Why We Undertake Dead Wooding and Tree Thinning

 

  • The main reason dead wooding is performed is the stability of the tree and safety. The dead wooding process speeds up the tree's natural abscission process. It also reduces unwanted weight and wind resistance and can help overall balance.

  • Branches die off for a number of reasons: Light deficiency, pest and

      disease damage and root structure damage. 

  • A dead branch will at some point decay back to the parent stem and fall off. This is normally a slow process but can be quickened by high winds or extreme temperature.

  • Situations that usually demand removal of deadwood is trees that overhang houses, gardens, outside living areas, carports, sheds etc.

 

  • Another reason for dead wooding is the look of the tree, a tree with a large amount of deadwood throughout the crown looks more aesthetically pleasing with the deadwood removed. 

 

The physical practice of dead wooding can be carried out most of the year though not when the tree is coming into leaf.
