Deadwood (Crown Cleaning)

At Arbortec we advise that Deadwood or Crown Cleaning should only be carried out if the tree or trees are in a position where branches may cause injury or damage to a person or obstacle when shed by the tree.  Non-living branches or stems due to natural ageing or external influences. Deadwood provides essential habitats and its management should aim to leave as much as possible, shortening or removing only those that pose a risk. Durability and retention or deadwood will vary by tree species.
