Tree Pruning

Crown lifting – is the removal of lower branches to an agreed height for example over footpaths or roads by pruning to an upward growing part of the branch or back to the main stem. Used where low branches are causing an obstruction or encroaching on buildings.
Crown thinning – the aim of crown thinning is to reduce crown density without altering the overall size or shape of the tree. This work will reduce weight on branches and cut down on wind resistance, thereby reducing the potential for storm damage.
Crown reduction and reshaping – the aim is to make the crown of the tree smaller without unduly spoiling the shape of the tree. The greater the amount removed, the more difficult it is to retain the natural shape.
Crown Cleaning – this is the removal of dead, broken, and crossing limbs, sucker sprouts on trunks, and weak or diseased limbs. We will specify the size of dead limbs to remove; usually 25mm diameter and larger. The purpose of the crown clean is to improve structure, appearance, and health. The outside appearance of the canopy will be affected very little.
