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.

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.
