Decongesting the crown allows more light and air to circulate through the crown. It promotes the tree to grow into its natural shape and reduces the sail area, decreasing the risk of branches snapping. Crown Thinning should be a consistent throughout and not alter the height and spread of the tree.
Pruning whereby dead, diseased, dying, crossing/rubbing branches are removed. ‘Form Pruning’ is an important service we provide. It reduces the risk of decay spreading throughout the tree. Form pruning should be carried out on both mature and young trees.
This type of pruning on young trees can prevent poor branch unions forming into larger, more significant problems in the future. It also removes twin leaders allowing the tree to grow into its natural shape. Form pruning also removes any dangerous dead wood that is high in the crown.
Certain trees require different methods of pruning. Clients may hear the term ‘Topping and Lopping’ as a general term for pruning. Although MLTC avoids this term and method, certain species of tree react better to it than others. We are more than happy to advise for any tree types.
