Tree trimming and pruning

Tree cutting and trimming is dangerous and can result in serious injury, even death. That’s why it’s paramount that you always utilise the skills and experience of an accredited and trusted tree cutting business for all your trimming and tree cutting requirements.

In this day and age, where most people use Google to find a tree lopping company to trim or remove a tree, how do you know they’re reputable and have the expertise to complete the job safely?

Did you know that the tree lopping industry is unregulated?  So, that means anyone with a chainsaw can come to your home and cut down or trim your tree. They may have inadequate insurance and have no expertise in tree health.

At Banksia Arborcare, we are qualified arborists and horticulturists.  Head arborist and business owner, Chris Allchin, has undertaken 8 years of study to attain these qualifications.

Chris knows what he is doing, is passionate about the environment and is always happy to impart his broad plant care knowledge to clients.


Tree lopping / tree topping

When choosing a ‘tree lopping company’ you should avoid using ones that advertise ‘topping’ as a service provided. Professional arborists know topping (sometimes called ‘tree lopping’) is harmful to trees and is not an acceptable practice.

Banksia Arborcare is a reputable and highly experienced business in the tree industry with a great understanding of the negative effects ‘tree lopping’ can have on your trees and the wider environment.

As professional and qualified arborists and horticulturist, we don’t undertake any ‘tree lopping’ and don’t recommend employing tree loppers that don’t have arboriculture qualifications due to the detrimental impact they have on the environment.
