If you have an old tree in your landscape, it may be overgrown. That’s why we provide our tree crown thinning services.

We’ll strategically lop off tree limbs that are excessive, obstructive, or dangerous. If you’re considering tree crown thinning, we’ll take a look at your tree and devise a crown thinning plan that fits your needs, while ensuring that your tree still thrives. Now, there are numerous reasons to thin your tree’s canopy. Here are a few of the most common reasons you ought to have your tree canopies thinned:

Why Thin Your Trees’ Crowns?

Most often, we’ll thin out tree canopy if trees are competing, if they’re creating too much shade, if they’re a danger to your property, or if the limbs are unhealthy or dying.

Competing Branches

If you have a tree with branches that are rubbing against each other, it may be best to cut one of the branches to save the other. We’ll assess your unique situation, and determine whether or not a branch can be saved. Often, it’s healthy for the tree to thin out some of the branches, since other branches will receive more sunlight and nutrients.

More Sunlight

As we just mentioned, your tree’s leaves need sunlight to thrive. If your leaves aren’t receiving enough light, crown thinning may be the solution. Crown thinning also helps your lawn and other flora throughout your landscape to thrive.

Danger to Your Property

Have branches that are scraping into your home? Or branches that are dangling over a sidewalk? We’ll take out the hazard.

Pests, Unhealthy Limbs, and Dead Limbs

Do you have tree limbs that aren’t their healthiest? If pests, natural disasters, or age have battered your tree, we can lop off limbs that aren’t growing. Keep an eye out for limbs that aren’t growing leaves, limbs that are discolored, and limbs that are missing bark; they’ll likely need to be removed. Don’t worry, removing these limbs will help your tree’s overall health!
