Crowning is done by removing a portion of smaller/tertiary branches, usually at the outer crown, to produce a uniform density of foliage around an evenly spaced branch structure. It is usually confined to broad-leaved species. Crown thinning does not alter the overall size or shape of the tree.
Crown Lifting Increase the gap between ground level and the crown. This is normally achieved by removing the lowest branches of the crown, to a specified height.
The ends of all branches are reduced, in length, back to suitable ‘growth points’ (side branches). As a result the entire tree crown is reduced, in size and volume, whilst retaining the natural shape of the species. This procedure is usually stipulated in terms of a percentage rarely more than 25%.
Branches are removed from within the tree crown in order to make it uniformly less dense. The natural shape of the tree is completely unaffected but the wind resistance is reduced and more light allowed to filter through. This procedure is usually stipulated in terms of a percentage, rarely more than 30%. This is a very effective way prohibiting a tree from falling, especially in unpredictable weather conditions.
Really didn’t think you would be able to finalise this difficult job in such a short time. Well done Boys!
