Crown Lifting

Crown Lifting is the skilled technique of increasing the clear space below the foliage of a tree. This is often required in urban areas where the space under a tree is used for access i.e. pedestrians or vehicles need to pass under a tree safely or the space is used for parking etc. Crown Lifting involves the removal of the lower branches and the trimming of other remaining branch foliage to reduce their weight and allow them to lift up naturally. This can be done to achieve any required height clearance.

In situations where Crown Lifting is carried specifically for the purpose of clear out for access, the service may need to be repeated on a regular basis in order to maintain an acceptable level of clearance.

Crown Reduction

Crown Reduction is where you bring an overall shape to the crown of the tree. Crown reduction is one of the common techniques used today in pruning trees. This is where you cut the foliage from the outer edge into the crown, reducing the overall shape and size of the tree. When doing this type of reduction, ideally all cuts should be made to a bud or as close as you can to a partnering limb.


By doing this you can ensure that the tree has maintained its health and will not be as prone to limbs dying off or diseases. It reduces the weight of the tree and can potentially prevent limbs becoming dangerous and snapping in adverse weather conditions. When Crown reducing, the tree should always be balanced.

Crown reduction forms a major part of our daily work. We will advise you on our suggestion for the percentage of reduction required for your type of tree to achieve the best results, both aesthetically and structurally.

Crown Thinning

Crown Thinning is a technique used to remove heavy congestion of shoots within a tree. Crown thinning also allows more light to pass through a tree and reduces wind resistance, making the tree stronger in adverse weather conditions. When done correctly, Crown thinning also reduces the weight of each limb and makes the tree healthier and stronger. Crown Thinning has some similarities to the technique of Dead Wooding and often the two pruning techniques are carried out hand in hand.

Dead Wooding

Dead Wooding is where branches or limbs die off within a tree and can either break off or become vulnerable. These limbs can then fall over time or during periods of high winds and storms. If dead limbs are left, they will affect the overall health of the tree as rot can set in and spread to healthy areas. This can eventually lead to fungus issues and further damage, rendering the tree beyond help.

Dead wooding is mainly used for safety and for the continued health of a tree, though there are other benefits too. A lot of dead wood in a tree reduces its aesthetic appearance and this in turn reduces the amount of light that can pass through and makes the tree more susceptible to high winds. If dead wooding is left unattended, it attracts pests and diseases. The removal of dead wood reduces the weight of a tree and so reduces the risk of limbs breaking off. Dead Wooding is often carried out hand in hand with Crown Thinning.

We are often contracted to work within Schools, Complexes, Office parks, Shopping Centres, commercial and private properties.

Diseased Trees


Dead, diseased or dying trees can pose a major threat to the environment, as the large quantities of dead wood and the damage to the stability of the tree can create serious safety hazards, particularly during strong winds.

If not contained, the disease can spread to other types of trees which can see an entire species descend into extinction. As such, the help of a professional must be sought immediately to ensure the most appropriate action is taken.

The earlier the issue is identified, the quicker it can be rectified to protect the safety of the environment and those walking nearby. A thorough assessment of the tree will determine which course of care is required so that any problems are dealt with in the correct manner. More often than not, in the case of a dead or infected tree, the most appropriate course of action is tree felling.
