Tips for Vegetable Management & Tree Lopping in Cairns by December

Before summer is the preferred time to do vegetation management such as tree lopping in Cairns. This is because summer (December - February) is monsoon season when rains and cyclones come. The Cairns Regional Council says it best: Vegetation management on your property is a year-round task. Do not leave this to the last month before the wet season or the day before the cyclone arrives. Most trees in the tropics can be pruned at any time of the year because they grow all year around. It is much better for the tree to prune it during the year and to allow it respond with new growth prior to the cyclone season, than to repair or remove a cyclone-damaged tree. Look for signs of trunk damage, wood rot, termites and dieback in the branches. Seek advice from an arborist. If December comes and one cannot squib out of managing the trees or vegetation by that time, then some tips below should help ease the job.
