Crown Thinning and Crown Clean Eastbourne & East Sussex

Crown Thinning & Crown Clean

Thinning is the selective removal branches to reduce crown density. Thinning allows sunlight to penetrate through the crown to the ground or into a property. This can temporarily improve durability in a storm. 

Crown clean is a general term used to describe the removal of smaller diameter growth within the crown of a tree such as sucker/epicormic growth. Some types of trees naturally produce large amounts of sucker growth. Other trees may send out sucker growth due to stress or from being previously excessively pruning.

When crown cleaning any major deadwood would also be removed especially if the tree is within a high-risk area i.e. regularly used footpath, highway, or garden area.
