Crown-Density Reduction and Tree-Thinning Service in Denver

Thick, lush tree canopies are striking and can be enjoyable for landscaping. But a tree’s foliage can grow too dense. Tree-thinning and crown-density reduction services are designed to selectively address interior limbs, allowing light and air through to the rest of the tree.

The professional arborists at each individually owned and operated Monster Tree Service location in Denver are ready to evaluate trees with dense canopy cover and thin their branches as necessary to give you a more beautiful, healthy landscape.

Reducing the Crown Density of Trees Helps Them Flourish

Crown-thinning removes excess branches and foliage to help ensure the rest of the tree receives light and airflow. Without it, interior leaves may not receive adequate light and often die, threatening to fall on whatever’s below. Tree-thinning professionals selectively remove branches to help prevent future damage and promote healthy, managed growth.

How Thinning Your Tree Canopy Benefits Your Yard

Trees need maintenance to keep them at peak health. At Monster Tree Service, we know just how to thin your tree branches for the maximum benefit of the tree.

Our crown-density reduction offers several benefits:

  • Improved tree health. With more nutrients able to reach and spread throughout your tree, you can expect a holistic improvement from density reduction.
  • Increased longevity. Trees that are healthy all over tend to be less likely to fall over in a storm or die from a disease.
  • Enhanced aesthetics. Density reduction lowers the chances of dead branches and keeps leaves healthy.
  • Less weight-induced stress. Dense branches are heavy, and an extremely dense crown can put unnecessary stress on your tree. Less-stressed limbs develop to be more productive.
  • A safer yard. Dead branches fall more easily and could cause problems down the road, including property damage or injury.

  4. Expertly choose which branches to thin to protect your trees’ health.

When is Crown Density Reduction Necessary? 

Trees are majestic additions to our landscapes, but sometimes their growth can become overwhelming. Crown density reduction, also known as tree thinning, is a crucial service that addresses situations where a tree's dense foliage requires careful management. Here at Monster Tree Service, we recommend considering crown density reduction in the following scenarios:

Overgrown Trees with Excessive Foliage:

Mature trees can become excessively thick, blocking sunlight from reaching lower branches and hindering their growth. This can also create an unbalanced and visually heavy appearance. Crown density reduction allows sunlight to penetrate the canopy, promoting healthy growth throughout the tree.

Trees Posing a Risk to Structures or Power Lines:

Densely packed branches can become heavy and susceptible to breaking under strong winds or heavy snow. This poses a significant risk to nearby structures, power lines, and even people. Crown density reduction helps alleviate this risk by strategically removing branches that could potentially cause damage.

Trees Blocking Excessive Sunlight from Reaching Other Plants or Areas:

Densely foliaged trees can cast excessive shade, hindering the growth of other plants beneath them. Additionally, they can block sunlight from reaching patios, gardens, or even entire sections of your property. Crown density reduction allows for better light distribution, creating a more balanced and functional landscape.

If you notice any of the situations mentioned above, don't hesitate to contact Monster Tree Service of Southwest Denver for a professional assessment and discuss how crown density reduction can benefit your trees and your property.

The Value of Trusting Your Tree-Thinning to the Professionals

Tree-thinning is a job best left to professional arborists. Trees small and large (even those that may be reached from the ground) all benefit from crown-reduction services. Removing the wrong branch or damaging the tree in the process may leave your tree vulnerable to infection.

The professional arborists at Monster Tree Service in Denver are trained to skillfully prune and remove limbs without causing damage to your trees or your property. Our efficient thinning service offers needed maintenance to your trees.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is tree-crown thinning?

During crown-thinning, professional arborists remove select branches – and sometimes limbs – throughout the tree’s crown, allowing light, air, and sunlight to reach the tree's interior.

How often should I thin my tree canopy?

Most large trees need their canopies thinned about every three years. Trees should NOT be thinned yearly, as this can add stress and harm growth.

When you choose Monster Tree Service in Denver, a professional arborist will work with you to create the best crown-thinning routine for your trees. Your thinning schedule will depend on several factors, including your trees’ species, age, and health.

Why do tree branches die in one part of my tree when others flourish?

If only interior branches are dying, the most likely cause is a lack of airflow and sunlight. This is when your trees need thinning. If dying branches are more evenly distributed throughout the canopy or concentrated on one side or another, your tree may be suffering from disease or pests.

What is tree-crown reduction?

Tree-crown reduction removes a portion of a tree’s canopy by shortening branches to a certain

Our History

In 2008, Monster Tree Service began as a small tree service company providing arboricultural care to Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New Jersey. Our founder was committed to promoting the growth of healthy trees and giving homeowners unparalleled service while taking care of their yards and homes. As a result, when other tree service businesses struggled to find jobs, our company kept working through every season, growing and expanding like the trees we care for.

Customers love working with us because we’re honest. When we tell customers they do or don’t need a particular service, they know we mean it. Because we care about trees, we’ll always fight for ways to rehabilitate your tree rather than remove it. When we do recommend removal, it’s because we know it’s the only thing that’s safe for your home and family.
