Lifting the canopy
Lifting The Canopy - Removing low branches to make way for buildings or walkways. Also a easy way of keeping trees off roofs and also allows for easy mowing under and around trees.
Thinning the canopy
Removing selected interior branches we can reduce the density of the tree which allows more light to come through while still retaining the overall shape and form of the tree.
Some large limbs are subject to snapping – by removing selected smaller branches from these limbs, we can greatly increase the safety of your tree.
If a tree is too big for its area, we can safely reduce the height and width while keeping its overall shape and form, through target pruning and reduction cuts.

At Tree Menders, we offer transplanting services which come in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes things change - you move houses, you want to build a new building. That's when transplanting might be right for you.
We can move a tree to a new location. Depending on the size and access this process can be a large operation with big machinery. Sometimes it requires a lot of prep work to help aid in the longevity of the tree after transplanting and relocating. Talk to us today and we can look at what might work for your trees.
What are the steps in transplanting?
Below we have outlined the steps taken to transplant a tree. Please note that some trees transplant more easily than others and there are better times of the year to move trees.

Prior to any digging the tree can be pruned. Depending on the time frame for the move, this can be done multiple times over subsequent years. This pruning process helps to reduce its size and aid in preparing it for the move. A large tree has large amounts of roots, reducing the size reduces the need for as many roots.
Depending on the size of the tree, a large amount of soil and subsequently roots will need to be retained as the 'Root ball'. This can be a time consuming process. The more soil that is retained the more likely the tree will survive the relocation.
The root ball will be wrapped in a sack, this is to prevent soil loss in transportation. This process also aids in the lifting process as the lifting is not likely to damage the trees branches or trunk.
Depending on the trees size this may require large machinery. Excavators, Hiabs or Cranes may need to be used. The tree will be moved to its new location where it will be lifted back into a new location. Ensuring that the rootball remains intact is still very important.
The tree needs to be watered and remain watered especially during the hot parts of the year, this is to ensure it can re establish itself and continue to grow in its new location. This process is important and is ultimately the most important.
