Tree Crown Reductions & Thinning

Maintaining the shape and health of a tree, while also minimising any negative impact on whatever else is around, requires a number of different pruning techniques. At Scotts Tree Surgery & Garden Maintenance, our experienced and skilled tree surgeons can carry out all necessary processes including tree crown reductions, tree thinning and tree lifting.

Tree crown reductions – the crown of a tree comprises its leaves and branches but not its trunk. Reducing the crown’s height and/or spread means that any stress on individual branches will be eased, while tree reductions also allow more light to filter through and lower the amount of shade in the surrounding area.

Tree thinning – this reduces the density of the canopy through the removal of secondary branches. This will give the tree a more balanced structure without any noticeable change in its shape or size. We are regularly asked to perform pine tree thinning and fruit tree thinning, with the latter being a great way of achieving an improved crop.

Tree Lifting

Tree lifting is the process of removing the lower branches of a tree so that the base of the crown is raised. This allows more light to pass through the tree while also reducing the tree’s overall weight and increasing the clearance between the ground and the remaining lower branches.
