What Is Crown Thinning, Lifting & Reduction

Crown thinning means to remove some of the smaller branches, usually at the outer crown to thin out and produce a uniform density of foliage. Crown thinning done properly will not affect the overall size or shape of the tree. This technique is usually used to allow more light through the tree or to reduce wind resistance.

Crown lifting or raising means pruning the tree from the ground up, usually to a clearly specified height to gain clearance under the tree. For example, we could prune the tree to gain a 5m clearance above ground level to allow for parking access.

Crown reduction means reducing the height or spread of the tree, often used when the tree is getting big for the site and the owner wants to allow more light into a garden. This should be done carefully and sympathetically over the whole crown and must not be confused with ‘topping’ an indiscriminate and harmful process of just removing the top of a tree.
