GOLD COAST TREE PRUNING
At Frontier Tree Services all Gold Coast tree pruning work is carried out to Australian Standard AS4373: 1996 Pruning of Amenity Trees, and in accordance to local council & Queensland Arboriculture Association guidelines. Our pruning techniques aim to eliminate hazardous branches, reduce wind resistance and increase the health and longevity of your trees.
Formative Pruning in young trees is important to help prevent any major weak unions or crossing branches as the tree grows. Preventative measures like this can reduce storm damage and help ensure the longevity of your trees. With correct formative pruning, mature trees should be free from major physical weakness and can be enjoyed for years to come.

Crown thinning is a gold coast tree pruning technique used to leave you with an open, well-balanced tree canopy. Firstly all damaged, dead, crossing and weak branches are removed, followed by any smaller live branches as necessary. This will help reduce wind loading on the tree and increase natural light below the tree.
Crown lifting raises the canopy of a tree by removing the lower branches. This is usually done to create greater clearance over walkways, paths and roads.
This gold coast pruning technique is the reduction of the canopy by a maximum of 15-20% and can either be to reduce the tree back from a building or simply to reduce its size. This should be done in a way in which the branch removed is reduced back to at least 1/3 of the diameter to allow it to ‘take over’ the terminal role. This should leave the tree looking as natural as possible. Not to be confused with tree lopping!
REMEDIAL / RESTORATION PRUNING
Remedial pruning is designed to reduce the risk of falling branches by improving the tree’s form. This includes the removal of dead, damaged, decayed, diseased and or dangerous branches and unwanted epicormic shoots
HOW TO PREPARE YOUR TREES FOR STORM SEASON
Frontier Tree Services’ qualified arborists provide a free tree hazard inspection on the Gold Coast which can help identify potentially dangerous trees, branches or limbs with weaknesses. A free ‘walkover inspection’ by one of our Arborists is the first step to protect your trees, property, and more importantly, your family during adverse weather conditions. Storms like the ones that struck Brisbane in November 2008 and the Gold Coast in May 2009 can cause major damage. Many of the trees that failed and damaged property had underlying issues. With regular inspections, these issues can be identified and managed to reduce the risks. Prevention is always better than cure Frontier Tree Services loves trees too and we can often recommend different ways to maintain trees without destroying their beauty.

I was very impressed with the work you did at our place. Not only did you actually turned up when you said you would (which is sadly unheard of these days). You were all so friendly and efficient. You removed those large palms within no time, and left no mess, very organised. I would highly recommend you to anyone needing this done. You were very fair with the quote compared to others. Thank you once again. K & B Fish, Helensvale (Dec 2019)
Diseased gum tree done and very large leopard. Just like to say Frontier Tree Services are fantastic. I cannot speak highly enough of them. Reliable, professional, courteous, reasonable prices and they did such a wonderful job and cleaned up after. Even replaced the dog water as it had some leaves in it. Thanks you Frontier Tree Services. H Burton, Nerang (Dec 2019)
