Thinning, Reducing & Lifting

Thinning
For when the crown has become too thick, blocking light out for other plants or houses, selectively removing excessive branches.

Reducing
Removing height and reshaping. Typically used in leaning and improperly weighted trees and to protect utility lines – eg: BT.

Lifting
The removal of branches at the base of the tree, e.g: over pathways and driveways.
