Arboricultural Services

Tree Crown Lifting.

The ‘crown’ of a tree is measured from where the branches start, to the very top – the leafy part – and does not include the main trunk.

At Landscape Services, we realise that each tree tells a unique story and the way we care for them reflects our commitment to preserving their narrative and our environment. Our comprehensive tree management offering includes services such as crown thinning, crown lifting and crown reduction, each designed to ensure the health and longevity of your trees.

Crown thinning is a delicate process that aims to enhance a tree's structure and form while reducing potential risks. By selectively removing branches, we improve light penetration and air movement throughout the crown of the tree. Our crown lifting service involves removing the lower branches of a tree, primarily to enhance clearance for pedestrians and light penetration to the ground below. Done correctly, this not only provides practical benefits but also enhances the tree's aesthetic appeal.

In contrast, crown reduction decreases the height or spread of a tree by pruning back the leaders and branch terminals to secondary branches. This service is generally used when a tree has outgrown its allocated space, or to reduce the effects of shading and light loss. Each tree management operation is conducted by our team of skilled arborists who adhere to the highest standards of safety and regulations. We take great care to maintain the health and structural integrity of your trees, ensuring that they continue to be an asset to your landscape.

Ultimately, Landscape Services is dedicated to offering comprehensive and professional tree management services. We understand that maintaining the natural beauty of your open space, while simultaneously ensuring the safety of the people who live, work or visit, is your top priority.

The benefits of crown lifting

Crown lifting provides a multitude of benefits beyond simply improving the look of a tree. From enhancing sunlight penetration to improving safety, the advantages are many;

  • Improved aesthetics: Crown lifting can significantly enhance the appearance of your tree, lending it a well-maintained and attractive look that can add value to your property.
  • Increased sunlight: By removing the lower branches, crown lifting allows more sunlight to reach the ground underneath, brightening up your outdoor space and encouraging the growth of grass and other plants.
  • Better airflow: Crown lifting improves air circulation around the tree and through its branches. This can be particularly beneficial in reducing the damp, still conditions that some tree diseases thrive in.
  • Enhanced views: For properties with stunning vistas, a well-executed crown lift can enhance the view by opening up sightlines previously obstructed by lower branches.
  • Reduced property damage risk: Crown lifting can help prevent property damage by removing low hanging branches that may scrape roofs or obstruct pathways.
  • Improved safety: By removing lower branches, crown lifting can minimise the risk of injury from falling branches, making the space safer for both people and property.

Ultimately, crown lifting can dramatically improve the health, beauty and safety of your outdoor space, making it an essential part of comprehensive tree management.
