tree crown thinning
thinning opens the canopy of a tree, allows light penetration and helps restore the tree's natural shape
Crown Thinning involves the removal of secondary and small live branches from throughout the crown to a maximum of 25%. This will increase light levels and reduce wind resistance to leave the tree with an overall balanced branch structure, whilst retaining its original size and shape.

tree crown reduction
downsizing the spread & height of a tree by removing selected branches
Crown Reduction involves reducing the overall crown/canopy of the tree by selectively pruning the crown area, from the tips of the branches to suitable growth points. The extent of the reduction process will be determined by the species, location and overall structural integrity of the tree.

tree crown lifting
the process of thinning back lateral branches to increase ground clearance below a tree's canopy, allowing light and wind penetration.
treeteam.wales do this by either removing whole branches, or those parts that extend below the desired height, in order to allow access below the tree, clear sight lines, improve views or permit light and wind to penetrate to the ground. It is often done to help dry out waterlogged, shaded ground beneath a tree and does much less damage to the tree than reducing its overall canopy size.
Crown lifting is best done gradually over a period of two or three years.

protecting overhead power & telephone cables from excessive tree growth or diseased and storm damaged branches
Since the amendment of the ESQC regulations in 2006, managing trees and vegetation to minimise unplanned service interruptions, even in adverse weather conditions, became a statutory obligation of power distribution Companies.
However; where utility cables, including telephone and internet wires, cross onto private property, this responsibility passes to you, the landowner.
treeteam.wales' arborists are trained to work near power lines and will ensure that the minimum clearance distance is kept from overhead power lines. In urban settings across Pembrokeshire, this is approximately 10 feet or 3 metres.

your questions, answered!
the most frequently asked questions about tree pruning and cutting.
What treatment will let more light into my garden?
As a general rule, crown lifting will have this effect, but thinning heavy growth also allows light to pass through the foliage. We can advise you better when we call to survey!
How much do you charge for tree crowning or thinning?
Of course, the cost will depend upon your location within Pembrokeshire and how much work is necessary. To get an outline quote, try our FREE photo survey offer!
Will the tree life be preserved?
Yes, in almost all cases crowning and thinning preserves the life of the tree, encourages regrowth and prevents storm damage.
How much can you safely remove from a tree?
As a general rule you shouldn't remove any more than 33% from the height of a tree, but we will advise when we give you the free, no obligation, quotation.
How long will it take to regrow?
This depends largely on the variety of the tree. Hardwoods such as oak take many years to regrow, whilst sycamore or ash can grow up to a metre per year.
