Storm Season

Storm season.

Trees can cause devastating damage to homes, cars and businesses. Have the trees around your home or work place quoted on today.Strong winds and heavy rainfall will cause extensive damage to many homes this storm season.

It may not be a case of necessarily removing the entire tree, but often just a couple of branches. If a tree has been incorrectly pruned in the past, the tree will fail at the weak point of regrowth (epicormic growth). In this situation, eucalyptus trees (gum trees) are commonly known for dropping large heavy branches often causing damage or devastation to property and people alike.

Epicormic growth occurs when trees have been incorrectly pruned in their lives. When branches shoot naturally the fibres of wood are knitted into the trunk ensuring they hang on in strong winds. Incorrect pruning of Eucalyptus Trees in particular is dangerous, especially in wind and storm season.. Storm season puts more pressure on heavy limbs which have regrown and are now only holding on to the tree by their bark layer. ( This is Epicormic Growth).

It is important to also note that it doesn’t require a storm to bring down these heavy limbs. At times causing expensive damage to property. Human life is also very much at risk especially in storm season. If in doubt about your trees, we are only too happy to come and do an appraisal at your home or office to ensure you are safe this storm season.

If you have a neighbor or friend with gum trees in particular, you may want to pass this information on as many people get caught out as they are unaware.

The best way to ensure that your home, cars and family are kept safe from trees this storm season is to call All Australian Tree Palm And Garden Services for an obligation free quote today.

        African Tulip Tree and Native Bees.

Native Bees are a vital part of our Eco-system. Their numbers are declining rapidly.The African Tulip Tree, flowering here, is largely to blame. We can help.The unfortunate problem is that during the process of pollination the bees seem to be killed by a toxin in the pollen. At All Australian Tree Palm And Garden, we are only too happy to  come and quote on the removal of these trees.

This African Tulip Tree ( Spathodea Campanulata ), look beautiful when in full bloom, however the pollen is toxic to our native bees, killing them as they try to pollinate. As our bee stocks are under threat, these trees should be removed. Should you, or someone you know have one of these trees, call us for a free quote to remove it. Kind Regards , Nathan and Steve .

What are Native Bees?x


There are over 1,500 species of “true blue” Australian native bees (see photos of some common examples below).

Commercial honey bees (Apis mellifera) are not native to Australia. They were introduced from Europe in about 1822.

They can be black, yellow, red, metallic green or even black with blue polka dots! They can be fat and furry, or sleek and shiny.

Australia’s smallest bee is Cape York’s minute Quasihesma bee. It is less than 2 mm long.

Australia’s largest, is the Great Carpenter Bee of the tropical north and northern NSW. It is up to 24 mm long.

Most Australian bees are solitary bees which raise their young in burrows in the ground or in tiny hollows in timber.

Australia also has 10 species of social native bees (genera Tetragonula*and Austroplebeia) which do not sting!

 


Stingless bee honey is a delicious bush food and stingless bees can be good crop pollinators. So stingless beekeeping is becoming increasingly popular.

Native bees are also important pollinators of Australia’s unique wildflowers and are a vital part of our Australian bushland.

This bee is used for honey production and crop pollination throughout Australia. Feral nests of this bee are also found in most areas of Australia.
European bumble bee
European Bumblebee (Bombus)
A feral population of this bee has become established in Tasmania but fortunately it has not spread to the Australian mainland.

The Australian continent has steamy tropical rainforests in the far north, snow capped mountains in the south, and hot dry deserts in the centre. Native bees can be found in most of Australia’s diverse habitats. Multitudes teem through the carpets of flowers in our heathlands and swarm around the blossoms at the tops of gum trees. Some species burrow into the desert sands whilst others nest inside straggly trees near isolated waterholes. Which native bees are found in your area?

Power Lines And Trees, The Very Real Danger!!!

Power Lines

Power Lines And Trees

Power Lines And Trees

The combination of Trees and Power Lines can be deadly if it is not handled correctly.

Just recently, we were asked by a gentleman if it was safe for him to cut a branch with his son which was leaning on a power line from the street to the house. We of course advised him against it and quoted on the job. It only cost him $220, which was a small price to pay he decided and decided to leave it to professionals.We are relieved to say the people in question are happy to leave it to the professionals and have no intention of attempting to do such a dangerous task to save some money.
We were very concerned that some people are so complacent about the danger in working in close proximity to live power. There are always Ads on Television outlining the dangers of working near live power. ( You often see guys in high vis clothing on these Ads sitting in machinery.) This goes to show that even those working near power lines day in, day out get Complacent. Don’t become a statistic.

Now Storm Season is here, live power lines being brought down is a very real possibility. Even if you cannot see any power lines but the tree is in close proximity, always assume they are hidden in among the foliage somewhere and contact All Australian Tree Palm and Garden Services on 0467 544 600. We’ll deal with the power companies and have the situation resolved. Alternatively call 000 and keep everyone away from the tree.

Trees and Power Lines.

Please call us for a quote rather than ever working near live power.
Take care and stay safe this Storm Season and ALWAYS KEEP CLEAR OF FALLEN POWER LINES!!

Nathan and Steve.
