Tree Crown Lifting

Crown Lifting is the process of removing lower limbs of the tree to allow sunlight to filter beneath and maintain a legal safe height over footpaths and roads (see HERE for legal info).

Crown lifting is a great way of utilising space beneath trees in small gardens and also to maintain a balanced crown. Crown lifting is generally carried out when lower limbs of trees are causing an obstruction to footpaths and roads and in a lot of cases to allow more light to pass beneath the tree. It helps to balance out the crown and make it more aesthetically pleasing.

Important Information:

The Highways Act 1980 requires that trees and other vegetation do not obstruct the passage of users. The Highways Authority requires a minimum clearance over any part of a footpath of 2.4 metres and over any part of a road of 5.2 metres. The Highway Authority has the power to enforce these clearances.
