Professional Crown lifting services in hitchin
Crown lifting or “crown raising” is a skilled technique of increasing the clear space below the foliage of a tree, it involves the process of removing lower branches of trees so that space underneath is of the desired amount. It’s a common method of keeping a good tree but making it fit in with the environment in a more practical way.
This is often necessary for access purposes such as enabling clear sight along roads, making space in your garden, clearing pathways, playgrounds, and car parks. Overhanging branches can cause safety issues for drivers and pedestrians, luckily, trees don’t always need to be felled to stop them from being an obstruction. A simple crown lift might be the solution to all of your problems.
Crown lifting or “crown raising” can usually be performed at any stage in the tree’s life, however, the best tree management is to help the tree grow into a practical shape from its youth. Early crown lifting means little or no scars on the tree and may prevent the tree from needing further crown lifting in the future.
