Crown reduction pruning is most often used when a tree has grown too large for its permitted space or to increse light levels into areas the tree is shading.
Crown reduction can also be used to reduce the tree’s wind resistance.
Crown thinning is a pruning technique primarily used on hardwood trees.
Crown thinning is the selective removal of stems and branches to increase light penetration and air movement throughout the crown of a tree.
Crown lifting is the removal of selected branches and limbs from the lower part of the trees crown thus lifting the crowns overall height. Depending on the location of the tree, this process is generally performed to ensure vehicles and people can pass safely underneath avoiding accidents and injury.
This process can also assist in allowing more light to penetrate through the lower crown.
Removal, Section Felling / Tree Felling
Occasionally a tree will need to be removed completely. This can be for a number of reasons.
In the interests of conservation, a diseased tree may have to be removed to ensure neighbouring trees do not also become infected. Other reasons to fell a tree will include safety (to people and property) i.e. if a tree is in a state of decay or in a weakened condition, or if the tree is in an unsuitable area affecting planning applications and construction projects.Felling a large tree in a restricted area will require the tree to be climbed and dismantled or (section felled).Other times when space, safety and the trees form allows, a tree may be felled in the traditional forestry sense of the term, by bringing the tree to ground using practiced methods to ensure a safe, controlled and calculated fell.
As a tree grows it is natural for some branches to die back. It is advisable to have your tree regularly inspected and cleared of any deadwood.
