Programmed bush cutting is undertaken during the dormant winter months.
Reactive tree cutting work is sometimes required at other times of the growing season, when bushes or trees in full canopy become storm damaged and fall across rivers and water channels impeding or blocking statutory navigation and water flows.
Pollarding of trees is often undertaken. This reduces the tree canopy which in turn initiates new growth in mature trees during the following season. This can also extend a mature trees life span significantly.
