Pruning a Tree is Essential for Safety, Structure and Its Beauty and Health

Tree pruning is an important task and the most common tree maintenance undertaking best handled by a professional. Trees out in the wild do a great job is keeping themselves trimmed, but landscape trees and trees close to homes and areas where people frequently visit, need to be carefully maintained for safety as well as keeping them in beautiful shape. With tree trimming in Brisbane, you can be assured of experience and professionalism in the way your trees are trimmed.

Pruning is a great way to encourage new growth and improve the overall health of the tree. However, randomly cutting off a lot of branches is not necessarily good for the tree. Leaves are where the tree makes the sugar it needs for energy to grow, so when you give a tree a heavy pruning, you are depleting it of a huge source of stored energy. This can cause a lot of stress to the tree.

If there is an insect infestation, removing the infested branches and thinning down the branches of the tree is beneficial. This will increase the air going through the branches and help reduce the pest problem.

Another great reason for aesthetic tree care is if you live near a lake or river and your view has been blocked by over grown trees. This is when tree pruning in Brisbane can use their expertise and trim the tree without hurting it, and at the same time restore your view.

One of the reasons it is best not attempt to prune your tree yourself, is that you can damage the tree by not cutting in the proper way. A wrong cut can last the lifetime the tree, and in the worst case, shorten the life of the tree.

You are also putting yourself at risk of being injured when you attempt to climb ladders and work with sharp heavy equipment. For example, if the branch that needs to be cut is very large, its weight needs to be reduced before it is cut. Otherwise, it could cause damage as well as, it will a lot more difficult to move and clean.
