Crown Reduction

A reduction of 10% to 30% of the trees crown.

Crown reduction, also known as crown thinning, is a pruning operation that results in the overall reduction in height and spread of the crown.

The reduction is usually between 10% to 30% of the tree however it depends on the current size of the tree and requirement given by our client. 

Crown reductions are used to keep the tree in balance and a more manageable size to maintain as well as getting the maximum amount of light to the desired area.

When the canopy of a tree grows thick and heavy it can make it difficult for light and wind to pass through, which can cause problems. If a tree is too dense it will often become dangerous.

Crown Lifting

The removal of lower branches to achieve ground clearance.

Crown lifting is the removal of the lower branches to achieve clearance above ground level and other surfaces.

This service is commonly required to maintain public environments in order to remove branches over highways, byways, footpaths and driveways.

Crown lifting can also be used to provide canopy clearance over buildings, fences, shrub beds and other surfaces where the lower tree canopy may encroach. 

Crown lifting is removal of the lowest branches of a tree’s crown, lifting the height of the crown without affecting the height of tree.

When a tree’s height is not a problem but low hanging branches are, this is the perfect solution.

Tree Planting

We provide a tree planting service.

Our tree planting service involves planting trees in your desired area. We can supply you with new sapling trees for your garden. We advise customers on what trees are suitable for their gardens taking into account the garden space available. 


The crown of a tree is removed to leave only the main trunk system.

Pollarding is a pruning system in which the upper branches of a tree are removed. Pollarding typically promotes a dense head of foliage and branches when the tree grows back.
