What Is Canopy Elevation?

Canopy elevation, often referred to as "raising the canopy," is a tree care practice that involves the removal of the lowest limbs of a mature tree. This process effectively increases the distance between the ground and the point at which the tree limbs begin to branch out from the main trunk. Think of it as creating more "headroom" beneath the tree.

Why Choose Canopy Elevation?

Improved Accessibility: Elevating the tree makes the area beneath it easier to mow and walk under, enhancing the functionality of your outdoor space.

What Is Canopy Thinning?

Canopy thinning, on the other hand, is a technique that allows for more sunlight to filter through densely packed tree canopies. It involves selectively removing some branches to reduce the overall density of the tree's foliage. This practice can benefit your outdoor space by improving sunlight to the yard area under the tree and reducing the windshear forces applied against it as well.

Why Choose Our Tree Thinning?

Increased Sunlight: By thinning the canopy, we can often enable more sunlight to reach the ground, benefiting your plants and creating a more inviting atmosphere in your outdoor area.

Enhanced Ventilation: Canopy thinning improves the flow of air through the tree's branches, which can contribute to the overall health and stability of the tree.
