Dead Wooding & Crown Thinning
What is Dead Wooding?
Dead wooding is the process of removing dead or dying branches to encourage new growth in the tree. These branches can become dangerous if they are left on the tree, as during high winds and storms they could fall, so it is important to get them removed as soon as possible. Dead wooding also promotes healthy growth in the tree as it stops the spread of disease and fungus, which if left untreated, could damage the tree beyond repair. The appearance of the tree will also be improved through dead wooding, and more light and air will be able to pass through the branches, making the tree more stable in high winds.
