Crown work consists of selective removal of dead, dying, diseased and weak branches from a tree's crown. As a tree grows, defective branches are found in the tree's crown from time to time.
It is common to have a large amount of small dead twigs that a tree may shed. Although this is not a major concern it can become hazardous either being shed by the tree or in strong winds. Our Crown Work Cleaning service will remove these twigs and crossover branches.
Our Crown thinning technique is essentially a pruning service for Hardwood Trees. This helps to improve your tree's structure and form while making life uncomfortable for tree pests.
With our Crown Lifting service, we remove the lowest branches of your tree. We also prepare the lower branches for future removal, normally to give a uniform height from ground level. This helps the long term future of your tree as large branches growing directly from the trunk cause large wounds. If your tree blocks access to traffic or your tree just blocks light for you, this is an important service. In the U.K. common practice dictates clearance for vehicles is 5.2 metres (17 feet) and for pedestrians 2.5m (8 feet).
