So What is Crown Lifting & What are the Benefits?

Unlike crown thinning, which removes selective branches from the crown, a crown lift refers to the process of removing the lowest branches of the crown. This service does not alter the appearance of a tree, which helps you to retain the character of your garden and preserve the nature and wildlife around it.

There are a variety of reasons as to why you may need crown lifting in Northampton. The branches of your trees may obstruct a road or pathway or any other area where access is required. They may also prevent easy access within private homes, stopping owners from accessing their garages and their home. By investing in a crown lifting service, you will benefit from a clearer space which also helps to let more natural light pass through.

The Arboricultural Association states that the crown lift should be restricted to less than 15% of the crown height, leaving the crown at least two thirds of the total height of the trees.
