Tree Trimming, Cutting & Pruning
You know how your hairdresser always tells you that you need to trim the ends so your hair will grow faster? This is exactly the case with trees! We take a little (or a lot) of the top, side or centre so your tree can extravagantly grow. You don’t have to be a millionaire to afford our services. Rest assured though, when we’re done with your garden you’ll feel like a millionaire.
The old adage says that prevention is better than cure. And it is. It really is. What happens when you don’t listen to your hairdresser and only see her once every three years before a cousins’ wedding? Split ends, my friends. Split ends are essentially a process whereby your hair splinters. It’s exactly the same with branches. Untrimmed, unpruned branches get weak, they splinter and before you know it, you hear a loud thump in the middle of the night and a car alarm going off. The unimaginable has happened.
The most significant difference between trimming and pruning is that pruning is more about removing excess branches. Trimming on the other hands promotes healthy growth and provides the tree with a chance to bloom or blossom optimally.
The benefits are endless.

Removing trees or parts of trees require skills and experience. One should never operate dangerous tools and equipment (like chainsaws) without experience. It’s also more of a team-centric task. Removing parts of a tree is definitely not a one man show. Even if you yourself are skilled and confident in operate a chainsaw in order to cut a tree, your assistants should also be equally skilled.

This entails regular maintenance. It goes further than shearing away at branches, but can also entail snipping roots when they’ve decayed or died. Regular cutting will ensure that branches don’t find themselves entangled between electrical wires, fences or buildings. Don’t try to fix the problem, prevent it entirely.
When the structural integrity of branches has been compromised, it’s better to cut it off and provide a chance to grow anew. Its also easier to prune younger, suppler trees as younger plants limit the chances of intrusion and decay.
There are specialised pruning techniques for rose trees, grapevines and fruit trees. Depending on the tree, we will apply the most suitable practice in order to obtain maximum health and growth. This will have a major positive impact on your harvest or bloom. You will most definitely get A+ results!
One of the most common practices is dead wooding. This entails removing damaged, decaying parts of the tree as they will decay up to a point where they fall off the tree. Strong winds and stormy rains will help this slow process along a little too speedily. Damage can be caused before you can make a plan to remove the branch. Dead wooding is especially important in instances where trees hang over public roads, houses or public places where there’s a lot of traffic. The more people, cars or structures – the more dangerous the situation.
There are different ways of thinning branches to enhance health. Through a process of crown and canopy thinning, branches are selectively removed from the canopy of the tree whereby more light can enter and photosynthesis can do its thing!
Lifting the crown entails removing the lowest branches in order to ensure vehicles and people can easily pass underneath. Then there is directional or formative pruning whereby branches are removed in order to give the tree a specific shape.
Thinning, which entails removing all limbs or branches is recommended where there is a lot of damage or dead branches. Removing these deadbeat limbs will revitalise the whole tree and provided and excellent opportunity for regrowth.
The process whereby fruit trees are cut is referred to as tree lopping. Specialised methods are used to stimulate growth, though at the same time maintaining a small frame so fruit picking is an easier task.
