Tree Loppers vs Arborists

Although tree lopping has been practiced in our industry for many years, there is quite a bit of controversy around tree lopping.

What is tree lopping?

Tree lopping within the industry is a term often used to describe crude. unskilful cutting of trees to reduce the size, meaning that the points of growth from where it is cut are weak and compromised. However, the term tree lopping is used by most of our clients as a way to convey their request to service their trees, without the intention of brutally cutting away a significant amount of foliage which would ultimately destroy the tree.  It is simply a way for regular people to ask for a service from our company. Acclaim Tree Care & Services offer professional advice to achieve the outcome our clients need, without them having to worry about using the right industry terminology.  We meet our clients onsite to discover what problems the tree is causing and offer solutions that comply with Australian Standards for trees. Our friendly team can identify exactly which pruning method is required – such as crown thinning, cleaning, raising or reduction (and more!) – to get more sun on your lawn to grow your grass back, stop branches touching your roof and cutting away branches which drop leaves into your gutters.

What is an arborist?

Arborists specialise in the care of trees and are also known as tree doctors in the professional world, who focus on the diagnosis and treatment of pests, diseases, and nutritional deficiencies. In addition, an arborist can determine the type of pruning necessary to maintain or improve the appearance and safety of trees.  And if you are considering the removal of a tree, an arborist will be able to help you decide if this is necessary. At Acclaim Tree Care & Services, our arborists are able to interpret exactly what methods are required to achieve the result you want – so you can rest assured knowing when you call us for tree lopping… you will get the best service and advice for the safety of your family and the health of your tree.
