Pruning > Crown Cleaning

In cases where branches overhang gardens, buildings/structures or neighbouring property, the complete removal of all branches that overhang is usually not acceptable.

The purpose of crown cleaning is to keep the tree in a safe and healthy condition. This involves removing dead, diseased, broken, crossing, crowded, weakly attached, and sometimes low vigour branches. We will only do crown cleaning where there is a real possibility of falling branches causing accidents or injury, or if diseased branches threaten the tree’s health. Dead wood has immense ecological value and we don’t usually remove it from trees which are away from very public areas, for example in quiet areas of parks and woodlands.
