Unsightly. Wild. Dangerous. These are words used to describe trees and shrubbery that are ill maintained and can compromise not just your property value, but also your safety, if not carefully considered. Trees that aren’t trimmed or otherwise properly maintained, can prove hazardous if they lead to blocked gutters because of shedding leaves, or create blindspots that make it dangerous to pull into, or out of, your own driveway.

Your surroundings will always need a little maintenance, and just like you would conduct routine updates to your homes when it comes to paint and furniture, your gardens and green spaces will also need that kind of upkeep. Shrubs and flower beds need to be raked, trimmed and weeded. Doing it yourself can be therapeutic, but bringing in professionals on a scheduled basis means you are ensuring everything is kept up to date.  

Depending on the origins of the varieties of greenery you have, the maintenance schedule can be as often, or as seldom as you require. The best way to ascertain what you need would be to give us a call, and let our team of professionals give you an idea of what you might be looking at in terms of work to be done.

But trees that aren’t properly Maintained or pruned change the look of surrounding and make it unpleasant for the eye. They can obstruct driveways and paths, fill gutters with leaves, obstruct light coming through windows and overhang neighbouring properties. They can also be a Hazard when in contact with electrical and other telecommunication cables. Loose Branches can be a Hazard to the surrounding or the property during a storm or a windy day.

The Professionals at Redback Tree Services can help you shape your hedges

For hedges to provide privacy and act as a fence, they must be trimmed regularly. Therefore, hedge trimming should be done regularly to get the best result, especially when the hedge is still growing.

When a hedge is trimmed, it will grow thicker, and if it isn’t trimmed correctly, it will grow moderately, which doesn’t result in enough thickness. If the hedge is not trimmed regularly, it will lose its aesthetic appeal and won’t provide optimal privacy for its owners. Not all hedges need trimming frequently. Some only grow during spring or summer, and others are very slow growers, so a hedge-trimming once or twice a year is sufficient.

In our field of expertise, we understand the importance of pruning garden hedges, plant species such as roses, fruit trees, shrubs and even small trees on a regular basis. In addition to that, our team at Redback Tree Services also ensures that your plants adhere to the seasonal soil maintenance ratio and survive through the winter, so they can flourish in the summer.

In fact, this is a question that our clients often ask us about when is the best time to prune or maintain their trees. The scientific answer on when’s best to prune a tree would be during the dormant or winter season since the tree is storing its energy and will not be drastically affected during the growing season.

In conclusion, while it is generally recommended to prune a tree during its dormant season, the effects on the tree are not necessarily significant. It is always important to follow industry standards and not remove more than 25% of the canopy at a time. Additionally, if heavier pruning is necessary, it needs to be done on species that are tolerant or for safety reasons. Fruit trees should only be pruned when necessary for yield production – otherwise, the timing does not matter

As long as they are maintained properly, you might want or need a hedge in your garden for many reasons, including to screen the neighbors, to gain some shade in some sunny spots, or to simply look great.

To ensure that hedges look their best, a twice-yearly maintenance trim is recommended. This applies to hedges already in good condition and needing light pruning; if more drastic cuts are needed, trimming more frequently may be necessary so the growth can cover any gaps opened up. The quality of care is evidenced by the number of times a hedge is trimmed, thus making it healthier and lusher. Furthermore, regular trims also make it easier to maintain the desired shape.

You may be able to prune trees that are growing over your boundary from an adjacent property, subject to certain conditions. You have the lawful right to abate this problem and can trim any encroaching branches. However, if the tree is deemed ‘significant’ or ‘regulated’, our experienced arborists will provide you with expert guidance. If the tree is located on the boundary line, it could be considered jointly owned, which necessitates both owners agreeing to any pruning plans. Should you have any doubts regarding any of these matters, please contact us and one of our arborists will be happy to help.

Many people believe that they can prune up to 30% off of their significant trees without council approval. However, this isn’t the case. You may be able to remove up to 30% of a tree under certain conditions, including removing dead or diseased wood or branches that pose a material risk to a building or people, as part of the legislation relating to regulated and significant trees. It may be necessary for a qualified arborist to determine this and Council approval may be required.

You should ensure the following before having your regulated or significant tree pruned:

The tree pruning complies with the Australian Standard AS 4373-2007 ‘Pruning of amenity trees’. Qualified arborists perform the pruning.
