Essential Tree Surgery Services

Tree surgery  involves lots of different processes to help trees stay in good condition and to protect buildings.  However, some of the most popular processes we use involve removing branches from the crown of the tree.  So what is the crown?

The crown is the top area of the tree where branches grow out from the main trunk.  It is the support system for all the leaves that grab the sunlight to change into food and feed the tree.  There are even different types of crowns that develop in different locations – for example, a dominant tree crown is one that reaches over the top of all of the other trees.

When it comes to tree surgery, the aim is to trim the crown in ways that reduce its size while still keeping the tree healthy.  One of the most common approaches for this is called a crown thinning.  The idea here is to remove some of the secondary branches from the outer part of the crown so that the tree has a more even shape and size.  It is a careful process that involves removing not more than 30% of the overall tree and is only done occasionally – some species of trees only ever have it done once.
