Tree Crown Thinning Guildford

As well as offering crown reduction, we also provide crown thinning which is the process of removing select branches to thin our the fullness of the tree.  When performed correctly on your tree by fully qualified arborists, your tree will hugely benefit in the long-term and for the years to come.  Crown thinning allows light in and is useful when branches get too crowded with results in leaves and stems competing with one another for light and nutrients.

Moreover, the benefits of crown thinning also include the ability to protect the tree from surrounding winds.  Thanks to crown thinning, you can significantly lower the safety risk of trees being knocked out and enormous amounts of damage being done to your grounds.

How Does Tree Crown Thinning in Berkshire, Hampshire & Surrey Work?

The process of crown thinning starts with a simple survey where our arborists will visit your premises at a convenient day and time for you.  Once we understand the extent of work that needs to be done, our team will then start preparing the relevant climbing equipment needed for the job.  It’s highly likely that our arborists will remove up to 30% of your crown in order to expose your trees to more light and nutrients.

Even after completion of the job and removing select branches, we will make sure that the surrounding area is neat and tidy just like hoe we found it.  This method of tree pruning is a proven one but is particularly effective on on non-coniferous trees such as Cherry trees, Oak trees, Sycamore trees and Birch trees to name just a few examples.
