Professional Tree Pruning Service

A thriving garden requires regular attention and proper pruning. Trees are no different. Left unchecked, excess tree growth can lead to brittle limbs, weather damage and the formation of dangerous stress points that leave trees immensely vulnerable.

But not to worry. There’s a definite solution.

Total Tree Care’s team of professional arborists provide expert pruning care for your trees. We pay close attention to your arboreal landscape during its formative stages and help promote healthy, lively trees that increase in strength as they age. Our constant goal is to preserve your trees and your Melburnian agricultural legacy for years to come.

Here’s an overview of some of our comprehensive tree maintenance services:

Formative Tree Pruning

The pruning of young trees aids in correcting structural issues that affect your trees and their environment. If you choose to neglect the pruning process, the resulting problems may quickly become too much for most gardeners to handle. Total Tree Care pruning services get to the root of any potential issues and can stop them before they cause irreparable harm.

Our pruning services guide trees toward a direction of growth that’s both strong and sustainable. In the case of shade trees, our services can also help to sculpt arboreal structures in a way that offers maximum cover without blocking sunlight entirely. In addition, Total Tree Care’s pruning process can assist you in managing botanical privacy screens or hedges in order to maintain visual barriers within your garden while still leaving room for natural development.

Pruning for Weight Reduction

Supporting a natural crown shape allows trees to absorb vital sunlight. By selectively removing branches within a tree crown, Total Tree Care’s extensive pruning services can lower the overall density of your individual trees, reduce strain on the trunks and improve general stability. Plus, our procedures for directed growth can likewise shape the coverage of each branch to allow just the right amount of light into your garden; this will give your other plants the solar power they need while simultaneously providing pleasant shading when necessary. Judicious tree pruning also reduces the structural load of the branches, ultimately resulting in a beautiful tree that will stand as an asset to your property.

Pruning for Hazard Reduction

Dead branches within a tree canopy can dry up and split from the main trunk. This falling deadwood phenomenon represents a serious safety hazard and calls for careful removal of any lifeless tree limbs. Such preventative measures can drastically reduce the risk of personal injury and incidental property damage. At Total Tree Care, we know that diseased limbs (or limbs that have been subject to pest infestation or severe weather exposure) must be removed in order to avoid potential disaster and encourage tree recovery. As such, we’re extraordinarily skilled in identifying and treating various tree illnesses and securing against tree damage. Our tree pruning procedures will find and neutralise any tree disease culprits and pave the way for your trees to flourish.

General Tree Pruning, Lopping or Removal

It’s very important to have confidence in your arborists and their ability to tend to your trees. The indiscriminate removal of branches can lead to permanent damage to the tree itself as well as to its surrounding ecosystem. In addition, the reckless lopping of limbs can cause unsightly stumps, reactive growth and the breeding of disease vectors.

Total Tree Care takes pride in Melbourne’s celebrated wealth of trees. We never advise the random amputation of branches from healthy trees and we only resort to complete tree removal when there is no better alternative.
