Difference between reduction, thinning and lifting

Tree crown reduction

Tree crown reduction is a service performed in order to make your tree grow more stable and allow sunlight to reach all of its branches, while also reducing the amount of deadwood that forms in its interior. This is done by cutting back the primary branches and foliage of your tree’s crown.

Since tree crown reduction is an incredibly technical horticultural technique, we always send a team of professional and experienced tree surgeons. The experts normally cut back the tree’s primary branches down to the level of its secondary ones.

Tree crown thinning

For this service, the tree surgeons we send on-site will remove certain branches throughout your tree’s crown. Tree crown thinning is performed in order to allow sunlight to pass through your tree’s foliage and disperse through the crown evenly. Best of all, this service doesn’t stunt the tree’s natural growth cycle in any way whatsoever.

If you’re concerned about your tree’s health more than its size, then you can still benefit from crown thinning, as it’s a great way to restore its wellbeing. The tree surgeons will prune your tree crown’s dead or diseased branches, preventing their issues from spreading to the rest of the tree.

Once that’s done they’ll move on and remove branches from your tree crown’s overcrowded areas. This will make it look neater and healthier.

Tree crown lifting

As part of our crown lifting service, the experts remove the lower branches of your tree when they’re interfering with non-organic objects, such as buildings, vehicles, and fences. This service is also great for clearing up low-hanging branches, which are blocking the view beyond your garden.

An added benefit of having the lower branches and limbs of your tree’s crown pruned is that this will raise the canopy of your tree. This, in turn, will lift the tree canopy’s overall size from the bottom up.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q: When is tree crown reduction needed?

    A: The most common reason for crown reduction is when a tree becomes too large for its own good. An overgrown tree with huge, overhanging branches can not only block sunlight from reaching your property, but can also become a health hazard during storms and bad weather.

  • Q: When’s the best time of year to have tree crown reduction carried out?

    A: As far as deciduous trees are concerned we recommend booking your crown reduction service in winter. This is the time of year when the trees will be leafless, making the procedure a lot safer and delivering better results. But winter aside, we also perform crown reduction during any other time of the year, as there are trees that require urgent treatment that can’t wait.

  • Q: Why is tree crown thinning important?

    A: When performed by professionals, tree thinning can improve the light levels passing through the tree’s canopy, while also reducing the wind taking its tow on its limbs.

  • Q: When to get your tree’s crown lift?

    A: We can perform crown lifting during any stage of your tree’s life. However, it’s best to do so while the tree is still young. This way, it will grow into a practical shape once it gets older and won’t be barred with scars.
