Tree Crown Lifting in Suffolk, Ipswich and Woodbridge


Welcome to Elite Trees

Are you looking for someone to carry out crown lifting on one or more trees on your property? Then you have come to the right place. We are Elite Trees, and we work with both home and business owners.

What is tree crown lifting?

First of all, what is a crown lift for trees? It is the technique of removing lower branches on a mature tree. This lifts the canopy, otherwise known as the crown, of the tree. It has been proven to improve the health of a tree and prolong its lifespan, so it’s not just a cosmetic job. It’s one of the most popular kinds of tree surgery that we offer, and we perform it on all kinds of trees. We can do this quickly, and at some of the most competitive rates you’ll find.

Benefits of crown lifting

There are a number of benefits to a tree crown lift, and we have seen it make a huge difference in a wide range of outdoor spaces. When you arrange a crown lift, you can look forward to the following:

  • It creates a higher tree canopy, allowing you to make the most of the available space in your garden – freeing up room for shrubs and flowerbeds, as well as making it easier to get around without low-hanging branches in the way.
  • Keeps the branches away from passing traffic, improving safety outcomes on roads and driveways. It will also help to reduce the amount of falling leaves, which can become slippery, during the autumn and winter months – further boosting safety levels.
  • Keeps the branches away from buildings. Tree branches that are too close to a property can lead to mould, clog up gutters, and present a big safety risk during a storm. We always recommend that tree branches are kept 3-6 metres away from a property.
  • Opens up views that were blocked by the tree’s branches. Having a great view doesn’t just make your home a wonderful place to live, but can also boost its value. So, if a tree crown is getting in the way of your beautiful vista, a simple lift could be the ideal solution.
  • Crown lifting can also boost the amount of natural light in a property. Reducing the lower part of the tree crown can let so much more light into the lower levels of a home – which not only makes the space feel brighter and airier, but means you won’t have to switch the lights on as often!

The tree surgeons have just left and we are thrilled with the results. They were both very professional and respectful and we appreciated their caution at this time. We would certainly recommend Elite to others and were pleased that we found you on Which Trusted Traders.

Peter Rodwell - Customer

Elite carried out both fencing and tree work for us. The fencing work consisted of approximately 50 metres of new fencing and the removal of a 15m high Holly tree along with stump grinding ready for fresh planting during the spring. Really happy with the final result the team were friendly and made sure everything was left tidy afterwards. Work was competitively priced and clearly a professional business.

Elite Trees replaced my rear fence for me. They were very efficient and friendly from the quoting stage all the way through to finishing the job. Fence looks great and I would not hesitate in recommending them.

I would like to commend the team that did the work last Tuesday in absolutely ghastly weather, they were so diligent and carried out all the work efficiently and expertly. My wife has written a glowing reference on the local Suffolk business social media. We will definitely use Elite Trees again next time we need some tree work carried out.
