Tree Crown Reductions, Pruning & Lopping
When you need to limit the size or spread of trees in your garden, or if you need to have them cut back to enable successful and attractive future growth, we can carry out tree crown reduction, tree crown thinning and tree lopping and pruning.
Our skilled tree surgeons have the experience and knowledge to ensure such works are performed safely and effectively to improve both your outside space and your tree’s aesthetics, as well as aiding future growth and/or fruit yield.
If you’re not sure how these services differ and how they can help your trees thrive, let’s look at them in more detail.
What is tree crown reduction?
The crown includes the branches and leaves of a tree, but not the trunk. Tree crown reduction involves reducing the height and/or spread of your tree’s crown. Reducing the crown lowers the stress on individual branches and can allow more light through and reduce the amount of shade on your property or garden.
What is tree crown thinning?
Tree crown thinning involves removing secondary branches to produce a more balanced structure to the tree without altering its shape or size.
What is tree pruning?
Although tree pruning also involves the removal of branches, it will generally be for practical rather than aesthetic reasons. This can include removing dead or other branches to maintain the tree in a safe condition, promote growth or produce better fruit, timber or flowers.
That means that regular apple tree pruning, or pruning a pear tree, is likely to produce better fruit, while pruning a magnolia tree should result in a more impressive display of its flowers in spring.
