Before exploring the reasons for tree removal in Melbourne, it is necessary to understand that although it may seem easy, bringing down a tree should not be treated as a DIY task. Tree removal is best left in the hands of trained arborists who have the necessary expertise and equipment to complete the job safely and effectively. Amateurs will simply have no control over where a tree will fall and if not done correctly,the tree can cause damage to property or people within the vicinity.
In Melbourne, there are different motives for tree removal, the most important being hazardous tree management. Trees that are struck by lightning or are old and diseased become structurally weak and can topple over in high winds and storms. This is particularly dangerous for trees in public parks or roadsides. Arborists often try to prop up such trees with cables and braces but in extreme cases, removing them is the only safe option.
Another reason for tree removal in Melbourne is to beautify the landscape. This might seem strange because it is generally felt that planting of trees aesthetically improves the look of the area. But there’s a flip side to it. Trees that had once been planted too close together grow up to develop dense canopies that cut off sunlight from the ground. Lack of adequate sunlight also reduces the food producing capacity of the trees thereby weakening them. Selectively removing trees that are crowded together can free up the landscape and make way for fresh small plants or colourful flowerbeds.
