Formative Pruning

Pruning trees while they are still young will save you time and money in the long run.
Establishing a good structure of primary branches while your tree is young means it will develop a strong framework that requires less corrective pruning as it matures.

Getting in early encourages sound trunk development and growth, and also provides an opportunity to remove any structural defects before they become bigger problems.

Pruning young trees is often referred to as ‘training’ the tree while it’s still in its growth phase. 

The ability to shape the structural integrity of trees at a young age is even known to make them more resilient to harsh weather conditions such as storms when they mature.

Deadwood Removal

Do you have dead branches on your trees? If dead branches are not removed they can pose a serious risk to your property, particularly if they’re hanging over your home.
Deadwood is simply nature’s way of trees rejuvenating themselves. As trees grow they often shed their unwanted branches and replace them with new ones.
We can remove the dead branches from your tree to ensure your property is safe, your trees continue to grow to their full potential, and the natural aesthetics of your area is maintained.
Remember, don’t wait for a storm to come through your property – be prepared by maintaining your trees and removing unwanted hazards.

Weight Reduction

Is your tree starting to impede on nearby power lines, grow closer to your roof or block the sun from your favourite spot?
If there’s one thing we know about trees, it’s that they don’t always grow how or where we want them to.
Weight reduction refers to reducing your trees spread through selective branch removal, while also maintaining its good health, natural form and structural integrity.

This corrective measure means you can continue to live harmoniously with your tree in the urban environment for many years to come.

Hedge Trimming

If kept in good condition, hedges have the potential to be the standout feature on your property – but regular maintenance is absolutely critical to achieving this.

At Arborcraft we understand that hedge trimming is a skill, and that’s why we have dedicated members of our team who specialise in the task. 

We have the skills, experience and equipment to trim hedges of all sizes, and depending on the species, mould them to a shape you like with strong attention to detail and precision.

Not only will your hedges prove valuable as screens, but with regular maintenance these hedges can be the most attractive features of your garden.

We can offer advice on the best plant species and regular care plan to meet your hedge requirements, and to ensure you get optimal results from your hedge.

Habitat Pruning

Would you like to attract more birds and wildlife to your property?

Hundreds of Australian wildlife species use tree hollows for nesting sites, shelters and safe refuges – and with exciting new concepts we can bring these into your very own backyard.

A growing trend, habitat pruning allows you to turn dead or living trees into safe and valuable habitat for a wide range of native species.

We can identify what types of trees would be best suited to prune for habitat on your property. Hollows can accommodate existing wildlife or be used to encourage new species into your area.

Before you know it you would have created a new ecosystem in your very own backyard.

Cabling and Bracing

Does your tree have dangerous limbs that are posing a threat to your property? 

Sometimes due to the size of your tree we can’t remove the dangerous limbs without causing significant harm to your tree through heavy pruning or removing the tree entirely.

Cabling and bracing are techniques which allow us to provide a support system for your tree, while reducing the risk to your property and maintaining your tree’s health.
It uses other limbs as anchors, taking the weight off the weaker and more fragile ones.

We perform two different types of bracing:

1) The use of steel rods bolted into the tree to provide rigid support. 

2) The use of a flexible nylon bracing system which is non-invasive and allows trees to move freely. However, this is not a fail-safe system as the bracing is not UV resistant, as such, we recommend annual inspections.

Arborcraft can inspect your trees for structural weaknesses and recommend the best type of cable bracing to meet your needs.
