Thinning improves durability.
When there are fewer branches in the crown of a tree, wind is able to pass through without as much restriction. This leads to less storm damage, if you live in an area susceptible to this. Not only are you protected from falling trees, a thinned tree will cause less stress on individual branches and the trunk of the tree. This is especially helpful when you have a professional able to select the specific branches where thinning would be beneficial in order to reduce that mechanical pressure. It helps during the winter, too, when snow and ice form on your branches and cause extra duress.
What’s the best way to thin?
Structural pruning is probably your best bet towards having a successfully thinned tree. This way, you can take away defects like cracks or cavities, which can lead to rotting and wildlife damage. Once you’ve thinned the tree of those defects, you can start to trim the tree aesthetically to produce the perfect shape. Your tree will be beautiful and safe.
Unfortunately, many people tend to overthin their trees. Overthinning can lead to structural damage and is usually conducted by amateurs who don’t understand how to thin. Branches are fragile–without that extra weight, they could break. Unaware customers will see piles of brush on the ground and assume the job is being done.
