Crown Thinning

Crown Thinning

The image above illustrates how crown thinning, a tree pruning technique, removes excess branches and leaves.

Crown thinning refers to a specific method of tree trimming. In the world of tree trimming, there is crowning, lifting, and reduction. Crown thinning maintains the size and shape of your tree, yet thins out the volume of leaves and branches. This allows for benefits to the tree or you, the homeowner, such as increased light through the tree, reduced wind resistance and swaying in windy or stormy weather, less overall weight and less shedding.

You might be asking yourself if crown thinning is as important as we make it out to be. As our certified arborists on staff will tell you, the crowning process is vitally important to the health and integrity of your tree, especially if you have multiple trees in a row where spacing is an issue. The size and ratio of the crown, relative to the rest of the tree (trunk included) will affect the health and survival of trees that are closely located. Allowing each tree an opportunity to thrive in its own environment is important to consider while maintaining the beauty of your property. We offer residential and commercial crown thinning services in the following areas:
