Oak Tree Pruning
Along with other large trees, old oaks may sometimes require oak tree crown reduction.
This procedure can easily damage a tree, so it should always be carried out by a qualified tree surgeon.
Horsham Tree Surgeons carefully consider the best pruning for your trees, both large and small, and will discuss this with you before getting started. We want you to be pleased with the results of our tree surgery.
Where a tree preservation order (TPO) has been placed on a tree, you must have permission from the council before starting any work, even removing overhanging branches. We can advise you.
Crown reduction is when we shorten all the branches to make the whole crown of the tree smaller. The procedure may be necessary for very old trees.
Some branches inside the crown are removed to allow more air to circulate and to let in more light. Crown thinning should not spoil the overall shape of the tree.
This procedure may be necessary when branches are threatening to damage buildings or overhang paths and roads. It involves removing some of the lower branches to literally lift the crown.
