Deadwooding (the essential part of a tree's health) is the removal of branches to a specified diameter and location.
Reasons for deadwooding include:
- Hazardous to people and property
- Tree owners duty of care
- Limit diseases
- Enhance the beauty of the tree
- Possible food source for dangerous pests
D & C Tree Services team of highly-skilled and trained arborists are capable of providing you with accurate advice on how your tree will respond to best practice deadwood removal including consideration of habitat value.
The removal of deadwood reduces possible food sources for dangerous pests, can limit diseases and also enhance the beauty of the tree itself. Importantly, it also addresses a tree owner's legal responsibility relative to "reasonable duty of care" as deadwood can become a hazard for people and property particularly in storms.
All deadwood pruning is undertaken in compliance with the Australian Standard (AS4373- 2007) for the pruning of amenity trees. No council approval is needed for the removal of deadwood.
