WHY HIRE AN ARBORIST?
An Arborist is a specialist in the care of individual trees. Arborists are knowledgeable about the needs of trees and are trained and equipped to provide proper care. Proper tree care is an investment that can lead to substantial returns. Well cared-for trees are attractive and can add considerable value to your property. Poorly maintained trees can be a significant liability. Pruning or removing trees, especially large trees, can be dangerous work. Tree work should only be done by those trained and equipped to work safely in trees.*
As Arborists we are often asked to 'lop' trees, for a variety of reasons. This practice is misguided and as qualified arborists we only prune to Australian Standards. In most cases if the tree is well managed it will acheive an acceptable result for the client without risking permanent and irreversible damage to the tree by lopping. Further information regarding the adverse impacts of tree lopping is available using the following website link http://www.plantamnesty.org/stoptopping/5reasons.aspx.
