:
- Lopped trees are hazards waiting to happen. The onset of a breeze may cause property or personal damage due to falling branches.
- Tree lopping fosters unstable growth and regular ongoing maintenance that may be counter-productive (and costly)
- Tree lopping causes stress to your overall tree's health. The tree's defence mechanisms will be affected, causing decay and attacks from pathogens.
- Tree Pruning is a safe and sustainable method of tree maintenance that may increase the overall attractiveness of your trees, and even improve the value of your home.
