How we can help?
Crown thinning is carried out to penetrate more sunlight without altering the overall shape and physical appearance of trees by removing some parts of the plant without cutting the whole tree. Pruning methods are applied to trees involving the selective removal of certain branches, buds, or stems. Diseased wood and crossing branches are removed while retaining their natural shape.
The tree is pruned to reduce crown density; crown thinning increases the circulation and movement of air throughout the crown and helps achieve ecological goals such as increasing biodiversity with other tree crowns and increasing the seepage of light. Early trimming helps tree stability against various environmental factors like snow and windstorm.
It is essential to ensure that too much live growth is not removed within a frame period of a year. Crown thinning should be carefully done by a Certified tree worker.
