  • Crown Lifting

    Crown lifting is the practice of promoting upwards growth on the bottom layer of the canopy. By removing the lower branches of your tree, more light is able to pass beneath the crown without impacting the strength of the tree’s structure. Many times this process is done to clear a path for a road, houses and other structures ridding the tree of its lowest hanging branches.

    Sometimes it is best to leave these branches to help protect structures from the upper canopy of the tree. These lower branches also play an important part in the stabilization of the trees structure!

    The lower branches of a tree are generally larger, it’s important to let the tree experts do the work, ensuring that your tree can heal and is strong enough to stand against the wind and other external factors.

  • Crown Thinning

    Thinning your tree means that we will remove selective branches throughout the crown, increasing light penetration, and air circulation throughout the tree. During crown thinning, we will work throughout the entire crown, including the outer edges, focusing on smaller branches that will not change the shape of the tree. It’s important to remember that you do not want to remove too many branches from your tree; doing so will change its structure, making it weaker and creating fewer areas that can be pruned in the future.

  • Crown Reduction

    Just as the name implies, a crown reduction is the process of reducing the overall size of the crown, shortening branches by cutting them back to the collar of another growth point that is 1/3 of the size of what you are removing. This technique can be very complicated at times and may result in several sessions to maintain the aesthetics and overall health of a tree. After all, most of the foliage is at the tips of the canopy. It is not recommend to remove over 1/3 of the foliage. For more info read topping/ hard topping. We suggest reduction when a tree has outgrown the space that it is in. This type of trimming is also popular among fruit trees making it easier and safer to harvest the fruit the tree bares.

    Crown reduction can result in large wounds at the end of branches which can begin to decay if not done properly and should only be performed on specific types of trees. When cutting branches back, the flowing branch line should be maintained, leaving a natural shape.
