Crown Thinning

Examplehover mouse over tree

Crown thinning is the removal of selected internal branches throughout the tree to reduce density in the crown and produce a uniform appearance. We will recommend a percentage of the crown for removal so as to retain as much of the trees’ natural shape as possible.

Why have this done?

This procedure opens up the foliage of the tree, increasing light penetration and reducing the weight on heavy limbs which could become dangerous. Overall crown thinning will improve the trees’ structure, as well as prohibiting unwanted pests.
