Tree Trimming Brisbane QLD

The difference between tree trimming and tree pruning

For many of our clients, tree trimming and tree pruning are thought to be similar. You may even come across tree loppers who’ll use the two interchangeably.

But there is a difference between tree pruning and tree trimming; and here’s why.

Tree pruning

Proper maintenance and care is required for the optimal health and longevity of your trees. If trees are not properly cared for they can become diseased and potentially become a threat to people and to property.

Tree pruning by an arborist takes into consideration the continued health and growth of the tree; not just the here and now. The benefit of this is your trees will look healthy for longer as opposed to ragged from being arbitrarily cut.

There are safety reasons for having your trees pruned by an arborist such as:

  • Stopping trees from impacting power lines or telecommunication cables
  • Removing accidents and hazards of weak overextended branches

Tree pruning is the science of maintaining and keeping trees healthy, tree trimming on the other hand is for removing overgrown bushes that otherwise prevent shrubs from getting enough light and moisture.

Tree trimming Brisbane

Essentially, tree trimming is for aesthetics. Trimming is for tidying the appearance of a hedge or small shrub by trimming overgrown branches. It is also used to shape hedges and encourage growth.  When it comes to trees this is often referred to as crowning, as you don’t generally want to shape a tree.
