An application by our customer had been submitted and given the go ahead to reduce canopy up to 2 metres and lift crown up to 3 metres.

We successfully applied for a 5 metre lift on them. We took the lift to the horizon level still leaving the trees with shape. It looks tidier and gives the impression the garden is bigger. We applied …
