Crown Thinning/Tree Lacing to Improve Your Tree's Overall Health, Safety, and Beauty

Crown thinning (also known as tree lacing) is the process of removing excess branches from a tree's foliage in order to reduce the overall density of the tree. If the foliage of a tree becomes too thick, the tree can become top heavy and more susceptible to toppling over in a storm or when there are high winds. All Access Tree Care has the training and experience to properly thin your tree's crown in order to allow wind and rain to pass through more easily. Crown thinning also opens up your tree to let more light pass through, increasing its overall visual appeal.

Fantastic Job Cleaning Up Our Palm Trees

Mike and his crew did a fantastic job cleaning up our palm trees, pruning our Catalpas and radically thinning and lightening up our very tall Eucalyptus trees. Mike was responsive, communicative, professional and prompt. He offered professional input and listened to what we wanted to have done. The quote was fair and the crew was courteous and knew what they were doing. Mike truly wanted us to be happy and we are! It was a positive experience from start to end and we will definitely ask All Access to help us with our next job(s)! Thank you!

Mike and his crew did a great job thinning the 30+ year old carrotwood tree in our front yard. His crew also thinned the huge ficus in the Blessed Sacrament Church -school parking lot (El Cajon Blvd /56th St.) They were prompt, knowledgeable and thorough when cleaning up after both jobs. I highly recommend All Access Tree Care for home and business.

Mike and his team were exceptional. Our tree looks healthy without being over thinned. Highly recommend.

Crown Raising & Reduction to Manage the Size & Reach of Your Trees

If your tree's foliage has grown too close to the ground, making it difficult for pedestrians or vehicles to pass or fit underneath, it may be time to consider raising your tree's crown. Crown raising, despite what the term might imply, doesn't change the height of the tree, but "raises" the tree's crown by trimming off the lower portion, thus opening the space underneath. This can be especially important along busy streets and walkways where an overgrown tree can quickly become not only an inconvenience, but also a safety hazard. Crown reduction, on the other hand, reduces the overall size of the tree by trimming the outer portion of the foliage. This is ideal for preventing trees with large crowns from becoming too top heavy and to keep the branches from reaching nearby power lines or buildings.
