"Tree thinning involves the removal of the overly numerous smaller branches within the crown to reduce the density. The overall dimensions remain the same.

Dead wooding involves the removal of any dead branches only."

In answer to your question, no. Tree thinning is not technically the same as dead wooding, although, dead wooding will technically thin the density of the canopy. Dead wooding is simply removing any branches that have died from the tree, and this can be a suitable work to carry out for health and safety purposes and for the health of the tree in some cases. Tree thinning is the selective removal of branches within a canopy to reduce the density of the crown of the tree. Note: This does not change the overall shape of the tree’s canopy.

I hope this has answered your question."
