When you hire a tree lopper to take care of your outdoor space, they will often use a pole pruner to trim large trees and branches. This may be done in preparation for felling the tree itself, or to simply cut down obstructive branches.
Pole pruners are effective tools for tree loppers, but they also require maintenance at some point in time. Your tree lopper may need to replace the threading on their pruner to keep it effective on your vegetation.
If you're thinking about cutting down one of the trees in your garden, you should consult an arborist before you take out the chainsaw. Read on to find out why.
You could end up incurring a hefty fine if you accidentally cut down a native tree
In some states, there are very strict rules regarding the removal of native trees. In these states, members of the public are not usually allowed to cut down native trees (even if these trees are located on their private properties) without first seeking and obtaining the permission of their local council.
