Crown reduction of lime in Whalley Range

A crown reduction and crown lift was required on this large lime tree in Whalley Range to allow more light into the garden.  A large portion of the back garden was suffering from lack of light due to the big lime tree canopy casting a lot of shade.  Seth climbed the tree and reduced its crown by approximately 30%.  He lifted the canopy slightly by removing a few of the lower branches and the epicormic growth on the trunk.  This allowed the afternoon sun to penetrate the garden between the crown and the top of the hedge (which we also reduced slightly).
