Darra Pencil Pines Removal
Darra is a very old suburb and thus still boasts many large properties though there is a trend these days to subdivide.
Big industry has a large presents in Darra along with its surrounding suburbs. Halina our most recent happy customer chose TreeloppingPros to remove her 2 tall Pencil Pines along her boundary.
The Pines kept her tossing and turning at night in extreme weather as she feared nature would do her worst, and bring them down on her neighbour’s garage or her own home.
Fears that where not entirely without foundation here in Queensland where severe thunderstorms can wreak tremendous damage in an instant.
How it Should Have Been Controlled
After an external examining the trees on the initial visit it was discovered each Pencil Pine consisted of multiple trunks that was the result of secondary hedge like regrowth from a savage lopping many years back.
The right way to control the growth of a Pine tree is to cut about 10” off the central leader right at the very tip of its height.
Unfortunately the lopping done many years earlier was an abomination, lopping the Pine about 2m from the ground.
The bushy regrowth that follows takes away from its characteristic shape and form.
The Removal Begins With Challenges
On the day of the removal a further inspection was conducted. Spreading the branches apart to peer into the Pine revealed a somewhat hollow centre that was dense with hung up clumps of dead foliage.
The dead foliage was so dense it was deemed too much of an impediment to a climber as he would get a surprise dump of this nasty stuff with each few cuts ascending the tree.
