What is Crown Reduction?
Tree crown reduction is the removal of the branch tips, pruning back to a growth point further down the branch.
Why Consider Crown Reduction?
This may be carried out to remove dead, diseased and damaged branches, or simply to reduce the overall crown size of the tree.
Crown reduction alleviates biomechanical stress by reducing both the leverage and the sail area of the tree, and can allow retention of a tree in a confined space. It can also be used to create a desired appearance or to make the tree more suited to its surroundings.
A true Crown Reduction retains the main framework of the crown and therefore a high proportion of the foliage-bearing structure, this being important for the vitality of the tree. Crown Reductions are usually specified as a percentage and should not exceed 30%.
