Regular Tree Trimming is an essential part of tree maintenance. Neighbourhood conflicts or damage caused to adjoining fences results from a lack of regular tree trimming and yard maintenance. A good trim back every 2-3 years of your trees, boundary hedges and selective limb removal ensures you keep your privacy without causing unnecessary damage to property or neighbouring properties. It is also an effective way to keep track of potentially problem trees and have them removed if necessary.
Specialised trimming or pruning of your feature trees and seasonal trimming requirements also ensures your trees remain healthy and will look their best all year round. Specialised trimming includes:
Crown Lifting – Precise trimming and thinning out of large feature trees can create a beautiful canopy over your garden that ‘set’s the scene’ or frames the garden creating a picture of beauty. Trees such as the Poinciana and Jacaranda Tree require specialist trimming to create this magical umbrella shape year after year. Crown lifting removes the lower branches annually to keep a neat spread of foliage and flowers across the very top of the tree whilst Crown thinning reduces the density of the leaf canopy allowing the light and flowers to become more prominent. The Poinciana trees that line our streets are certainly a remarkable sight and well worth the care involved in keeping them looking their best for the next generation to appreciate.
Winter Pruning – pruning your trees in winter when growth is dormant is ideal so that as spring approaches foliage becomes thick, new and attractive. We offer great rates for winter pruning so you can be the envy of your neighbourhood and ensure your trees grow healthy and strong.
Storm Season Preparation – Trimming your trees prior to storm season is strongly recommended to ensure you remove potential hazards that could cause damage to your property or family once the storm season hits. Due to our climate, the Sunshine Coast can experience heavy rain and fierce winds that combine to cause trees to be blown over. High winds alone can break off large branches allowing them to fall on your assets. Overhanging branches contribute to clogging of gutters with leaves. A professional thinning of vegetation in late spring can reduce these risks. Trimming your trees prior to storm season is strongly recommended to ensure you remove potential hazards that could cause damage to your property or family once the storm season hits. Due to our climate, the Sunshine Coast can experience heavy rain and fierce winds that combine to cause trees to be blown over or uprooted. High winds alone can break off large branches allowing them to fall on your house or shed forcing costly repairs. Branches which overhang property will contribute to the clogging of gutters with leaves and in a heavy storm this could create overflowing and possible flooding in or around the home. A professional thinning of vegetation and removal of deadwood or overhanging trees can reduce these risks.
