Crown Reduction

Crown Reduction refers to pruning work carried out over the entire parameters of a tree’s canopy. Reasons for this action are to help maintain good shape and retain large trees for the maximum amount of time without the need of full tree removal. Crown Reductions are a vital operation in the conservation of veteran trees, giving amenity value for as long as possible.

The quantity of removal is usually referred to in percentages, with 20% being the maximum for the entire canopy.
