Thinning a tree’s canopy

Here we show one type of pruning: thinning out a tree’s canopy, in this case a sycamore, in order to allow more light to reach the gardens below. Another benefit is that the canopy will provide less wind resistance and the tree is therefore less likely to break and/or blow over. The tree was about two stories tall and in someone’s back garden. We had to take all the cuttings through the house. The whole thing was done in a morning.
