How to Care For Your Trees

Hello, my name is Roger and this is my new tree service blog. I am lucky enough to live out in the Australian Bush which means that I have plenty of room for growing fruit trees. There is nothing better than tasting an apple which you have grown yourself. However, fruit trees also require a lot of love and care. I am not an expert gardener and so when I moved into this place, I really didn't have a clue how to manage an orchard. Thankfully, the local tree service have really helped me out and taught me some cool things about tree care.

When Your Tree Troubles the Neighbours: What to do if Your Tree Invades a Neighbour’s Property

A well-placed tree can benefit both you and your neighbour, bestowing shade, beauty and privacy upon both your properties.

Tree lopping that's done to keep trees healthy is also more technical than you may realize, as cutting the branches the wrong way or cutting off too many branches can actually do more harm than good.
