Thinning a tree’s crown to increase light penetration and reduce leaf fall.


Crown thin: below are before and after photos of a roughly 50 feet (five story) tall sycamore whose crown we thinned out by about a third. This increased the amount of light penetrating the tree’s canopy and reaching the gardens and houses below, as well as reducing the amount of leaves falling down.
