Crown lifting is the removal of lower branches and foliage from a tree’s crown to create clearance between the ground and lower branches. This is done to increase visibility, allow more natural light to pass through and to create space beneath the tree. Crown lifting is also implemented to prevent obstruction of pathways, roads & buildings.
Crown thinning is the selective removal of branches in a tree’s crown so that there is an even distribution of branches throughout the canopy. This method is used to allow light to travel through the tree’s crown to promote better air circulation, reducing wind resistance and minimizing the risk of disease by removing dead or overcrowded branches.
Crown Reduction is the removal of the uppermost branches of the tree’s canopy, cutting them shorter to decrease the tree height. This is done reduce the height and spread of a tree’s crown, to alleviate stress on the tree and manage its size in relation to its landscape.
Tree Pollarding is the process of significantly decreasing the size of a tree or shrub. This is normally done by cutting the main branch systems of trees to short stubs. The tree will then regrow and from the stumpy branches. Tree pollarding is usually done on trees in urban areas, street trees, and commercial landscapes.
