Crown Lift

What is Crown Lifting?

Crown lifting is a specialised technique within tree maintenance that requires a number of lower branches and foliage to be removed from a tree to create space between the ground and the lower parts of the crown. This method serves several purposes beyond mere aesthetics.

The primary goal of crown lifting is to enhance the visibility and accessibility beneath the tree. By elevating the canopy, this practice creates a better movement path for pedestrians, vehicles below the canopy as well as above and around structures. Moreover, it facilitates improved light infiltration to the surrounding environment, benefiting both the tree itself and the flora beneath it.

Our Approach

Our devoted team of professional tree surgeons in Stockport holds a strong commitment to employing a detailed and thought out approach in crown lifting, prioritising the health and well-being of the tree above all else.

At each stage of the process, an in depth evaluation is conducted, encompassing vital factors such as the tree’s overall health, unique species and characteristics, intricate growth patterns, and potential impact on structural stability. Only after a thorough assessment and thoughtful consideration of these elements do we proceed with any pruning, ensuring the tree’s sustained optimal condition.

Utilising precise pruning techniques and strictly adhering to a consistent maintenance schedule are essential elements in preserving the tree’s ongoing health and structural integrity during the crown lifting process.

Attention to detail plays a crucial role not only in safeguarding the tree’s overall well-being but also in realising the desired functional improvements and aesthetic enhancements sought through this process. This meticulous approach ensures the tree’s lasting vitality and visual appeal.

Crown Lift Advice

With adequate training and experience, conducting crown lifting tree surgery is a relatively quick and straightforward task.

Enhancing light penetration in and around the tree’s base is ideal for allowing additional late afternoon or evening sunlight to reach the area.

Nick and his friendly team took down a selection of trees that were growing right up against our house. The whole process, from the initial site visit to the removal was very professional and we are delighted with the result. The team was respectful of our garden and they took great care to leave our garden very tidy.
