A crown reduction is one of the most common pruning techniques that we carry out here at Essex Tree Brothers. It is carried out to control the size of the tree whilst maintaining the crown’s structure or shape.
We’ll usually focus on the limbs at the top of the tree canopy, cutting them shorter to reduce the tree’s height. We only cut the branches to a certain extent so that they heal faster and regrow properly to form a new crown.
There are a number of reasons why you might require a tree crown reduction. These include:
A crown reduction is often performed to remove dead, damaged or diseased branches. Leaving them on the tree can be dangerous not just for the health of the tree but for your property and people walking near to the tree. In a storm, the wind can toss around the dead or damaged branches, potentially causing damage and injury.
Many property owners enlist crown reduction services in order to improve the appearance of a tree. Removing taller limbs or those growing haphazardly out of the canopy can help to achieve a more streamlined look, enhancing the overall design of the landscape.
A crown reduction reduces a tree’s height and width, letting more light enter your garden. Crown reduction helps to increase light penetration to the tree branches as well as any dark and damp areas, making a tree better suited to its environment.
A crown reduction allows you to reduce the size of a tree whilst maintaining its structural integrity and natural form. In comparison, tree topping involves cutting off the top of a tree to reduce its height. It is a technique not recommended by most tree care professionals. The reason for this is that the trunk becomes exposed, weakening the tree’s structure. A crown reduction is a better option in most cases.
