There are several correct ways to properly thinning your tree. One of the most efficient is simply to raise the canopy by cutting the new sprouts that grow at the main base towards the bottom. This keeps the tree balanced out if proper pruning tactics have been used in the past. Raising the canopy is normally a cost-efficient way to maintain an overall good appearance and great overall health. If anything needs to occur up the canopy or throughout the canopy leading to the crown it should be done with only removing less than 10% of the overall tree mass at any one given time.
