A strong tree will have a full, vibrant crown. It’s good to have a tree with a full canopy, and that speaks volumes about the health of the tree. That said, it’s important to maintain that health by maintaining the crown of the tree. Your tree’s crown (all of the branches and leaves stemming off of the trunk) should be trimmed regularly to maintain your tree’s health, and if you prefer, you can trim the crown of your tree to improve its structure, to reduce the shade your tree casts, and to improve the views that you have from your property.

Structural Pruning

Structural pruning is just that: pruning that’s intended to improve the structure of your tree. Depending on the tree type, most trees thrive with one or two dominant branches (the largest branches which ascend vertically from the trunk). To ensure that these larger branches are competing for nutrients and sunlight, we can cut off any superfluous branches. We’ll also lop off any lower branches around your tree, which may be obstructive (or hazardous) for passersby.

Crown Reduction for Your Vista

If your trees are blocking your favorite view, we can help. No matter how hard we may try to control tree growth, it’s inevitable that branches will grow in unexpected directions. And when a branch ends up smack-dab in front of your window, it can be a nuisance. Fortunately, we’re here to bring back your favorite views. Enlighten your home, and reclaim your property from an overgrown thicket of trees with crown reduction from Able Tree Experts.

Crown Reduction for Sunlight

Large lush trees can actually hinder the health of plants throughout your property if they reduce the sunlight below the canopy enough. In this instance, we can remove upper canopy limbs to bring sunlight back to your landscape. With canopy reduction to improve the lighting in your landscape, your plants and lawn will be grateful. We’ll work with you to formulate a canopy reduction strategy to improve the amount of sunlight on your property to meet your desires.

Crown Reduction for Tree Health

Trees actually thrive when they have some of their limbs removed. When you have a large, overgrown tree, limbs can begin to die off since they aren’t receiving enough nutrients from the soil or sunlight to the limb’s leaves. In these instances, it’s helpful to reduce the amount of branches throughout the tree in order to give the remaining branches a boost in nutrients and sunlight. If you’re considering crown reduction to improve the health of your tree, it’s best to have limbs lopped off in late winter or early spring.
