Crown Thinning

Crown Thinning

Crown thinning involves the removal of a proportion of secondary and small live growth from throughout the entire crown. This results in an even density of foliage. Crossing, weak and dead or damaged branches are also removed. This allows more light through the tree and a better resistance to high winds. This means that the wind can pass through the crown of the tree, and can improve the trees’ stability.

Crown thinning can be a really viable alternative to crown reduction.
