Crown Lifting & Reduction Plymouth

crown reduction plymouth

One of the more effective and popular tree pruning techniques involves crown lifting and reduction.  Crown lifting is the removal of the lowest branches and/or preparing of lower branches for future removal.  These techniques are commonly used to increase the clearance between the ground and the lower in order to help improve light levels, improve the aesthetics of the tree, and allow for access below the tree.

Crown Thinning Plymouth

Another common tree pruning method used is crown thinning.  This technique is used to preserve the lifespan of the tree(s) by removing a number of secondary branches to create a much more balanced crown structure.  The purpose of crown thinning, similar to crown reduction, is by exposing trees to increased light levels to grow and flourish.  Crown and tree thinning may be required to reduce the sail effect of the crown and also to reduce the wind loading upon the limbs of the tree.


pollarding plymouth

Pollarding is a method of tree pruning that keeps trees and shrubs smaller than they would naturally grow.  The main benefit of pollarding and this particular tree pruning technique is the fact that it allows us to remove the tree’s lateral branches helping to keep the tree young and healthy.  Younger and healthier trees are much less likely to attract disease and insects and therefore generally last longer.

Why Is Tree Pruning Important?

Tree pruning is essential in developing and maintaining trees, helping them to grow into their strong structure as they mature.  Pruning a tree can heavily influence the way in which a tree grows for the better and our industry-proven tree pruning methods best manipulate the configuration of limbs and branches.

Tree pruning is best performed during fall or winter during the dormant season.  This is because, during these seasons, trees are much less likely to attract insects and diseases.  Therefore, pruning is a proactive approach that can positively impact the health of your trees and preserve their lifespan without attracting disease or pests.
