What is Crown Neatening? 

The tree crown is the part of a tree that you can see from the ground. It’s what makes a tree look like a beautiful, leafy green umbrella. Over the years trees will become overgrown and less aesthetically pleasing, so it’s likely that your tree crowns will need some maintenance.  

The best way to maintain your tree crowns is with our tree crown neatening services! We’ll come to your home and make sure that all of your trees are looking their best and help you to keep up appearances all year round.

Our crown neatening services will give you peace of mind and keep your trees looking their best. We’ll trim any branches that are overgrown and under-pruned so they blend into the rest of the tree well, making sure that everything looks even and balanced.

And we’ll also prune off any dead or diseased branches so they don’t spread disease to other parts of your tree or other plants around them.

Our crown neatening service is made up of crown reduction, crown lifting and crown thinning which we discuss in much more detail below.

Crown Reduction

Don’t let your tree’s crown get the best of you. If you’re like most people, you probably haven’t given much thought to your trees’ crowns. But we’re here to tell you that they’re a lot more important than you think! 

The crown of a tree is its topmost part, and it’s what gives leaves and branches their shape. It’s also where all of the leaves and branches are located, so if there’s something wrong with your crown, it could be causing problems down below. 

And when we talk about crown reduction, we mean taking branches off a tree to make it healthier—not just cutting them off at ground level! When done correctly, this process allows sunlight to reach deeper into the tree’s canopy and helps prevent diseases from spreading through the bark as well as many other benefits.

Benefits of Crown Reduction

What are the benefits of crown reduction? If you’re thinking about having your tree trimmed, here are some reasons to consider it:

  • It helps prevent damage to your property and other trees on your property If your tree’s canopy is too large, it can get weighed down in strong winds and rainstorms, which can cause branches to fall off or even break off completely. This can cause damage to your home or other structures on your property, as well as injury to people who are nearby at the time of the incident!
  • It helps prevent damage from insects and diseases spread by birds, squirrels, and other wildlife – a large amount of foliage provides cover for these creatures—and if they’re allowed to live there without interference from humans, they could end up causing serious damage with their droppings or by spreading diseases that could harm other plants on your property (or even people!).
  • It improves air quality in areas where trees grow tall enough that they block out sunlight from reaching the earth below them!
  • It improves the aesthetics of your tree and overall landscape.

Crown Thinning

Crown thinning is the process of removing selected branches to thin out the fullness of the tree. With proper techniques, thinning creates a balanced crown structure without altering the shape or size of the tree. It also reduces the weight on heavy limbs and removes dead, weak, overreaching or duplicated branches.

If you have a tree that has too much foliage and needs some help balancing out its crown, you may want to consider crown thinning.

This process can be done by yourself or with help from a professional arborist. If done correctly, it will not only improve the appearance of your tree but also increase its health and longevity.

Benefits of Crown Thinning

There are a few great reasons why you should consider crown thinning. Here are our top 5 reasons: 

  1. You have more control over appearance – crown thinning is an effective way to alter the appearance of your tree. With a little TLC such as removing poorly grown branches, you can completely transform the shape of your tree and return it to its former glory.
  1. More light, more health – through removing excess branches your tree will naturally receive more light and more sun exposure. This will increase the overall health of the tree.
  1. Eliminate those pesky infected branches – overcrowded branches tend to result in a higher chance of infestation and infection from insects and disease. Crown thinning is an effective way to get rid of these infected branches which therefore will increase the health of the tree.
  1. Higher production of fruits and flowers – crown thinning is an essential process for trees that are grown to produce fruits and flowers. The benefits of increased light, reduced infection and improvement in overall health, will naturally improve the tree’s ability to produce fruit and flowers.
  1. Less chance of damage from high winds crown thinning is effective in reducing the chance of damage from high winds or storms as a thinner tree will allow the air to pass through it easier. 

Crown Lifting

It’s really important that trees get enough sun—they need it to produce energy, which helps them grow and thrive. But sometimes, because of things like soil conditions, planting location, and other factors, trees aren’t getting enough exposure to sunlight.

This can cause them to become malnourished or deformed. This is where crown lifting comes in. Tree crown lifting is a great way to make your tree healthier and more aesthetically pleasing and it’s also a great way to give younger trees the head start they need to grow strong.

Essentially, crown lifting is the process of removing the lower branches of the tree to lift the height of the crown’s base. Doing this will increase the clearance between the ground and the lower branches, which in turn increases sun exposure and helps reduce the weight of the tree. 

Benefits of Crown Lifting

  • Increases sun exposure
  • Helps reduce the weight of the tree
  • Prevents the tree from becoming too overgrown and potentially causing a hazard
  • Improves tree aesthetics
  • Creates a higher tree canopy

Crown Neatening Questions

Crown lifting, like any pruning technique, should be done during the winter months when the tree is at its most dormant. This ensures that any sap doesn’t rise, which reduces the chances of weeping and bleeding.

Additionally, as the tree won’t have any leaves, you’ll have more room and sight to work. 

Crown reduction is a tree surgery technique that can reduce the height and/or spread of a tree’s crown – the part of a tree that carries leaves.

Crown reduction is done for a number of reasons, such as reducing the likelihood of damage from winds and storms, encouraging new growth, reducing infestation and infection from insects, improving the appearance of the tree and increasing light and sun exposure. 

Tree thinning should be done when there is too much foliage and the tree’s crown is not balanced.

Some studies indicate that you should remove no more than 15-20% of the foliage on older trees to prevent spouts and weak growth.
