Crown lifting is a type of tree pruning that involves removing the lower branches of a tree’s crown, the part of the tree that includes its branches and leaves. Typically performed on mature trees that have grown too close to buildings or other structures, or those that are interfering with power lines or obstructing views, crown lifting is an essential part of tree care and maintenance.
Crown lifting has a range of benefits. Primarily, it helps to reduce the risk of damage to property or injury to people by preventing branches from falling onto structures or pedestrians. By removing lower branches, crown lifting can also improve the health of a tree by promoting better air circulation and allowing more light to reach the lower branches. Furthermore, crown lifting can enhance the aesthetic appearance of a tree, giving it a more uniform and balanced shape.
