Crown Cleaning your tree
Trees grow erratically at times and often need a helping hand. This technique gives trees a strong framework for future growth.
The formation of deadwood is common due to disease or branches becoming redundant to the tree’s needs and it often needs to be carefully pruned out. As a tree grows it often develops into a less than desirable or dangerous shape. There are often structurally weak parts within a tree. One of the main causes of failure in branches or limbs is the phenomenon of ‘included bark’. This is a tight union between two branches or limbs that has not managed to fuse together properly. The sooner these branches are identified and removed the better.
Branches which cross or rub should also be removed as this will prevent any bark damage or confused growth and will provide the tree with a good framework for future development.
