Most people believe that pruning trees is only required to attain a desired shape or to lop off a few limbs if they overhang a neighboring property. While these are very valid reasons to undertake tree pruning in Box Hill, it is definitely not the entire picture.Proper pruning is essential in developing a tree with a strong structure and desirable form. Trees that receive the appropriate pruning measures while they are young will require little corrective pruning when they mature.
Effective tree pruning requires an intricate and in-depth knowledge of trees as each cut has the potential to change the growth of the tree. Amatuers often resort to random pruning until the tree achieves the required form, but as any arborist will tell you, poor pruning technique can cause damage that lasts a life time. Further, if the extent of trimming exceeds about 30% of the foliage, the tree will become structurally weak as the tree’s capacity to produce its food is reduced. All of these factors will be taken into account by the arborist before undertaking any pruning works and this is why you should seek the assistance of trained arborists to prune your precious trees.
Hazardous tree management is also an integral part of tree pruning in Box Hill. Motorists are only too aware of the dangers of trees which block their view of the street. Similarly, limbs that grow and touch overhead power lines can cause a major blaze, particularly in the dry season when the wood is dry and brittle. Trimming the offending branches is the only responsible option in these cases.
