Crown Thinning & Reduction

Crown Thinning and Crown Reduction

Crown thinning is the removal of a small portion of secondary branches to produce a uniform density of foliage around an evenly spaced branch structure. Crown thinning does not alter the overall size or shape of the tree. Common reasons for it are to allow more light to pass through the tree, reduce wind resistance or to lessen the weight of heavy branches and improve the form of the tree.

Crown reduction is used to reduce the height and/or spread of the crown of a tree by the removal of the ends of branches whilst maintaining the tree’s natural shape as far as is practicable.

Crown Thinning – A Case Study

This tree, in the grounds of St. Thomas the Martyr Church, Winchelsea, was drastically thinned to allow more light to the neighbouring houses. We used a chainsaw to remove clusters of secondary and tertiary branches while leaving the shape of the crown and the primary branches intact.
