Tree Pruning

Tree Pruning Perth

Tree pruning in Perth might seem like the same thing as tree trimming, but the goal with pruning is different. For mature trees pruning is the practice of removing dying or dead branches from the tree. Doing this helps make safer and healthier trees. In addition to removing dead branches pruning can help make your trees more storm resistant.

Tree pruning can be dangerous work, so the knowledge and use of specialized equipment is very important.  It is not only important for the safety of the person(s) pruning the tree, but also for the surrounding property where the tree stands.  Homes, businesses, automobiles and passers by can be put at serious and unnecessary risk.  Other considerations need to be taken when working on trees that are next-to or near-by electrical power lines or have electrical lines running through their branches.

Tree Loppers Perth  can provide the services of a trained crew including professional arborists, required safety equipment, liability insurance and of course, knowledge and experience.
