They say nothing beats the beauty of a tree, but sometimes you need to give it some help. Tree lopping is an old, slightly controversial, process that can help your garden be the majestic place it is supposed to be. It entails cutting or trimming sections of a tree in order to achieve such a feat. Unlike ordinary gardening processes or techniques, however, it is highly suggested that you hire a professional for tree lopping services instead of doing it yourself to prevent any possible accidents or injuries.
What are the reasons for tree lopping?
There are a number of reasons why you would want to avail this service for your garden. You might want to clear off the branches that are currently obstructing your homes or power lines. Or maybe you might just want to cut off the dead branches that are in danger of falling off anyways or the tree limbs that can posed as a threat to your home if it got struck by strong winds and bad weather. Or you simply want to reshape the tree to make your overall landscape more appealing. One thing is certain, though, tree lopping and tree removal are two different process and shouldn’t be confused with one another.
When and how often should you tree lopped?
This is also one of the reasons why you should hire a professional – tree lopping is a very tricky business and if done wrong, the tree might end up in worse conditions than before. If done often enough, it can result to either having a mutilated tree or a tree that is slowly dying from the inevitable fungal and bacterial growth brought about by the regular trimmings. It is highly recommended that you consult those who are in the business of tree lopping first before trying to cut that tree.
How would you know if the person you hired is a professional?
Those who have the technical competence to cultivate, manage and efficiently care for trees, shrubs, and vines are called Arborists. They should have a business license to operate and a Certificate in Horticulture (or Arboriculture). Also, only arborists have the right equipment and knowledge in proper tree handling and lopping.
Again, tree lopping is a task not to be undertaken by yourself. Save yourself from imminent danger and lots of trouble – grab the phone and hire a professional to do it for you.
