Tree Crown Thinning across Essex
Crown thinning involves removing a number of secondary branches from trees in such a way that it produces a balanced crown structure all without changing the general size or shape of the tree.
If you have a tree that is dense and causes a lot of shade, crown thinning will result in improved light levels passing through the canopy.
Crown thinning can help a tree in windy weather as it reduces the sail effect of the crown. It also reduces the wind impact upon the leaves and branches.
The experts at Tree Surgeon Essex will assess the tree and remove any weak, crossing or duplicated branches to get the best results.
Tree crown thinning involves methodically removing a number of secondary branches to achieve a balanced crown structure. Thinning out and reducing density should not alter the overall size or shape of the tree.
Tree thinning is one of the more difficult tree pruning services, as it produces a more subtle result than that of crown reduction or crown lifting.
Why should I choose tree thinning over crown reduction?
There are three main reasons why tree thinning may be preferred:
- Better light passing through the canopy
- Better resistance against the wind
- Helps reduce the overall weight of the tree
If you have trees in your garden that are blocking out too much light, crown thinning may be the solution to let more light in whilst keeping the overall appearance of the tree.
