You may already have some idea of what needs to be done however it helps to have in mind a clear description of the different ways to tend to a tree including preserving the life of a tree, strengthening the tree’s defences in harsh weather and improving overall tree health.
It can be possible to extend a tree’s lifespan with a combination of crown reduction and thinning. The process also serves to keep a tree in place that may otherwise outgrow its position. We often use this for older trees to improve stability and longevity.
Crown thinning can help the tree to manage strong winds and allow air to move freely through it. It also allows more light to enter the tree, aiding healthy growth.
This is possibly the best way to enhance accessibility around a tree or reduce over-bearing visibility of it without having to remove the tree altogether.
Dead-wooding tree surgery
As the name suggests, dead-wooding is the removal of all dead, diseased, or damaged branches. Arranging this when needed can really improve the overall health of the tree.
