What do pruning services include?

An experienced pruning specialist can handle cutting your trees, shrubs, hedges, and other plants. Pruning (or cutting away dead or overgrown branches and stems) improves a plant’s health and appearance. 

If it’s your first time getting a Tasker to prune your plants, here’s a rundown of what they may do when they get to work on your garden: 

Removing debris and old growth 

The Tasker will usually check the plant for dead wood or flowers and remove those bits. They’ll keep the young growth intact. They may also remove old branches if there are new ones below them. 


Afterward, a Tasker can take away your pile of garden waste and dispose of it properly. Do you suddenly need a tool that neither you nor your Tasker has? In which case, you can book delivery service to get that set of secateurs or long-reach pruners for your last-minute gardening needs. 

Deciding on a shape for the plants 

The Tasker will typically assess if a plant needs to be pruned to a certain shape (if the plant is new), or if they need to trim it back to follow a certain look. For example, pyramid shapes allow for plenty of light, great for apple and pear trees. 


You can also discuss how you’d like your shrubs or trees to look with your Tasker! Your specialist will then try to achieve your vision for your garden or yard.    

Pruning the plants 

When pruning plants and trees, the Tasker needs to make good, clean cuts that finish at a point of growth. They’ll get rid of unproductive wood and make sure to encourage the growth of new shoots that will result in lots of fruits and flowers. 


The pruning process may vary depending on the type of plant: 

  • Plants may be pruned back by around 1/3 of their current growth. If it’s a flowering plant, the specialist may cut back the dead flower stems and stem tops. 

  • For hedges, the Tasker will typically follow your desired shape (e.g., a ball). Or, they may trim the sides of a hedge first, pruning the top last. The lowest parts of a hedge should be wider than the top. This structure lets the lower part of the plant get enough sunlight. 

  • As for trees, the pruning specialist may ensure the tree keeps growing laterally instead of upwards. For more complex tree trimming services, consider hiring a tree surgeon.  


Speaking of trimming back overgrown plants, did you know you can also book a lawn mowing service through Airtasker? Simply select the “Post a task” button to schedule an appointment!

Weeding and pruning/tree trim


Maroochydore QLD, Australia

29th Apr 2022

I need someone with a couple of spare hours and some trimming equipment please to trim down three lilly pilly hedges/trees, weed garden beds and take away the clippings/green waste. No lawn mowing or edging- it’s just cleaning up the gardens and trimming down the trees so they are manageable and the gardens ready for mulching (you don’t need to do the mulching). I want the three lilly pilly trees seen in the photos cut off to just above the fence level and then just trimmed square so they are neat, and the weeds in the gardens and sand area removed. The weeds are in garden beds and pull out easily and there are very few plants to work around, just some pots. The lilly pillys have been well-maintained and are easily cut, but I want them trimmed down to make them more manageable. I’ve offered my house and garden for a memorial for a family loved one and have run out of time to get it looking nice. Need done by May 12 at the latest please.

Paul did a fantastic job, and even came in the rain! The gardens and trees trimmed look great and Paul took care of the clean up. Thanks so much.
