What is Crown Thinning?
Tree Crown Thinning is the removal of a portion of smaller/tertiary branches, usually at the outer crown, to produce a uniform density of foliage around an evenly spaced branch structure.
It is usually confined to broad-leaved species. Crown thinning does not alter the overall size or shape of the tree. The percentage of the leaf-bearing twig structure to be removed in crown thinning should be kept to the minimum required to achieve the objective and in any case should not exceed 30%.
