Do your trees need shaping or size manipulation? Tree lopping may be the ideal tree maintenance procedure for you. Tree lopping is the removal and trimming of branches done to reduce or modify the shape and size of your tree. Typically, tree lopping is an aesthetic process that doesn’t consider the health or longevity of a tree. For our arborists here at Dynamic Arborist, we take a more holistic approach to tree lopping and make conscious decisions for the health of your trees.
Lopping can be detrimental to the health of your tree, if done improperly or without precision. It not only creates the potential for future branch growth to be weak and be more susceptible to snapping. It also exposes your trees to the vulnerabilities of decay and disease because of the stress and trauma that lopping causes. The open and exposed wounds from tree lopping is a prime invitation for pests to make their home in your tree. Again – these are some of the consequences of uncareful tree lopping practices.
Here at Dynamic Arborist, we are more aware of our methods and how they impact the trees that we are servicing. We take into account how much of the canopy needs to be cut away to accomplish the shaping desires of our client without depriving the tree of its prime energy reserves. Simply cutting off the top portion (crown) of the tree may look nice, but that can wreak havoc on the health and growth potential of your trees. Improper lopping techniques can also create more risk of weak branches growing-in, then snapping and falling at a later point. We pride ourselves in using high-end equipment that makes more precise and clean cuts, leaving your tree at less risk of breakage or weakening. Our equipment and expertise make us one of the best options for arborists in the Melbourne area.
Do you fall into the category of land owners here in Melbourne that wants their trees lopped? Is it because your tree is too big, obstructing your view, or too much to clean-up after? Consider calling in an expert like our professional team of arborists before taking the clippers into your own hands. Just climbing a tree with clippers to lop the tree on your own may leave your tree and yourself in more danger than calling a professional would. You may even consider tree pruning, relocating or tree removal first.
Our team at Dynamic Arborists is composed of highly trained and certified tree maintenance and care technicians that are well-equipped for any tree care project. With tree loppers, you run the risk of hiring an uncertified worker that is solely considerate of the short-term: a job complete and a paycheck. Our care team is more intentional about taking care of trees holistically and setting you – the project manager and/or homeowner owner – up with a healthy tree that has less risk of problems later on.
