Tree lopping has a bad name among arborists. It’s synonymous with ‘lopping’ of trees, to take off the crown of the tree which results in a tree lacking structural integrity. Anyone can call themselves a tree lopper, whether trained or untrained, insured or not.
We are tree loppers, to the extent we remove and trim trees and palms, so by all means ask us for a quote if you are looking for tree lopping. However, as arborists we work to Australian Standards and are certified by the International Society of Arboriculture. It means we have learned how to lop, better to say prune, trees in a way that takes care of the tree or palm.
If we are removing it, we will do so having been trained in safe work procedures. We are also monitored in our training and have to undergo ongoing education. This website is an example of our committment to our profession.
The proprietor of Brisbane Trees and Gardens started out working as a tree lopper over a decade ago. However, with knowledge and education came a different style of work. Arboriculture is taking over from tree lopping as committed tree service workers learn how to prune trees in a way that benefits the tree in both its health and aesthetics.
It also means we can provide other services to maintain the health of your trees. We can diagnose diseases and nutritional deficiencies and test your soil for problems. We can cable trees with structural faults to extend their life. We can even transplant trees of high value rather than cutting them down.
Our prices are competitive with tree loppers in Brisbane, so you aren’t paying anymore for professional service. We hope it gives you confidence in our committment to our work as well as assurance you aren’t dealing with tradesmen lacking in knowledge.
As part of our certification we commit to not spiking trees unnecesarily unless removing them. This keeps trees from unnecessary wounding which can lead to infection by bacteria. Tree spikes also cause unsightly scarring on trees.
Further, pruning trees incorrectly causes fast-growing spindly branches called watersprouts. The fast growth of these branches means you need to keep having your trees trimmed every couple of years. By trimming trees to Australian Standards we avoid watersprouts so your trees don’t need regular pruning. We train trees in the way you want them to grow.
