Tree Lopping & Pruning Northern Suburbs Melbourne

We’ve been trimming with precision and shaping with care for over 30 years.


Does Your Tree Need Sprucing Up?

A tall and stately tree in your garden is often the focal point that captivates people. Standing proudly and towering over its surroundings, you may have even designed your garden around it! Over the years it offered shade on hot days when the kids wanted to play outside, and provided shelter as you brought your groceries inside during a sudden downpour.

But over time, nature has taken its course and your tree is now more of a hindrance than a help. Today it obstructs your view of the park across the road, teeters towards power lines, or has become damaged and poses a risk to yourself and others. If any of those situations sound familiar, it’s time for tree lopping and pruning to return your tree to its status as the jewel of your garden.

The Benefits Of Tree Lopping And Pruning

Tree lopping or pruning may be just what your tree— and your garden— needs.


Branches that grow heavy over time can cause a tree to become top-heavy and more likely to fall over, so pruning it back makes it much safer.


Trees that have been pruned sprout leafier branches down low, so you can notice the foliage more (and use them for shade to sit under on a hot day).

Tree Health

Tree lopping and pruning promotes tree health by removing dead or diseased branches, improving airflow and light penetration, and reducing the risk of pests making your tree their home.

Roof Maintenance

Tree lopping and pruning helps to stop gutters filling with leaves, which prevents possums and other creatures accessing your roof.


Your Tree Lopping And Pruning Questions Answered

Determining whether your tree needs pruning or lopping depends on the specific circumstances. Pruning is typically done to enhance tree health, shape, and aesthetics, while lopping is considered when there are safety concerns or clearance issues. Consulting with a qualified arborist such as our experienced team at Oz Tree Services can help. We can assess your tree’s condition, growth patterns, and objectives will help determine the most appropriate approach for your tree’s specific needs.

Tree trimming, pruning, and lopping are different methods of tree care. Tree trimming generally refers to the removal of overgrown or unwanted branches for aesthetic purposes. Pruning involves selectively removing specific branches to improve tree health, structure, and appearance. Tree lopping, on the other hand, often involves more drastic cutting, such as removing large sections or the entire top portion of a tree. Lopping is typically done for safety reasons or to address clearance issues.

The frequency of pruning depends on several factors, including the tree species, age, health, growth rate, and desired outcome. In general, most trees benefit from regular pruning every 3 to 5 years to maintain their health, shape, and structural integrity. However, some fast-growing or fruit-bearing trees may require more frequent attention, while slower-growing trees may need pruning less often. Consulting with a professional arborist, such as our team at Oz Tree Services, is recommended to assess your specific trees and provide guidance on the appropriate maintenance schedule for optimal growth and maintenance.

Pruning trees yourself can be possible for small, low-risk jobs such as removing small branches or deadwood. However, for larger trees, high branches, or complex tasks, it is strongly recommended to hire a professional arborist. Tree pruning requires knowledge of proper techniques, equipment, safety precautions, and an understanding of the tree’s biology. Improper pruning can lead to tree stress, damage, and even potential hazards. Arborists have the expertise to assess tree health, make accurate cuts, and ensure the long-term well-being of the tree.
