Crown thinning

What is it?

If your broad-leaved tree is blocking light, blowing heavily in the wind or becoming too weighty, you’ll need to have its crown thinned.

This involves the removal of smaller, tertiary branches – usually at the outer crown – so that foliage is reduced in density and evenly spaced.
