Strengthen Your Trees' Structure
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.
Detailed Pruning by Licensed Arborists
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.
Professional Pruning for All Tree Stages
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.
Supporting a natural crown shape allows trees to absorb vital sunlight. By selectively removing branches within a tree crown, we 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.
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.
