Tree Crown Thinning
Definition: The selective removal of weak tree branches to create gaps in the canopy.
Having your tree’s crown thinned is a great way to prevent storm damage by reducing the weight of the tree and allowing more wind to flow through the branches, reducing the wind load. It also reduces the risk of weak branches snapping and falling out of the tree in high winds. It is a time-consuming task when done correctly but is worth it for tree maintenance and peace of mind. It also has the bonus of reducing tree droppings such as leaf, seed, sap and branch droppings.
- Storm prevention method to reduce the weight load of the tree
- Allow airflow through the tree to reduce wind load and damage
- Allow sunlight penetration
- Reduce tree droppings such as leaf, sap, seeds, sticks etc.
