Do you have a tree in your garden that is obstructing the driveway or path? Crown lifting is the removal of specific branches near the base of the crown to produce a higher start point in the canopy from ground level. This can be used to remove obstructing branches at head height or above and also as a means to create a more light into an area. Professional Tree Surgeons Ltd will come and remove these lower branches leaving you with a clear walkway or driveway. The statutory height of branches over footpaths is 2.5m and over highways is 5.0m so if you are in need of our crown thinning services, get in touch today.

Crown thinning is the removal of a small proportion of live woody growth from the crown of the tree to produce an even canopy of foliage on a well-balanced structural form. The aim is to reduce the density of the foliage without greatly altering the shape of the tree as to reduce the wind resistance.

Crown reduction is a reduction of the overall size of the complete outer dimension of the canopy, from the tips of branches/limbs towards the main trunk. The point of pruning should be made back to an acceptable branch, twig or bud.


The majority of broadleaved species can only withstand crown reduction works on a number of occasions because removal of too much live foliage will inhibit the trees ability for future growth.
