Crown Lift

What is Crown Lifting?

Crown lifting is a specialised technique within tree maintenance that involves selectively removing lower branches and foliage from a tree to create space between the ground and the lower parts of the crown. This method serves multiple purposes beyond mere aesthetics.

Enhancing visibility and accessibility beneath the tree are primary goals of crown lifting. By elevating the canopy, this practice allows better movement for pedestrians, vehicles, or 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 Manchester hold a steadfast commitment to employing an intricate approach in crown lifting, prioritising the enduring health and well-being of the tree above all else.

At each stage of the process, a meticulous evaluation is conducted, encompassing vital factors such as the tree’s overall health, unique species 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 adhering rigorously to a consistent maintenance schedule are indispensable components in upholding the tree’s ongoing health and structural soundness throughout the crown lifting process.

Attention to detail serves as a pivotal factor not only in safeguarding the tree’s overall well-being but also in achieving the envisioned functional improvements and aesthetic enhancements sought through this process, thereby ensuring its enduring vitality and visual allure.
