Frequently Asked Questions
What is tree crown thinning, and why is it done?
Tree crown thinning, often just called tree thinning, involves selectively removing certain branches from a tree’s canopy. It’s done to reduce the density of the branches, allowing more light and air to reach the leaves, which promotes healthier tree growth and reduces the risk of disease.
How often should I get my trees thinned?
The frequency of tree thinning varies based on the tree species and its environment. Typically, it’s recommended every 3 to 5 years, but we can provide a more specific schedule after assessing your trees.
Can tree thinning prevent damage in storms?
Yes, by removing excess branches, tree thinning reduces the wind resistance of a tree and the likelihood of damage in high winds or storms. It can help prevent branches from breaking off and causing damage.
Will tree thinning change the appearance of my tree?
Our goal with tree thinning is to maintain the natural shape of your tree. While it may look slightly less dense after thinning, it shouldn’t significantly alter its overall appearance.
Is tree cutting the same as tree thinning?
Tree cutting often refers to removing entire trees, while tree thinning is more about removing specific branches to improve the health and structure of the tree without cutting it down.
Do I need a professional for tree thinning, or can I do it myself?
While basic pruning can sometimes be a DIY task, tree thinning is best done by professionals. Improper thinning can harm the tree. Our trained arborists know exactly which branches to remove for the best health and aesthetic of your tree.
