What is Crown Raising?
Crown raising helps improve light levels by allowing more sunlight to reach around or through the canopy.
Crown raising is the process of removing lower branches from trees in order to provide clearance for buildings, roads, walkways and other features.
This can improve the appearance of a tree while providing necessary safety and accessibility.
It is important to note that crown raising should be performed with caution as it can cause significant strain on the structure of the tree if done incorrectly.
The Reasons for Crown Raising
- Increasing overall visibility and access around the tree
- Improving light levels – allowing more sunlight to reach foliage or grass areas
- Removing dead, diseased, or damaged branches – these can create an unsafe environment
- Reducing the risk of wind damage – especially in areas where there are high winds
- Aesthetics – enhancing the appearance of a property.
Benefits of Crown Raising
Crown raising is a beneficial and necessary action for many trees on properties, as it can improve the accessibility of walkways and roads while reducing potential hazards.
Additionally, crown raising can help to reduce the risk of wind damage in areas where there are high winds.
To ensure that crown raising is done safely and correctly, it should always be performed by an experienced professional with the right knowledge and tools.
At Arborcare Tree Surgery we offer expert crown raising services to help keep your property safe and accessible.
Our experienced team will carefully prune out any lower branches according to industry standards to provide increased visibility and light levels without compromising on the health of the tree.
What is the best time of year for crown raising?
The best time of year for crown raising depends on the species of tree, as some trees have different pruning requirements depending on the season.
Generally speaking, winter months are good times to carry out any pruning work as this is when the tree goes into dormancy and won’t be actively growing.
However, some trees like oaks should not be pruned during this time, so it’s important to check before carrying out any work.
If you have any questions about when would be best for your tree to be pruned, the Arborcare team is more than happy to help.
