Crown Raising and Reduction
Continuous years of hard work, proper care and attention result in healthy trees. Regular care over time will preserve the integrity of the tree in a perfect condition. Let's find out about each of the methods in depth.
Tree Crown Raising
The raising of the tree crown, also known as the crown lifting is the activity of removing or shortening the lower hanging branches of the tree. Sometimes it's essential to cut these branches as they intervene with everyday movement, parking and even pedestrian traffic. Cutting the lower sections of the tree balances the growth to the upper part of the tree. Some arborists recommend cutting those instead of entirely removing, as you minimise the risk of harming the tree integrity, and we always recommend this activity takes place on a case by case basis.
Tree Crown Reduction
A crown reduction is a process of pruning a tree. It removes the excess burden of the branch ends, resulting in a healthier tree and formation of a newer crown. Not only does it improve the appearance of the tree but also supports its health without making changes to the structure.
Overall, the tree crown reduction process includes cutting the heavy and defective branches, giving it a smaller crown and improved finish, and allowing more light into a given As a consequence; the tree will grow in a healthier and maintain a better structure.
Sometimes it is necessary to cut the excess branches of the trees. The professionals at Tree Pro Sussex will be delighted to offer you arborist services of tree crown reduction, raise or lopping service. Contact us to discuss more information.
A note on Lopping and Topping
Lopping refers to the process of removing a large side a branch (by making vertical cuts). In contrast, topping refers to the removal of large portions of the crown of the tree (the making of horizontal cuts, generally through the main stems). Most professional Tree Surgeons would agree that this approach is only typically used as part of the tree removal process, although this is not always exclusively the case.
