FULL CROWN REDUCTIONS

Reducing the overall volume and size of a tree’s crown, while maintaining the natural shape of the tree– It may be that you would like to keep your tree but you want more light in your garden, or you feel uncomfortable with the tree’s size given its proximity to your property. Typically we use a technique called drop crotching. This is where the arborist in the tree prunes to the most suitable growth removing the weaker leaders to produce both a natural and balanced crown. Don’t be fooled in to heavy reductions by other tree companies. This is a bad form of tree management, and doesn’t benefit the tree or you! Typically heavy pruning will produce heavy re-growth costing you as a homeowner more in the long term and stressing the tree, making it more susceptible to disease and or die back.
