Two Forms of Tree Crotches
There are two forms of tree crotches, or the point of connection between two or more tree limbs or tree trunks. Like their names indicate, the “Y” or “V” crotches are more pointed while “U” crotches are more rounded.
When a tree has too-narrow of a crotch angle, it reduces the branch or trunk’s ability to grow, creating a weak point in its structure. Not every narrow crotch is cause for concern but if you notice cracking or splitting, contact Woodchuck Tree Service for premier tree trimming, pruning, and removal.
