    Tree Surgeons - Crown Thinning

    Crown thinning is the process of removing selected branches from the crown of the tree to improve the balance and structure of the tree, usually these are dead, weak, overlapping or duplicated branches. Crown thinning lets more light through makes the tree appear less dense, without changing the overall size or shape of the tree. Crown thinning is generally confined to deciduous broad leaf trees and helps to reduce damage that could result from strong winds. Crown thinning reduces weight on heavy limbs and helps retain the tree's natural shape. Often when discussing crown thinning, the volume of the branches to be removed will be expressed as a percentage of the whole crown.

    Tree Surgeon Crown Thinning

    When hiring a tree surgeon for crown thinning it can be hard to tell if they are competent and safe without doing some research. Qualified and experienced tree surgeons will think safety first as working on trees can be dangerous. A tree surgeon does more than thin a tree, there use a variety of techniques to make a tree safe first. Tree surgeons can safely remove carefully chosen branches from the crown of the tree to give more light and make the tree safer from high winds.

    Hiring the services of a tree surgeon helps the health of your tree and protects from injury and liability. Home owners need to ask themselves when considering which tree surgeon to hire if the tree surgeon is adequately insured. Tree surgery businesses or self-employed tree surgeons should be insured for at least £5million which is the accepted level of liability in the industry. Customers should always ask to see a copy of their current certificate for public liability and employers liability, as failure to make adequate checks could see you held personally liable for any damage or injuries.

    Tree surgery is extremely dangerous due to the heights involved and the machinery used. This is another reason why home owners should leave it to the experts. Professional tree surgeons will adhere to strict regulations with regards to health and safety, use warning signs and cones to maximise safety and liaise with the local authority if disruption is likely to be caused to passing traffic. Tree surgeons should have various tree surgery qualifications including the National Proficiency Test Council certificates of competence which cover chainsaw operations, tree climbing and aerial rescue.
