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
- Candle holders
- Wall art (natural wood canvas)
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.
