Crown Thinning

Crown thinning is often used to improve the form of a tree, to allow more light to pass through, reduce wind resistance or to lessen the weight of heavy branches. Crown thinning is the removal of secondary and small live branches to give an evenly spaced structure with a uniform spread of foliage. The technique is usually confined to broad-leaved species. Crown thinning does not alter the overall size or shape of the tree.
