Tree pruning entails several tree care elements including trimming, cutting back, clipping, shaping, weight distribution, and weight reduction.

Pruning assists in keeping a tree healthy. Dead foliage and branches are removed, thereby getting rid of excess weight. Pruning is beneficial as it allows for new, healthy growth.

Why is tree pruning necessary?

Tree pruning boosts the life expectancy and health of a tree. It’s also important in mitigating risks associated with excess growth.

For instance, pruning removes overweight branches, thereby preventing a tree from growing in an imbalanced manner.

Upon pruning, the weight of a tree gets distributed evenly, thereby reducing the risk of an overweight branch snapping. Also, it reduces the risk of an entire tree falling as a result of strong winds.

Our Tree Pruning Process

Every tree requires regular pruning during its life to keep it healthy, attractive, and safe. Some tree varieties, like hedges, require more frequent pruning as they tend to grow more rapidly. Larger mature trees require less frequent pruning as they don’t grow rapidly.

Pruning them keeps the branches structurally secure and shapes the canopies. If you’re not sure whether your trees require pruning, contact arborists at Sydney Tree Services for professional assessment.

The process employed in tree pruning depends on the tree species, size, location, condition, and surrounding hazards. When dealing with hedges and small trees, our team works efficiently and quickly using tools such as hedge trimmer, ladder, hand saw, and secateurs to remove any excess weight and shape the tree.

For larger mature trees, the pruning process demands more crew, caution, safety, and time. Essentially, a crew of four is required when pruning larger trees. The team comprises a climber, an extra climber for emergencies, and a ground team.

Our team uses the following process when pruning trees:

Step 1: The crew analyses the site for safety. Safety analysis identifies any potential hazards on the site. It also involves planning the job appropriately.

Step 2: The primary climber proceeds to climb up the tree. Climbing spikes won’t be used when pruning as they may damage the tree and make it susceptible to diseases. Our climbers only use tree climbing spikes during tree removal.

Step 3: Next, safety lines are secured in place. A rope for lowering branches will also get prepared at this step.

Step 4: Once the lines are in place, the climber proceeds to clip excess leaves and sticks, lop overweight or overgrown branches, and shape the canopy with climbing and hand saws.

Step 5: Each larger piece is attached to the rope and lowered down.

Step 6: The ground team will get rid of larger pieces by chipping them with a wood chipper. They’ll also clear any other green waste from the site.

Step 7: Any remnant green waste gets broken down with a wood chipper. Once done, it’s disposed of from the site.
