A crown reduction is a common pruning technique used to control the size of a tree’s crown whilst maintaining its shape and structure. Our tree surgeons will cut back the limbs at the highest point of the tree’s canopy in order to reduce its height. We’ll use the best and most effective crown reduction techniques to improve the appearance and structure of your tree whilst limiting the stress placed upon it. When we first attend your site, we may suggest other methods that may be more suitable, such as crown thinning. Crown reduction is often a last resort due to the strain it places on the tree.
Since crown reduction can be stressful for trees, not all species can tolerate it well. Trees such as sycamore, poplar, ash, lime and willow are the best candidates for crown reductions as they are better at putting on regrowth. Species such as oak, beech and cherry can’t usually endure heavy reductions, often dying back if they’re pruned too hard.
Firstly, this technique can remove dead or diseased branches, helping not just protect the tree’s health but prevent damage to property or injury to people. A crown reduction can also dramatically improve the appearance of a tree, improving the aesthetic of your landscape.
By removing taller or haphazard limbs from the canopy, we can achieve a much more streamlined look. Another reason people opt for a crown reduction is that they want to let more light into their garden. Reducing the size of a tree’s canopy can allow more light to penetrate through the branches and into dark and damp areas.
