How tree lopping equals less stress

You might not associate tree lopping with less stress and labour, but it’s certainly true. Not only will you remove the task of raking up leaf litter, but you can also remove the access pests will get to your home. Plus, there’s finally room for the fun type of gardening.

 

  • Less gutters to clean

Heavy winds, rain, and age will make leaves fall off the trees in your backyard en mass. Once a year, or God forbid twice, somebody needs to get up on the roof and clean out the gutters. This is all courtesy of the big backyard gumtree.

Gutters get clogged with leaf debris and will start to smell if they aren’t cleaned out. The same goes for your driveway gutters. Ordering an assessment and having your trees removed equals less manual labour for you through the year

 

  • No more pests

Trees are happy homes to birds and the occasional koala. But some homeowners aren’t aware that long branches also make it easier for pests to get to your house. One of them is the possum.

Cute now but…

Yes, possums are cute with their big eyes and soft fur. But they dig into roofs and make nests there. Possums normally live in the trees and higher-up areas to avoid predators. Inside a roof is the best place for them to be in terms of protection. But then you have to live through sleepless nights wondering if there is a poltergeist running around your roof making terrifying hissing noises.

 

  • Gardening made better

Seed pods from trees are dangerous if they aren’t raked before lawn mowing. You don’t need an extra chore. There’s better types of gardening to do.

When the tree lopping is done, there’s suddenly more space for the fun types of gardening. You can make a veggie patch. Create large garden boxes full of flowers. Or you can create an outdoor living area where you can enjoy the sunshine instead of feeling cold in the shade from the tree.

Is your house storm ready? Get your trees under control.

Queensland is notorious for storm season, and tall trees are major hazards, especially if they fall on power lines. Our expertise has prevented many deadly accidents and insurance headaches. Here’s how we can help you do the same.

 

We’re there when you need us

Trees, Palms and Stumps is available 24 hours 7 days a week. Our services aren’t limited to homeowners. Businesses across Brisbane like real estate agents, insurance companies, and schools have us on call when major work needs to get done. Our reach goes from the CBD all the way to Edens Landing.

 

Lop until it drops

Cutting a tree properly is a science. You don’t just cut it at the base and yell ‘timber!’Arborists are also known as tree surgeons because there’s a special method to felling trees. Yes, really. Arborists need a Certificate III in Arboriculture, minimum, to work. Arborists that work for the Brisbane City Council have a diploma.

The tree lopping process starts with the team assessing the work site. Are the trees in a confined space? Are they strong enough to climb? After the initial inspection, a quote is issued to the client. Once they accept, the work begins.

 

More clearing, less risk

Queensland storms are the stuff of nightmares. Heavy rainfall and strong winds are bad enough. But fragile trees add to the problem. You’ve most likely seen the Energex ads warning against fallen power lines, especially if they’re mixed up in tree branches. The foliage makes it a deadly problem because they make the wires  hard to see.

Tree lopping as a preventative measure will save your house as well. We’ve all seen the reports at newstime with images of fallen trees flashing across the screen. Often the winds were strong enough to blow them over…right on top of someone’s house.

These are some of the reasons why tree lopping is a good preventative measure. Insurance claims after a natural disaster are a source of anxiety and other sorts of discontent, especially when the provider drags their feet. You’re guaranteeing your family and your home’s safety when the tree lopping is complete

Interesting things you can do with tree lopping leftovers

Tree lopping removes the trees, shrubs, and stumps that are in the way of creating your ideal space. But did you know you can actually do some interesting things with the leftovers? Tall trees are an abundant source of raw, natural materials that have benefits for your home and your wallet.

 

Make something pretty

Do you have a side hustle, like creating homemade goods? The tree lopping will give you an abundance of material to use for new products like these 20 ideas..

Arborists use chainsaws to fell the trees and divide them into manageable parts. You can take the remnants of the tree (so long as it’s not diseased), cut it up as you desire and create something beautiful out of it.

Natural elements, especially wood, are in high demand as home furnishings. There’s dozens of possible items you can create, including:

  • Cutting/serving boards
  • Puzzles and Jenga
  • Figurines
  • Candle holders
  • Coasters
  • Wall art (natural wood canvas)

Mulch

Why waste when you have the possibility of recycling. The tree lopping specialist hauls away the refuse that can be turned into mulch. Natural wood chip mulch is a good ground covering to insulate the ground and prevent weed growth.

 

Loose parts play

Children will have just as much fun playing with the leftovers as adults. Preschools and daycares make use of tree branches, wooden planks, PVC pipes, and metal rods in loose parts play. This encourages kids to use their imagination, mathematical and problem solving skills.

Tree lopping leftovers are much more useful than people realise. They can help you turn a profit, give your kids something to play with, or be of use in your garden.

3 reasons why you absolutely need tree removal services during your renovation

Tree removal services probably aren’t on your mind when you plan your renovation. There’s more concern over paint colours and what type of lounge suite to buy. But this underrated service is absolutely necessary when you want a spectacular end result.

 

 

  • They take up space

Old trees and ugly stumps are using up valuable square meters. This is especially true if they’re in the middle of the backyard. That space is better used as lawn for the kids to play on, or a deck/outdoor living area.

 

When you’re tackling a renovation, you might try and do most of the work yourself to save money. Tree removal though, is a task better left to the professionals. Services like ours have specialist equipment and trained arborists that don’t just guarantee safe removal. It’ll get completed in less time compared to you doing it alone.

 

 

  • It doesn’t fit your overall look

Say, for example, the landscape you have in mind is a Japanese garden, complete with an in-ground pond and a bridge. A big Aussie gumtree doesn’t exactly fit in with that aesthetic.

No room for stumps here!

 

Before anything gets cut down, the arborist will come and assess the condition of the tree. After a general inspection, the TPS tree removal services tackles the task bit by bit (or branch by branch) until everything is removed. Getting rid of the stump as well is recommended.

 

 

  • You’re removing a hazard

When a tree’s branches grow close to power lines, it’s a hazard. The same when there’s dead branches and hollow trunks. You’ll need the help of professional tree removal services like us to nip the danger in the bud before any real damage can happen. One strong wind or  nasty storm is enough to cause serious headaches.

5 reasons to order stump removal ASAP

Stump removal is an underrated yet essential service that property owners should utilise more often. After the tree is cut down, most won’t think about what’s left behind. But ordering stump removal sooner rather than later will save you a lot of headaches down the road.

 

They sprout
The stump might not grow but the areas at the base will. It’s like a phoenix rising from the ashes.

This new growth will only go out and up. It’ll take up more space in your yard compared to the original tree. You ordered the tree to get cut down for space to begin with, not to let it re-grow bigger and bushier.

 

Tree stumps are ugly
Sad but true. A tree stump isn’t a nice backyard feature. Tree stumps are often left alone on council land and occasionally make a nice seat or picnic table. But they’re most often in wide open spaces, not a finite amount of back/front yard.

Ugly, unsightly stumps have no room during a renovation so make arrangements for stump removal during the landscaping phase. This brings us to the next point;

 

You need space
People renovate because they want more space in their home and yards. Your kids can’t kick the footy around a stump.

Stump removal is a process, but a necessary one to take if you want more square meters out of your lawn. The space you gain means you can put in the pool/barbecue/man cave of your dreams.

The decay
If you don’t order stump removal within a year or two, it’ll begin to decay. And decay attracts all sorts of nasties. First off, decay from a tree stump really smells thanks to all the natural rotting material. Next come the termites and beetles. After they’ve finished eating the tree, they’ll move onto their next home or main course: your house.

 

The dangers
Stump removal nips these hazards before any real accidents happen. Children in particular are at risk when they’re running around. They can trip over a root and hurt themselves, for one. And for adults mowing the lawn, they aboveground roots that can children trip over can also ruin your lawn mower blades.
