Trees add character, aesthetic value and sometimes even delicious fruit to enjoy, to any garden space and they are rightly beloved by many property owners across Australia. However, like any plant in your garden, they require a certain amount of love, care, and general maintenance in order to keep them healthy and looking great for years to come. Usually, you will need to employ the services of a professional arborist in order to perform this work in accordance with local regulations. Trees of a certain age are protected and any work performed on them must be done by a qualified professional, so let’s take a look at some reasons you might need find an arborist to perform tree lopping in Perth!
One of the most common reasons for calling a tree lopper is to improve the aesthetic value of the tree to your liking. Maybe the tree is growing outwards unevenly and you want to achieve a more symmetrical look, or perhaps you want the tree to become taller by cutting underlying branches as to focus growth nutrients in other areas. A fully qualified arborist will be able to consult you on the best way to achieve the aesthetic result you want.
As with all plants, trees sustain themselves and gain the nutrients to grow through a process known as “photosynthesis”, in which the trees leaves absorb nutrients from sunlight. However, the tree will also exponentially grow its branches and trees in order to sustain and expand its rate of growth over the years and in its quest to do so, it can sometimes interfere with the sunshine that falls into your property. A tree lopper will be able to help you cut back the branches of the tree and discourage future growth while at the same time keeping the tree safe and healthy.
Sometimes trees, through either overgrowth or disease or by natural means like lightning and strong winds, can become unstable, weak or otherwise structurally insecure and can pose an immediate danger to the surrounding environment, buildings and people nearby. In these cases, sometimes an arborist can repair or cut back the tree to remove the danger, however, sometimes the damage is significant enough to warrant the removal of the entire tree. Either way, you will need not only an arborist but most likely some kind of local municipal inspector to assess the damage.
While some people deliberately plant fruit-bearing trees in their garden in order to reap the benefits of the fruit they produce, for others, ones that are already situated on their property can become a nuisance. For older people or the disabled for example, it can prove more difficult to gather and dispose of the fruit produced, causing it to decay on the lawn. Some other fruit-bearing tree’s fruit are also not actually edible and can be a waste of time to have in your garden. An arborist can help you come up with a solution for this.
