As you’re probably well aware, leaves begin falling from the trees every autumn time, and branches once shrouded in a dense canopy of foliage, start to reveal themselves yet again. And more than a few folk in W. Australia really don’t like having to deal with such a mess.
However, there are some that enjoy the opportunity which this time of the year provides and like to inspect every tree’s canopy. This is where those kind of people usually make a point of noting down every branch which needs removing.
Guidelines for Pruning
Tree limbs which should be pruned are ones:
- Which are growing inward or competing with other branches.
- Which are diseased or dead.
- That cross or chafe others and are damage them.
- Which will open up the canopy to let in more sunlight to reach the Earth.
Just like with many other kinds of operations, there is the right way and wrong one to getting it completed. If cut properly, trees will recover rapidly, and if not, it may cause some discord.
This is where professionals from tree lopping to stump removal in Perth, can enter the scene and expertly help out and get everything taken care of just as you prefer it and in an expert fashion.
Making it Easy
Specialists in their business would advise you to do for a three pronged approach, starting with:
- Make the first cut around 30 to 60 centimetres away from the tree trunk and on the underside of the branch and cut into it about one third of the way.
Note – Please understand that this is a vital point in the entire operation.
- Next, is cut number two which is on the top of the branch, and once again 30- 60 centimetres out from the first cut and cut completely through the branch.
The branch will then break loose as you saw through it, and due to the fact that you have already made that first cut on the underside, there’s no way that the bark will tear down and damage the tree trunk.
- The final cut is exactly where the branch joins the trunk. You’ll see a flared area right there and that’s where you’ll want to make the final cut. (So that the flare will remain there afterwards)
If this is carried out properly, the flare will heal itself and fill in with new bark and scar tissue.
(You can tell when the tree is healing, due to being able to notice what looks like a doughnut shape now growing where the cut occurred.
And that’s it, job done! Not too difficult, but make double sure to be cautious when scaling a ladder. Make sure that it is solidly secure, and may any limbs which get operated on, be the trees and not yours!
Don’t forget – If the job(s) look like too much trouble, simply get in specialists who can easily deal with it.
