We at River City Trees do not identify with “tree loppers”, regardless of the interchangeable use of the terms ‘tree lopping’ with ‘tree pruning’ or ‘trimming’ by the general public. Rather, we are Arborists, practicing arboriculture. This simply means that we have great respect for the tree care standards set, as we have a desire to protect and care for the trees we work on to ensure they remain in optimal health. Every cut made to a tree is classified as a wound, and if not executed correctly will result in a decline in health for that tree. Tree lopping involves unplanned and unskilled wounds, causing not only a decrease in aesthetic appeal but in the general health of the tree. Because of this care, we enroll our staff into numerous workshops, courses and training sessions so that they can acquire the necessary skills to properly care for each and every tree.
After working in the industry for over 20 years we have seen numerous “tree loppers” in Brisbane provide customers with devastating and detrimental work, therefore we advise the public to work with arborists, as not only will they receive a professional and quality service, they are also dealing with men and women who have an appreciation for the trees in the environment and a depth of knowledge in their care and maintenance.
Is tree lopping the same as tree pruning? Will tree loppers throughout Brisbane provide the same quality of work as arborists? What even are ‘arborists’? Unfortunately, these terms have become interchangeable although there is an importance in knowing the difference between them.
The core difference is identified in the level of skill and care exhibited in the work provided. All over the world and in Brisbane, tree loppers demonstrate unacceptable practice, identified by national associations and amongst qualified arborists. River City Trees abide by national and industry standards and demonstrate a high level of care for both the trees and your property. At River City Trees we go the extra mile, and ensure you have a well maintained tree, left in beautiful condition, without the nagging unsurity of whether you have chosen a tree company who conducts quality and professional work, every time.
