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.

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.

According to the Herald Sun newspaper, from 2009 to 2012 the Victoria Dispute Settlement Centre took 53,000 calls primarily concerning disputes between neighbours over bad behaviour, fence issues and trees.

It's never recommended that homeowners try to handle their own tree lopping or removal, as trying to prune and dig up even small trees can be very dangerous for you and for your property. Branches can bounce in any direction and land where you least expect them, and they can also slide or snap backwards and cause you physical harm.
