Tree Crown Thinning Grays

At T.H. Tree Services we have over our many years of trading developed an outstanding level of expertise across all areas of tree surgery, including tree crown thinning. Grays wide this is one of our most requested services, in particular for those who want to to maintain the height and beauty of their tree whilst promoting its health.

Tree Crown Thinning: The Benefits Explained

When you thin the crown of a tree, it boosts light and air flow through the branches. It also improves visibility, making it less of a challenge to spot signs of disease or decay or to detect any hazardous branches that may be about to fall. Good light and air flow within a tree is essential to maintain its health and strength. Crown thinning also helps to balance out the tree, making it appear more attractive, and will also allow wind to pass through, making it less likely for the tree to sustain damage during storms.

How can I tell if I need Tree Crown Thinning?

If your tree’s canopy has become particularly bushy and dense and you can no longer see through it then it is likely it will benefit from crown thinning. If you are unsure you can ask us to visit and assess the tree and we will give you our expert opinion.

Tree Crown Thinning Grays: All Trees Covered

Our Grays tree crown thinning service spans an extensive array of tree species and sizes including all trees commonly found across Britain.

Your trees may be located on public land, in a domestic garden, on commercial premises or somewhere hazardous such as next to a body of water or near to overhead cables. This however will never pose an issue for the specialists at T.H. Tree Services who possess the knowhow, expertise and experience required to handle everything safely.

Our knowledge of the correct timing and processes required for tree crown thinning Grays wide means you can have total peace of mind that your tree will remain healthy and aesthetically pleasing.

Listed below is a selection 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 often reach heights of 40 metres and grow extensive and bushy canopies. Not a problem though for our experts who have been carrying out oak tree crown thinning for more than 15 years.
  • Willow – including the weeping willow and the crack willow and all willows that reside by lakes, rivers or ponds: their preferred habitat. Willow trees are known for their beautiful long, cascading branches.
  • Ash – the ash tree will often reach 35 metres in height, which is quite substantial. No problem though for the expert tree surgeons at T.H. Tree Services. Whilst we work on the tree, we will use our knowledge to look out for ash dieback, a common and often deadly disease affecting ash trees in Britain. We will of course advise you should we find any signs of this disease and if we do, we will provide you with a plan of action.
  • Fruit trees – including pear, plum, cherry and apple. It is helpful for fruit trees to be regularly pruned by a professional. It helps them develop a robust branch structure so that they can support their heavy fruit crops. Some light crown thinning for taller, bushier fruit trees may be appropriate and we will confirm once we assess your tree.
  • Conifers and pines – such as yew, cedar and Leyland cypress. Conifers and pines are renowned for reaching soaring heights of up to 100 metres. Nevertheless, our experience, knowledge and specialist state-of-the-art equipment all mean crown thinning of these species poses no issue for T.H. Tree Services.
  • Eucalyptus trees – including the cider gum tree, particularly prevalent along the Essex coastline. These trees are known to grow to heights of 30 metres but our experience working at height will make the whole job safe and effective.
  • Beech trees – the canopy of the beech tree will often grow tall and wide. If your beech tree has grown to 30 or 40 metres, which is not unknown at all, we can take care of thinning its crown to reduce its density. Regular pruning is good for the beech tree as it assists with leaf retention throughout the year; beneficial for beeches used as privacy screening.
  • Other deciduous and evergreen trees – we regularly carry out tree crown thinning Grays wide for silver birch trees, hornbeam trees, elder trees, lime trees, elm trees, maple trees, sycamore trees, rowan trees, elm trees, whitebeam trees, spindle trees and aspen trees. Whatever tree you have that needs its crown thinning, we can take handle it.

Common diseases affecting trees in Grays

When we carry out tree crown thinning Grays homeowners, landlords and land managers like the fact that we know how to assess the tree for disease or decay. This is important because in doing so, we are able to detect potential weakness that could lead to major problems in the future.

Some species of trees are more prone to disease, fungi and pest infestations than others. Some of the more common tree diseases such as ash dieback, chestnut blight, Dutch elm disease and oak decline are widely publicised, however there are sadly so many more problems affecting our precious UK trees.

An important part of our service is identifying and dealing with diseases, fungi and pest infestations. If you are worried that your tree may be diseased or may be infested with pests, our guide to common tree diseases and pests should prove useful to you. If you are particularly concerned about your tree, please never hold back in contacting us for personalised advice. Early intervention can make all the difference.

The best time for tree crown thinning Grays?

There are certain times of year when tree crown thinning should be circumvented.

Bird Nesting Season: During February to August when birds are nesting, it is not permissible to carry out any sort of tree work unless it is a viable emergency.

Active Growing Season: Trees are usually in their active growing season between late spring and early winter. During this time it is highly advisable not to make any cuts to the tree because it will bleed sap which will in turn attract bugs which bring with them disease. Any work that is required urgently can of course go ahead as long as it is absolutely necessary and required to maintain the health and / or safety of the tree.

Do be aware that some tree species enter the active growing 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 tailored advice.

You will also need to consult 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 thinning allowed will be limited and you will require permission from your local authority to proceed which usually takes up to eight weeks to be granted.
