Tips and guides to help you find the right tree lopping

Here's some tips and guides on how to find the right tree lopping for your job

1. What is tree lopping?

Tree lopping is an antiquated method of tree pruning. In most cases, tree lopping is completed for safety reasons. Tree lopping involves chopping off branches and stubs of trees that pose safety hazards to households or the public. Another reason for tree lopping is to provide aesthetics or promote new tree shoots to grow.

The process of tree lopping eliminates all the tree leaves, which makes the tree open to receive sunlight. Lopping of trees also leaves wounds allowing space for pests and fungi to get into the tree, slowly rotting the tree inside out.


2. What should I look for when hiring a tree lopping service?

When looking for a tree lopping service, it is best to check several factors to find the right tree lopping contractor before starting your project. These factors include:

  • Workers compensation insurance
  • Public liability insurance
  • Certificate II in Horticulture for ground and climbing work
  • Certificate III in Horticulture for supervising work

When hiring a tree lopper from iSeekplant, you can expect to find well-established professionals in your area who can provide you with references.
