Crown Lifting is the removal of lower branches on a tree, one of the reasons Crown lifting is completed is to increase the clearance between the ground level and the lower branches. This may be needed depending on individual circumstances to allow access below the tree, to clear sight lines, improve views or allow light through the tree.
This type of tree maintenance does much less damage to a tree than reducing the canopy size and is done gradually over a period of years for the best results.
In some instances, you may be required by your Local Authority to offer an acceptable level of clearance to a specific height. This is to allow pedestrians or vehicles access to pass under the tree in public areas. We have worked with several Local Authorities and can deliver the necessary Crown Lifting service.
