There are many aspects to tree care and contrary to popular belief, it is not limited to simple tree and stump removal or tree pruning and trimming though these are also its very important components. In fact, if you are a resident of Melbourne, you’ll do well to contact experienced and trained arborists for any tree care activity.
What then are the activities carried out by a qualified arborist in Melbourne –
- Tree and stump removal – Trees may require removal for a number of reasons. First, weak and diseased trees can fail and topple over even in moderate winds and should be removed to avoid harm to life and property below. Where trees have outgrown the space they are planted in or where they are causing structural damage to homes, fences, driveways and so on, removal is once again recommended.Finally, sometimes it may be necessary to remove a few old and badly formed trees to make way for some beautiful young trees as a part of a landscape re-design or re-fresh. Amateurs should not attempt tree removal as they will not be able to control where the tree will fall and hence risk damage to life and property. The wisest decision is to leave this type of work to qualified and trained arborists in Melbourne.
- Tree Pruning and Trimming – This activity is primarily carried out to give a desired shape to a tree to help the tree grow and to prevent and treat disease. It is also carried out to remove limbs that interfere with utilities or structuresand those that obstruct streets or sidewalks. Pruning is also required to remove hazardous branches from the tree’s canopy and to increase light penetration and reduce wind resistance within the canopy.Only trained arborists should be used to carry out this type of activity as they know the extent of trimming that can be safely carried out without harming or weakening the tree. Furthermore they have been trained in pruning technique to ensure their cuts are clean and will not leave an adverse impact on the tree’s health and vigour.
- Preparing tree reports and surveys – Most local councils have strict laws regarding protection of trees on private property. For any new construction, developmental work or tree removal, statutory sanctions are required. A qualified arborist in Melbourne will help you to expedite the required permit application process.They can prepare the permit applications on your behalf and provide arborist reports to accompany these applications where required.
