Crown Reduction

The reduction of a tree which maintains the overall shape. The tree should grow back in as natural a shape as possible, thus maintaining the beauty of the tree.  A good solution if a tree has outgrown its desired size or is cutting out too much light.

Crown Lifting

The removal of low branches which may be interfering with, mowing, footpaths, roads, etc. The height is not reduced but it lets in much more light.

Crown Thinning

The removal of branches so the tree is left with an all-round even density to encourage natural regrowth. The height is not reduced. Tree thinning is a good option if more light is needed to the property. Dead wood is also removed (see below).

Dead Wooding

The removal for safety reasons of any dead wood from the tree’s crown. Dead wood can soon be dislodged in the wind and can cause damage or injury. Normally dead wood greater that 40mm diameter is removed.

Pollarding

A drastic way of controlling a tree’s size. This method is often used for street trees and trees in a confined area. Branches are removed at a given height but the tree is unsightly until it regrows. It is often better to crown lift and prune a tree rather than pollard.

Proper tree pruning enhances the health, safety and appearance of trees in urban and residential settings. Pruning helps maintain structural integrity by removing dead, diseased or broken branches. It also promotes balanced growth by eliminating crowded, crossing and competing branches. Ideal pruning cuts are made just outside the branch collar, avoiding damage to the trunk. Pruning can regulate size and shape for aesthetic purposes, improve airflow and light penetration, or clear branches interfering with power lines or structures.
