Tree Crown Lifting Explained

A lot of people ask us what tree crown lifting involves. Basically, we remove the lowest of the tree’s branches so that the height of the canopy is lifted. The overall height of the tree stays the same, it’s just now in the lower reaches of the tree, there is a good space for people to walk underneath safely. The process is also beneficial where trees are growing close to power lines, public highways or buildings. We can lift the crown so that the lower branches provide safe clearance.

Tree Crown Lifting Grays: All Species and Sizes of Trees Covered

Our Grays tree crown lifting service covers a wide variety of tree species and sizes including all trees commonly found in the UK.

Regardless of whether your tree or trees are situated on public land, in a residential garden, on commercial premises or somewhere hazardous like a railway line or lake or riverbank, the specialists at T.H. Tree Services have the knowhow and experience needed to take care of everything safely.

Our knowledge of when and how to carry out tree crown lifting Grays wide using the correct processes means you can have total peace of mind that your tree will remain healthy and attractive.

The following are just some of the trees we regularly work on across Grays and all surrounding areas:

  • Oak – all species such as English or common oak, sessile oak and holm oak. Oak trees can grow to heights of 40 metres with wide canopies. Nevertheless, we are able to offer effective tree crown lifting for this species of tree.
  • Willow – including willows situated adjacent to lakes, rivers or ponds, etc. Willow trees have long, cascading branches and it is sometimes advantageous to carefully lift the crown so that people can sit underneath them and enjoy the shade. Allowing light to penetrate the tree is beneficial and it also makes it easier to maintain the grounds beneath too.
  • Ash – the ash tree is known to grow to 35 metres in height. This however poses no problem for the specialist tree surgeons at T.H. Tree Services. We will be on the lookout for the common disease ash dieback when undertaking crown lifting and will advise you should we find any issues. If we do, we’ll be able to deal with them for you should you wish.
  • Fruit trees – including pear, plum, cherry and apple. It is important for fruit trees to undergo regular, professional pruning as they need to develop a robust branch structure so that they can support their heavy fruit crops. Some light crown lifting may be in order but we will confirm once we see your tree.
  • Conifers and pines – including yew, cedar and Leyland cypress. Conifers and pines are renowned for growing to towering heights of up to 100 metres. As always, courtesy of our experience, knowledge and specialist equipment, this poses no problem for T.H. Tree Services when carrying out tree crown lifting Grays wide.
  • Thorny or spiky trees – including the monkey puzzle tree. You will fairly regularly find that tree care companies will avoid crown lifting for trees that pose a natural hazard. That’s not us though. Whatever tree you have in Grays, if its crown needs lifting, we’ll get right in there and get on with it.
  • Eucalyptus trees – including the tallest which can grow to 30 metres in height. The cider gum tree is one of the most common species of eucalyptus that we’ll deal with as it is found in large numbers along the Essex coast and has also made its way inland.
  • Beech trees – including those with significant sized canopies. If your beech tree has grown to a soaring height of 30 or 40 metres, we can take care of lifting its crown. Regular pruning is beneficial for the beech tree. Pruning helps with leaf retention year-round, which is particularly advantageous if you use it for privacy screening.
  • Other deciduous and evergreen trees – including silver birch trees, hornbeam trees, lime trees, maple trees, sycamore trees, rowan trees, elm trees, whitebeam trees, spindle trees and aspen trees. Whatever tree you have that needs its crown lifting, we can take care of it.

If you need to identify a tree on your land, our extensive Tree ID pages should prove helpful to you.

Common diseases affecting trees in Grays

When we undertake tree crown lifting Grays home and landowners appreciate the fact that we have the knowledge to check the tree for any signs of disease or decay. This is important as there could be resulting weakness of the branches and the tree’s health could be suffering.

Some species of trees are more susceptible to disease, fungi and pest infestations than others. You have probably learnt of some of the most common tree diseases like ash dieback, chestnut blight, Dutch elm disease and oak decline. The trouble is, there are so many more issues trees can face.

A vital element of our service is identifying and dealing with diseases, fungi and pest infestations. If you are concerned that your tree may be suffering from disease or may have a pest infestation, our guide to common tree diseases and pests should prove helpful. If you have any particular worries, please never delay in contacting us for individual advice.

A guide to getting the timing right with tree crown lifting in Grays

There are particular times of year when tree crown lifting should be avoided.

Firstly, no tree should be pruned during the bird nesting season which runs from February to August. We will always check for nesting birds outside of this time to be on the safe side. This rule applies to non-emergency tree work only. If there are hazardous branches posing a risk, or the tree needs urgent attention to deal with disease or infestation, then we can proceed.

Secondly, it is not wise to undertake tree crown lifting whilst the tree is actively growing, which in most cases is late spring to early winter. This is because during the active growing season, trees bleed sap when cut. Sap attracts all sorts of bugs which flock to the tree bearing all sorts of diseases.

Again, it is possible to undertake emergency tree work at any time, however where possible it is always best to refrain until the tree enters its dormant phase. It is worth being aware that some tree species do enter the dormant phase at different times. Take a look at our news and tree ID pages for guidance on the best time to prune your particular tree, or contact us for bespoke advice.

You will also need to check the local authority TPO register if your tree is of notable interest. If it is protected by a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) then the amount of crown lifting permitted will be restricted and you will need permission from your local authority to go ahead. This can take up to eight weeks to come through.
