Let us free up space and light with a simple crown lift
Is a tree blocking the light from your house or preventing access?
Luckily, trees don’t always need to be felled in order to stop them from being an obstruction.
A simple crown lift might be the solution to all of your problems.
What is Crown Lifting?
Crown lifting is the process of removing lower branches of trees so that the space underneath is of the desired amount. It’s a common method of keeping a good tree but making it fit in with the environment in a more practical way.
Crown Lifting Example
Examples of crown lifting situations:
- Making space in your garden. Crown lifting clears away those messy lower branches so you can put down a picnic table, a swing or just make your garden look much bigger.
- Enabling clear sight along roads and streets. Tree-lined streets are beautiful and very popular in the UK but these trees must be managed responsibly. When trees have lower branches, drivers’ vision may be compromised and crown lifting is an excellent way to retain clear vision while making the most of wonderful trees.
- Clearing paths, playgrounds and car parks. Overhanging branches can cause safety issues for pedestrians, playing children and to cars. Crown lifting keeps the lowest branches well away from people and cars below while still retaining the tree’s health and canopy, itself providing shade and shelter.
- Protecting buildings. Trees often have thick and powerful branches which can brush against or damage buildings. The answer doesn’t necessarily have to be removal of the tree and in many cases a crown lift will do the job perfectly.
When to get a Crown Lift
Crown lifting can usually be performed at any stage in the tree’s life, however, the best tree management is to help the tree grow into a practical shape from its youth. Early crown lifting means little or no scars on the tree and may prevent the tree from needing further crown lifting in the future.

Felled one tree, reduced the head on another, topped some tall conifers, tidied hedge.
“Great price – far lower than 2 other tree surgeons I got quotes from (I did query their price before accepting it). Arrived when they said they would, made sure of what I wanted doing and got on with the work safely. Second team came later to clear up. Will be using again and would recommend without hesitation.”
