With proper maintenance, trees are attractive and can add considerable value to your property. Poorly maintained trees, on the other hand, can be a significant liability. Pruning or removing trees, especially large trees, can be dangerous work. It should be performed only by those trained and equipped to work safely in trees.

PRUNING: There are two types of tree pruning: Crown Maintenance and Crown modification. Specific types of pruning may be necessary to maintain a mature tree in a healthy, safe, and attractive condition.

  • Crown Maintenance includes Deadwooding, Crown Thinning, Selective Pruning, Formative Pruning, Cleaning
  • Crown Modification includes Reduction Pruning, Crown Lifting, Pollarding, Remedial (corrective) Pruning and Line Clearance.
Cleaning is the removal of dead, dying, diseased, crowded, weakly attached, and low-vigor branches from the crown of a tree.

Thinning is the selective removal of branches to increase light penetration and air movement through the crown. Thinning opens the foliage of a tree, reduces weight on heavy limbs, and helps retain the tree's natural shape.

Raising removes the lower branches from a tree in order to provide clearance for buildings, vehicles, pedestrians, and vistas.

Reduction reduces the size of a tree, often for clearance of utility lines. Reducing the height or spread of a tree is best accomplished by pruning back the leaders and branch terminals to lateral branches that are large enough to assume the terminal roles (at least one-third the diameter of the cut stem). Compared to topping, reduction helps maintain the form and structural integrity of the tree.

REMOVAL: Although tree removal is a last resort, there are circumstances when it is necessary. An arborist can help decide whether or not a tree should be removed. Professionally trained arborists have the skills and equipment to safely and efficiently remove trees. Removal is recommended when a tree:

  • is dead, dying, or considered irreparably hazardous
  • is causing an obstruction or is crowding and causing harm to other trees and the situation is impossible to correct through pruning
  • is to be replaced by a more suitable specimen
  • should be removed to allow for construction

PALM PRUNING:

Removal of old fronds and fruit. Avoiding the removal of healthy fronds is essential as it may place the palm under stress and encourage more vigorous growth.

GENERAL TIDY: Deadwood/stubs removal, reduction/removal of diseased, dying, deformed branches. Aces Tree and Garden Service prefers to perform a routine General Tidy with all forms of pruning.


LOPPING: The Australian Standard defines Lopping and Topping, Wound Painting and Flush Cutting as unacceptable practices. Please see our section on PRUNING for information on best practice.


MULCH and MULCH SALES: We offer three types of mulch delivery, all 5 cubic metres.

  • 1: Free Mixed mulch. May contain palm and low grade materials. Only as available and only to clients.
  • 2: Exotic mulch. Mixed medium grade materials. $55: 5 cubic metres.
  • 3: Native mulch. Straight Eucalyptus or similar high grade materials only. $165: 5 cubic metres.

Mulch is a very important part of garden and landscape care. It protects the soil bed from excessive evaporation by offering shade to the soil, is a weed suppressant, allows air and water to penetrate, and eventually decomposes to add valuable organic material to your garden.
