What you need to know about crown thinning and cleaning from Take A Bough

When our local tree surgeons clean out and thin the crown of a tree as part of our tree services, branches are removed from within the tree crown in order to make it less dense. The natural size and shape of the tree is unaffected, but the wind resistance will be reduced and more light allowed to filter through. Our tree crown thinning services can also limit the amount of debris that is dropped naturally by the tree during gales or periods of extreme cold.

Thinning the tree’s crown will also include the removal of any crossed or suppressed branches and also the removal of any dead wood. The material left should contribute to an even crown in terms of density. This specialized tree cutting process will also limit the chances of future dead branches making the trees safer in urban London gardens.

Customer review for our crown thinning service

Wondering whether our tree services are right for you? Below is a 5-star Google review Take A Bough received for our crown thinning service:

TABtrees did an excellent job in our garden. They reduced the height and thinned out our olive tree and also thinned an acer. They were on time and completed the job efficiently and tidily. We chose them as they seemed very knowledgeable about trees and we weren’t disappointed. We’ll definitely be asking them back when needed.

We take great pride in offering the best local tree services around, and this is just one of many hugely positive reviews we receive from our clients.
