In general, pruning ornamental pear trees can be done at any time of year with very little harm to the tree.
However the best time of year to prune ornamental pear trees is during mid to late winter when the tree is dormant. Ornamental pears are deciduous trees (those that loose their leaves during winter).
The advantages of pruning ornamental pears in winter:
1. Having no leaves on a tree allows better access for an arborist to view the structure of a tree, spot problematic branches and make quality pruning cuts in order to promote good structure.
2. Trees that are dormant have stored carbohydrates in the trunk and root system. Pruning in winter is ideal because in spring all the trees stored carbohydrates go directly into the desired structural branches rather than problematic branches.
3. No leaves means less mess. This allows tree companies to complete a job quicker with less green waste to dispose of resulting in a lower cost for the customer.

Hi folks, from time to time I get calls from people wanting to know how much it will cost to get one of their trees removed, while it is difficult to give an indication of price without seeing the tree in person, an accurate estimate can be given having looked at half a dozen or more photos of the tree in question.
Are you looking for an indication as to what your tree will cost to remove? Send 6 + photos of your tree(s) from different angles and distances and text them through to 0478 896 636 with your suburb and the heading 'FREE ESTIMATE' for an obligation free estimate in 15 minutes!
Thank you to all who participated in our recent Facebook competition, I am overwhelmed with the feedback we have been receiving with people commenting what they like about our products and how different they are to anything they've seen before. I personally read all of these and value each and everyone's input into why they support us and the vision we're trying to achieve.
I am proud to giveaway the 3 Oak Cheese Platters to Mark Bruce, Leisa Barber and Liz Smart, we hope you enjoy these as much as we like making them. Thank you to everyone else who participated in the competition, it wood (see what I did there) be great to see you next time! Stay tuned for more in the future
Check out a recent job we did where we removed a Gum tree in a confined space and salvaged the lumber, to later be made into planter boxes and gifted back to the customer.
The timber will take between 9 to 12 months to reach a moisture content reading stable enough to be made into furniture and craft items,. The yield on this log wasn't so great, but hey we'll be able to make at least 600 cheese platers out of it ;)
This video demonstrates the process of upcycling a standing tree to a planter box, from start to finish. We thought this would be a great opportunity to salvage as much timber as practically possible rather than see it go to waste, stay tuned for more upcycling ideas and initiatives, more coming!
The Lemon Scented Gum Tree was located in Blackburn South, Victoria and had to be removed because it was doing structural damage to walls and foundations of the house.
It wood (see what I did there) take a whole day to cut up and feed through a chipper, yet only half a day to process into boards that will be able to make up to 1600 cheese platters (or over 100 coffee tables) that can be sold in the local area. It disappoints me that there is only a handful of us doing it in the country.
I don't know about you but I think the industry is ripe for disruption #recycled #innovation #thesystemisbackwards #fuckthestatusquo #treebiz#upcycled
Research suggests that 52% of Australians grow a portion of their own food, and reflecting on Woolworth's marketing campaign to promote Michelle Bridges frozen food selection, I think it's great that they've released this ad as it will expose the frauds that they really are. Woolies - The 'Fresh Food People' what an absolute joke.
I get that there is a big market for incredibly time-poor consumers who want to buy more convenient meals to fit in with their busy schedules, I'm not against that. But for Woolies and Michelle Bridges to label home growers as 'freaks' in an attempt to increase sales? That's just blatantly offensive. How stupid do they think people are? This is almost as bad as that show where they abuse over-weight individuals and scream at them until they injure themselves.
What a disgusting attempt from Woolies to highjack "health eating" and sell your preprepared, chemically preserved, microwaved commercially lucrative product as an option to the goodness of homegrown vegetables.
Gotta run folks, off to the local farmers' market
You might just be eligible for a significant discount, depending on the size and species of the tree you have.
Unfortunately (I say unfortunately because more tree companies need to be doing this) we are the only tree company in Melbourne that makes furniture using the wood salvaged from job sites and supplies local furniture manufacturers and builders.
There is a supplies shortage of exotic timbers in Melbourne and for the last few months we've had a lot of requests for various sized boards/planks/posts/slabs that might just happen to be in the tree you're looking to remove. Given the increase in demand, we are happy to reduce our tree removal prices on particular species such as Oak (English, Algerian, Dutch, She, Silky and Pin Oak), Lemon Scented Gum, Jarrah, Salmon Gum, Iron Bark, Elm, Blackwood, fruit trees, Liquidambar, Birch, Beech, Ash, Acer negundo, Cedar, Cypress and Radiata Pine.
Typically how we go about doing this is to dismantle the tree, remove the foliage and use a crane truck to pick up the log and bring it back to our yard to be processed using our sawmill. If you have a tree in mind that is hard to access, don't stress! We have a portable mill (Lucas Mill) that is easily transportable and can be setup in most back yards to get the maximum yield from the log.
We offer discounts on small trees as well (it's still practical for us to mill some logs as small as 1ft in diameter), and in some cases we have been able to save homeowners up to 60% on the cost of removing trees because we can on sell the lumber.
