Syracuse Tree Crown Reduction
Tree Crown Reduction in Syracuse NY
A crown reduction simply means that you are reducing the height and/or spread of the crown of a tree. A crown reduction may be applied for various reasons. Perhaps the tree sticks out into the road or rubs the side of your home. Some trees undergo crown reduction to allow more light to enter a garden or just to help to make the tree more suitable for its immediate surroundings.
Crown Reduction reduces the overall volume and visible size of a tree’s foliage, all while ensuring that the tree keeps its natural balance and shape. Keep in mind that not all species of trees are suitable for this type of treatment. Also, crown reduction should never be confused with or compared to ‘topping’, a harmful trimming treatment for trees.
Syracuse Tree Service and Crown Raising
Crown Raising, or Crown Lifting, involves the removal or the preparation for removal of the lowest branches on a tree. This removal can be for a number of reasons such as providing clearance for sidewalks, buildings, vehicles and pedestrians. Crown Raising can also be done to help keep the tree looking healthy and natural.
Removal of large branches directly from the trunk should not be included during a crown raising treatment as this can cause the tree to begin to decay and lead to further long-term problems or short-term biomechanical instability.
It’s recommended that crown raising on older, mature trees should be avoided or that only the secondary branches be removed, or primary branches be shortened (wherever possible) instead of removing branches completely from the tree.
Crown Thinning Tree Service in Syracuse NY
Instead of effecting the overall size of the tree, crown thinning sticks to the removal or certain branches within the crown instead of removing branches from the crown itself. The removed branches are often already dead, have been rubbing against each other, have split or are defective in some way.
Not only is this a great way to help to maintain the health of the tree, but it also allows more light to pass through to the ground and helps to increase the airflow within the canopy itself. Crown thinning simply helps to reduce the appearance of a cluttered or overly thick canopy.
