Tree Crown Thinning Thurrock

If you wish to keep your tree looking attractive, and also to keep it nice and healthy, tree crown thinning will help a great deal.

Thinning the crown of a tree helps to boost light and air flow through the branches. It also enhances visibility within the tree which makes it easier to detect disease or decay and to spot any dangerous branches that could pose a risk of falling.

Good light and air flow within a tree is vital to maintain its health and strength. Crown thinning also helps to balance out the tree and lets the wind pass through which helps to prevent damage during storms.

When is the best time for tree crown thinning Thurrock?

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

The active growing season: Trees are usually in their active growing period between late spring and early winter. Making cuts into a tree during this time is not advisable. This is because the tree will bleed sap which attracts bugs and disease. Any work that is required to make the tree safe or treat a disease or infestation can go ahead at any time.

Some tree species have variable growing seasons. Our news and tree ID pages offer in-depth guidance on the optimum time to prune your particular tree, or you can contact us for individual advice.

The bird nesting season: During the period running from February to August birds are generally nesting in trees. It is therefore not allowable to undertake any sort of tree work, again unless it is a genuine emergency.

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 restricted, plus permission for the work will be required from your local authority. This can take up to eight weeks to be granted.
