What is Crown Thinning?
Crown thinning leaves the overall size of the tree as it is, focusing more on selected branches within the crown. These branches are often those that are either dead, crossing another branch or growing into the canopy with no future. Crown thinning reduces the risk of failure in heavy winds and also creates an evenly balanced crown.

Improve Tree Health With a Crown Reduction
Tree crown thinning not only helps to improve the look of your tree but can also help in a number of other ways. Crown thinning and pruning your tree will allow sunlight to reach the middle of the canopy, which in turn helps to encourage new growth of leaves and branches. Removing dead branches can also reduce the risk of danger via falling branches in areas of high footfall, or if your tree overhangs a property. If you are looking to reduce the tree’s shape and overall volume, you may prefer our full crown reduction service.
