Tree Crown Lifting
Lower Branches are removed to effectively raise the crown, which is the whole branch structure of the tree. This is a very useful treatment of large garden trees where shading is a problem, as the light can come in underneath the tree.
Proper Crown Lifting Procedure
When crown lifting trees, the large primary branches that grow directly from the trunk should be left. Removing them creates large wounds that can lead to decay.
Crown lifting mature and older trees should be restricted to the secondary branches. This reduces recovery time and minimises stress for the trees. As recommended by the British standard for tree works BS3998:2010, crown lifting should be restricted to no more than 50% of the crown’s height. This leaves the crown at least two thirds of the tree’s total height.
