Crown thinning and lifting


Aerial Tree Services offer a compleat crown thinning and lifting solution.

Crown thinning is the removal of a portion of smaller branches to produce a uniform density in the foliage creating an even structure of branches usually on broad leaved species. Crown thinning does not change the overall size or shape of the tree.

Crown lifting is the process of removing low branches that may be hanging too low and causing an obstruction to paths or driveways.

Reasons for crown thinning or lifting include:

  • to allow more light
  • reduce wind resistance
  • reduce weight
