Full Crown Reduction

Enhance the natural beauty of your trees whilst maintaining a manageable size with our full crown reductions

Full Crown Reductions in Kent

Although trees can elevate the look of your home, your tree may be blocking the sunlight into your garden, or perhaps you feel uncomfortable with the tree’s size given its proximity to your property. If that is the case, our crown reductions could be the perfect solution for you. We systematically remove branches in the canopy, resulting in a smaller overall volume and tree size, whilst maintaining the tree’s natural shape.

With a highly qualified team and professional tools, our crown reductions can be done quickly and efficiently. We carry all of our waste home with us, meaning your property ends up exactly how we left it. To ensure we reduce the impact on our environment, we send all waste through a wood chipper, which then gets used as fertiliser on a nearby farm.

Our Crowning Technique

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 into 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, which could cost you more in the long term. Not only will over pruning result in expensive tree works in future, but it could make your tree more susceptible to disease.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    A tree crown reduction is the process of removing specific branches, both small and large, to improve the appearance (shape or size) of a tree. Some people crown their tree for aesthetic purposes, but it can also be done to reduce the risk of falling branches or damage to a property. Crowning a tree can also improve a tree's health and encourage growth of new leaves.
    Tree crowning can be a great way to encourage your tree’s growth and reduce stress on existing branches. When you prune a tree, you are allowing more light to reach the centre of your tree canopy, which is often why leaves in the centre are missing.
    The cost of crown reductions will vary depending on several factors. These include the location of the tree (how easy it is to access), the size of the tree and its crown, as well as the species. We offer free site visits and quotes for all of the services provided at Broadleaf Tree Surgery. By choosing our team, you can guarantee you won’t be overpaying for our bespoke services.
    Full crown reductions focus on reducing the tree's volume as a whole, whilst improving the look and shape of the crown. Tree crown thinning focuses on removing specific branches, often those that are at risk of falling off and causing damage. Crown thinning is also used to improve the health of the tree, rather than the aesthetics.

    For more about crown thinning, visit our crown thinning service page.
    You may need permission from the local authorities if your tree has a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) on it. However, as a professional company, and for your peace of mind, we perform local authority checks on each of our jobs before starting. We don’t charge to do the planning applications or paperwork required and can offer advice on the best course of action for protected trees.
