Tree Trimming

Tree Pruning, Trimming & Lopping

‘Tree lopping’ is not really the correct term to use, but the word ‘pruning’ is more widely used and is a technique used to ensure healthy tree growth and a natural shape.  It is also an important tree care activity as it will control disease in the tree and therefore improve safety.

Tree Pruning Before & After

Tree pruning is a vital part of maintaining the health of the tree and ensuring the safety of the environment. When trees are getting too close to power lines or are looking a little untidy, pruning will provide an effective change to the look and wellbeing of the tree.

Tree Removal

Tree removal is often necessary to ensure the security of assets and bushfire compliance. A sick tree can also become a dangerous tree and therefore removal is the only option.

Confined Space Tree Removal

A South West Tree Services Specialty in the Margaret River Region

Confined space tree removal should always be left to a qualified arborist for insurance and safety reasons. Our staff are all qualified in advanced rigging so if the tree is structurally sound, we can rig off the tree and carefully remove large trees from confined spaces. We also work closely with a local cranage company if the tree is not structurally sound so the removal can be achieved without damage to the client’s assets.
