Coronet pruning on campus

The Grounds and Gardens Team has undertaken some coronet pruning on a dead tree on campus.

What is coronet pruning?

The end result of coronet pruning, or crown pruning, can mimic a crown. It involves pruning trees to mimic the way that tears and fractured ends naturally occur on trunks and branches. A coronet cut is a type of natural fracture technique that is intended to mimic jagged edges characteristically seen on broken branches following storm damage or branch failure.

The tree has died but is still safe and will provide a habitat for a wealth of wildlife including birds and invertebrates.
