Even the most experienced home gardeners recognise the need to call in a certified arborist for heavy pruning and tree lopping. That’s because even if they themselves skilled horticulturists, they understand there are a number of safety risks of DIY, as well as a huge number of benefits of working with a professional.
It might seem so easy to grab some shears and start trimming until your tree or shrub looks neater, but this is definitely the wrong way to do it. Trees need to be trimmed at specific times of year and in different ways, depending on the species of tree or the reason you’re trimming. Doing it the wrong way can harm your trees, cause irreversible damage and – in severe cases – can even cause tree death.
All the tree loppers here at Brisbane Treeworx have plenty of experience and the skills needed to identify your trees and shrubs, then prune them in the right way, at the right time and for the right purpose. Here are a number of reasons you should give Brisbane Treeworx a call to hire a tree lopper and keep your trees in tip-top condition:
A professional tree lopper can see problems that you can’t
An untrained eye will find it very difficult to spot some issues, like minor decay, specific tree diseases, unstable branches or crowding. These issues might pose a danger of dropping branches or falling if left untreated, so calling in a tree lopper to properly diagnose the issues will save you a lot of money and trouble in the future.
It’s even more important if your trees are in areas where falling branches could cause a hazard to your property or family, vehicles or even power lines. If you call in a professional arborist from Brisbane Treeworx though, you can be sure you’ll be safe and sound next time one of those Queensland storms hit!
A good tree lopper will know about local council and laws
A good tree lopper (like those at Brisbane Treeworx) will be familiar with the ins and outs of your local council, including what their laws are in regards to tree pruning, lopping or removal. At Brisbane Treeworx, we are passionate about having local knowledge of our flora and laws surrounding it. We can help guide you through any application requirements you may need to remove or lop a tree on your land.
A professional tree lopper will be fully insured and trained to be safe and efficient
A professional tree lopper group, like Brisbane Treeworx, will have the legal requirements needed to make certain all the work we do (including both residential and commercial projects) will be covered by general and liability insurance in case it doesn’t all go to plan. We also follow the Workers Compensation Act to ensure our staff are kept safe and sound and we wear and use protective clothing and equipment at all times.
Our staff are continuously trained up to the latest standards and accreditations so that we can properly handle all the job requirements to ensure quality, safety and that environmental damage is minimised. We train our staff to work in a variety of situations such as from cramped spaces and heights.
