Crown Reduction and Crown Thinning
Reshaping a tree or clearing away part of a tree that is causing an obstruction or blocking a view can be tempting to do yourself but doing it incorrectly can permanently damage trees. When thinning tree crowns, we remove tree limbs evenly throughout the tree’s crown to ensure the crown’s weight is distributed evenly so as not to put undue stress on any part of the tree. Tree thinning is also sometimes done to allow more air and light to all parts of the tree to allow it to thrive and grow more easily.
In reducing the size of a tree’s crown, we make sure to cut the branches in the correct way to not damage the tree and cause the limb the die and ensure we prune the tree evenly to keep a good natural shape. When cutting a tree to clear a path or prevent an obstruction, it’s tempting to just cut that part back but this can leave the tree lopsided which looks unsightly and can damage the tree.
Similarly, when pruning a tree to either reshape it or to remove dead branches, it’s vital to do everything evenly to keep the tree’s shape looking natural and keep the weight evenly distributed.
