Crown reduction is a service provided for trees that have become too large for their surroundings.
The crown consists of all the branches and foliage that diverge from the trunk of the tree. Sometimes the crown can become excessive. You may want to reduce this if it has grown outside of the available space (e.g. hanging branches over a fence, becoming too close to a power line). It might be that the crown is reduced for aesthetic purposes – this is known as vista pruning.
A large crown causes stress on the trunk as the weight may cause it to collapse. If this is the case, you can contact our specialists who have the right equipment and capability to selectively remove branches.
Note: This process should not be done without training, which is required in knowing how to shape the tree in order to maintain equilibrium. The shape is vital for the survival of the tree and lopping off the wrong sections of a tree if it has surpassed its height limit.
