Brashing is the removal of the lower branches of conifer trees usually up to a height of 2m. Not all trees are brashed, only those necessary to allow access for the inspection of the crop. We will combine brashing with pruning on trees that have potential to become prime quality timber by removing branches above the 2m mark. These tasks are carried out throughout the summer each year.
