As winter sets in, now is the time to get tree pruning work done. Pruning can greatly improve tree health, and provide an early insight into future problems.
We provide a tree pruning service in the Dandenong Ranges, and the towns adjacent such as Mt Evelyn, The Basin, Ferntree Gully, Belgrave and Monbulk.
Many of our customers have their trees dead wooded on an annual basis. This improves the appearance of the tree, reduces the risk of falling dead branches, and decreases the time the tree spends with uncollared tissue.
Often while the tree is being deadwooded, the annual shoots or epicormic growth are also removed. These tend to grow on live tissue on trunks throughout the tree, especially where there is sunlight.
Sometimes these can be valuable to the tree, as they increase the photosynthetic area available for photosynthesis.
Pruning trees should be done by someone with awareness in proper pruning technique. Significant damage can be done to the tree that can lead to a shortening of its serviceable life.
