Crown Reduction, Thinning and Lifting.

Crown Reduction, Thinning and Lifting.

Pruning trees when young may reduce the need for major pruning in middle age and maturity. Pruning may also enhance fruit production/flowering.

Reduction – the natural shape of the tree is retained whilst making the overall canopy smaller, enabling more light and resulting in spaces appearing larger.

Thinning -removal of smaller branches from inside the trees crown increasing light without effecting the overall size.

Liftind – removal of lower branches clearing the area between the ground and the crown this creates more light whilst retaining the natural shape of the canopy.
