Crown Reduction

Crown reduction reduces a tree’s crown while still maintaining its natural shape. This is different to ´topping´, which is not acceptable. We will not normally do crown reduction work because we favour removal and replanting with a more appropriate species instead, since this is a more cost effective, long term solution. However, crown reduction is often used where part of a tree touches, or is very close to, a building. We will only reduce part of the crown or specific branches in these circumstances. This technique is used for many reasons such as to reduce wind resistance, water up-take, to control the size of a tree in a restricted environment or to allow more light through.
