Crown lifting usually involves the cutting back of branches to the main stem in order to increase the clearance between the ground and the lower branches. Crown lifting is often seen in trees by roadsides to keep the area below the tree clear for vehicles and may also be carries out to:
- Allow for access below the tree
- To improve light
- Balanced lower crown to improve the tree aesthetically.
South East Tree surgeons may try to avoid crown lifting in mature trees, as this can increase the probability of decay and future stem failure, but if it cannot be avoided, our Tree Surgeons would preferably involve the removal of secondary branches rather than total branch removal. Please ask us and we will be very happy to advise.
