As towns and cities grow and expand, they begin encroaching on areas once covered with trees, and whilst many trees will be cut down there are often trees left for decoration.
However, this can cause problems as the tree continues to grow into the space around it, which is now limited. In these situations, crown lifting is a commonly used solution.
- Increase light below the canopy
- To provide access beneath the tree
In many locations, benches placed in the shade of a tree are a pleasently common feature. In these cases it’s important to maintain the crown above a safe height so there is no danger to pedestrians.
It’s important that crown lifting be carried out by a professional, because if done incorrectly,poor pruning cuts can use up stored energy to heal over large wounds. Also excessive crown lifting can alter the dynamics in high winds and lead to storm damage.
