This method is most commonly used to let more light or wind pass through the tree. Crown thinning is the careful pruning of a percentage of the smaller branches from the outer crown. We don’t reduce the height of the tree but instead trim from all around the crown. It is important to retain the natural shape of the crown and to remove no more than 1/4 of it.
Crown Reduction or Shaping
This involves reducing the size of the crown whilst maintaining its natural form we also shape the tree to improve its aesthetic appeal. The service is useful for balancing a tree and reducing stress on single branches or the entire tree. It is important to maintain enough of the larger branches to create a structure that can support enough small branches and foliage. We often undertake crown reductions to make sure that trees don’t interfere with telephone or power lines.
Crown Lift or Raising
Perfect if you need to improve access around a tree or wish to improve visibility past it. During a crown lift we will remove the lowest branches of the tree. If possible we try to remove smaller branches as this lessens the stress on the tree. A trees crown should only be raised up to the point where the crown is 2/3 the height of the tree.
Dead branches become brittle, making them a potential hazard. Not only can the dead branches of a tree break off and harm people or damaging property, they can be harmful to the health of the tree. It is necessary to remove these branches in order to reduce the risk of these disasters occurring. Sometimes these circumstances come about due to disease or pests. Sometimes previous pruning has caused irreparable damage to branches warranting the removal of dead or dying wood.
