Did you know that healthy and well-maintained trees can add significant value to your residential or commercial property?
Think of skilful formative pruning as a beneficial ‘planned injury’ to a tree. It’s essentially preventative maintenance to help it grow stronger, lusher, and keep it growing neat and tidy.
At Arbor Operations, we understand the importance of correctly pruning and maintaining your trees and hedges. Brisbane tree pruning companies without a strong understanding of arboriculture — the cultivation, management, and scientific study of trees, shrubs and woody plants — can cause significant damage to your trees, wounding them and ruining their aesthetic value.
At Arbor Operations we understand for optimum health and longevity, trees require proper care and maintenance. Trees that are not maintained properly could become diseased or prove a threat to the safety of people and property. Tree pruning is a vital process to ensure the optimal condition and growth of trees.
For best results, tree pruning should only undertaken by individuals with an in-depth knowledge of tree biology.Get In Touch

When we visit a client about their tree problem, we very often find that the initial stressor for the tree occurred due to incorrect pruning techniques last time their tree was pruned.
For example, every Poinciana we treat for caterpillar defoliation has been badly pruned in the last two years. As qualified arborists, we are trained in and have been tested on correct pruning methods.
Every species of tree is unique. Different tree species grow at dramatically different rates and factors like the tree’s location, age and condition will impact how often it needs to be trimmed or pruned. This means there’s no simple answer without examining your tree onsite.
The best way to establish a suitable trimming and pruning routine for your tree is to arrange for a local Brisbane arborist to walk around your property with you to examine each tree. Drawing upon their wealth of experience, they will be able to provide an accurate estimate of how often to prune your various trees to keep them healthy, strong and well-kept. A skilled arborist may even be able to help you decide on an ideal rotation for trimming and pruning your trees, to space out this work throughout the year and help you budget and manage your landscaping costs.
While there are no hard and fast rules, experts in arboriculture often advise people to prune young trees more often, to help the young tree cultivate better form and boost its vitality. This will decrease the need for future pruning as your tree matures and lower your pruning costs over its lifetime.
If you would like a consultation for Brisbane tree pruning, including an examination of your trees, we would love to talk with you.
Ideally, a tree should be pruned more often while it is still young. A skilled arborist will use Brisbane tree trimming and pruning to help improve trunk development and guide the spacing of branches, both vertically and radially, giving it a stronger scaffold structure. Ultimately, this will reduce the need for further corrective pruning as the tree grows into maturity.
Inviting a qualified arborist to your property when you are first thinking of planting a tree is the best way to set your garden and trees up for future healthy growth.
