CROWN THINNING, REDUCTIONS & LIFTING SERVICES
At Yorkshire Tree Surgery we're your local experts when it comes to nurturing and managing the beautiful trees that grace our beloved Yorkshire landscape. Whether you're a homeowner with a cherished backyard tree or a property manager with an array of majestic oaks and pines, we're here to ensure they're in the best possible health and shape. One of the ways we achieve this is through professional crown work, including crown thinning, crown reductions, and crown lifting. Let's dive into what each of these entails.
Have you ever looked up at a tree and thought it looked a bit too dense and cluttered? That's where crown thinning comes in.
WHAT IS IT?
Crown thinning is a pruning technique where we selectively remove branches from the canopy. This results in improved light penetration and air circulation, which can be especially beneficial for the undergrowth and the overall health of the tree.
Reduces the strain on the tree during windy conditions.
Helps prevent disease by promoting better air circulation.
Enhances the tree's natural form without altering its size or shape.
Sometimes, a tree can grow a little too enthusiastic for its space, potentially leading to safety concerns or it overshadowing other plants.
WHAT IS IT?
During a crown reduction, we reduce the height and/or spread of a tree by trimming its outermost branches. The goal is to create a more compact, balanced, and safe shape while ensuring the tree remains healthy and attractive.
Maintains the health and longevity of the tree.
Reduces the risk of branches breaking during storms.
Provides clearance from buildings, streetlights, or power lines.
When the lower branches of a tree become an obstacle or hinder the view, it's time for a crown lift.
WHAT IS IT?
Crown lifting involves removing the lower branches of a tree to increase the clearance between the ground and the canopy. This process doesn't affect the overall height of the tree, but it can have a transformative effect on your space.
Creates a clearer pathway beneath the tree, perfect for pathways or driveways.
Enhances the view of landscapes beyond the tree.
Helps to prevent potential hazards, especially in public areas.
