The removal or shortening of branches to a suitable growth point to shape the crown into an aesthetically pleasing form. This process reshapes an unbalanced crown by reducing its height and/or spread. This process is also beneficial for future tree growth as it reduces the weight of the branches, limiting their likelihood of breakage.
Crown thinning is the process which reduces the density of a tree canopy to ensure an evenly-spaced branch structure that allows more light to pass through the tree and reduces wind resistance.This process does not reduce the overall size of the tree.
Crown lifting is the removal of the lowest branches to increase light beneath the canopy and/or to achieve a desired vertical clearance above ground level.
