Pruning needs to be done with a good understanding of how the tree will respond to each cut. Improper pruning can cause damage to the tree which can result in shortening the tree’s life.

This can cost you additional time, further money and can put people and property at risk. A professional Arborist understands and complies to the Australian Standard AS 4373 (Pruning of Amenity Tree).
