Recent changes to view pruning in Brisbane
There has been recent changes to view pruning laws in Brisbane. This impacts your trees because you may be forced to maintain a view for a neighbour's benefit. Although the neighbour may have to pay for the job, getting the right person for the job is important. This type of pruning is something that is often poorly done by a lopper. There is a huge difference in getting a height reduction for view done properly by a trained arborist and one done poorly by an untrained lopper or door knocker. Having your trees cut by someone who is untrained will negatively affect the trees' health and also rapidly increase the regrowth time for the owner (if it grows back at all), not to mention aesthetics after the job is completed.
A tree that has been professionally pruned will retain good shape during regrowth, reduce the amount of future pruning, be safer with less failures and be much healthier, keeping your trees looking great.
Above is a great example of a view prune completed properly, recently pruned by Advanced Arboriculture. We have done a great job of keeping the large cuts to a minimum, decreasing the recovery time and severity of wounds. Knowing what to cut and where is important in reducing regrowth and to shape the tree for the future. Taking all this into consideration ensures your tree will be looking its best for years to come.
