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.
Tree crown trimming is the selective removal of branches from a tree. It is an important arboricultural practice that is used to maintain the health and vitality of trees, improve their appearance, and increase their safety. Proper tree crown trimming helps to prevent storm damage, reduces the dangers of tree failure, and improves the overall appearance of the tree.
Benefits of tree crown trimming
Trees add to the aesthetics of a home or business, provide shade and cooler temperatures in the summer, and offer a place for birds and other wildlife to live. Proper tree crown trimming can help your trees stay healthy and look good.
Tree crown trimming, also known as pruning, is the selective removal of branches from a tree. It is an important part of tree care and should be done by a qualified arborist. There are many benefits of tree crown trimming:
– It helps keep trees healthy by removing dead or diseased branches.
– It improves the tree’s structure by removing crossing or rubbing branches.
– It opens the tree’s canopy, which allows more sunlight to penetrate the canopy resulting in equal growth.
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).
