Crown thinning involves removing a number of secondary branches in such a way that it produces a balanced crown structure, without altering the overall size or shape of the tree. It results in improved light levels passing through the canopy thus reducing shading. It reduces the sail effect of the crown and also reduces the wind loading upon the limbs of the tree. The removal of weak, crossing or duplicated branches.
