Crown Thinning

When a crown is thinned, the overall shape of the tree is not altered.

Any branches that rub against each other or are crossed are removed during crown thinning. After which, the tree is pruned, so the crown density will be reduced. Also remember, the treeā€™s natural shape will be retained.

Tree Crown ThinningĀ involves removing a number of secondary branches in such a way that it produces a balanced crown structure, without altering the overall size or shape of the tree. It results in improved light levels passing through the canopy thus reducing shading. It reduces the sail effect of the crown and also reduces the wind loading upon the limbs of the tree.
