Crown Reduction, Thinning & Lifting

Crown reduction, thinning & lifting are all methods of reducing the overall size of a tree to aid healthy growth & longevity.

Crown Reduction

Crown reduction is the process of reducing the size of the tree’s overall canopy.

Crown Thinning

Crown thinning is the process of removing inner limbs or branches throughout the crown of the tree to enable more light to filter through. This method will leave the tree’s natural shape intact. Should there be any deadwood, this will be removed during this process.

Crown Lifting

Crown lifting is the process of removing the tree’s lower limbs to raise the height of the crown from the ground. This can be done for many reasons, though typically this is carried out to allow pedestrians and vehicles to pass underneath the tree without harm or to allow more light to pass under the canopy.
