Expert Tree Crown Thinning Tilbury

Why do we carry out tree crown thinning? The benefits of this pruning method are that it helps to enhance air flow and light penetration through a tree’s branches which strengthens the tree and helps it stay healthy. A thinned out crown makes it easier to see whether there is any decay or disease within a tree, and hazardous branches are easier to spot.

  • Willow – including the weeping willow, crack willow and white willow. We are experts in working on willow trees that are growing on watersides, which is often the case with this species of tree.
  • Ash – our ash tree crown thinning service includes looking for signs of ash dieback, a prevalent and occasionally fatal disease affecting British ash trees. If we spot symptoms of ash dieback we will take the appropriate action which may include formulating a suitable treatment plan.
  • Fruit trees –pear, plum, cherry and apple trees benefit from regular pruning as it helps them form a strong branch structure which they need to support the heavy fruit crops they produce. Light crown thinning for taller, bushier fruit trees usually works well but our specialists will confirm the best course of action once they have surveyed the tree.
  • Conifers and pines – the likes of yew, cedar and Leyland cypress prove no issue for our team, even if they have grown to towering heights of 100 metres or more which is quite common for these particular species.
  • Eucalyptus – we can safely handle all types of eucalyptus tree, including the cider gum tree which is prevalent along the coastline of Essex.
  • Beech trees – regular beech tree pruning helps beech trees, particularly useful if your beech tree is used as privacy hedging.

When is the best time for tree crown thinning in Tilbury?

Tree crown thinning is best avoided during these periods:

The active growing season: This usually falls between late spring and early winter. Pruning a tree during this these times will usually result in it bleeding sap. This attracts bugs and disease. Any urgent work required to make a tree safe or treat disease can proceed, but only under expert management.

It is essential to bear in mind that the active growing seasons for the various species of trees do vary. Our news and tree ID pages provide useful guidance on the optimum time to prune your particular tree, or you can contact us for individual advice.

The bird nesting season: Between February and August birds will usually be nesting in most trees. It is therefore not permitted to carry out any sort of tree work, unless as before it is a genuine emergency. There are laws protecting nesting birds and it is always wise to check for nests in use outside of the official nesting season.

You will also need to speak to the local authority TPO register to find out whether your tree is protected by a Tree Preservation Order (TPO). If so then the volume of crown thinning allowed will be limited and permission will be needed from your local authority to go ahead with the work. This can take up to eight weeks to be granted.
