Crown Reduction - Service Overview
Crown reduction is a reduction in the height or spread of the crown of the tree and can be used to alleviate mechanical stress on selected limbs or the entire crown. At the conclusion of a crown reduction, the framework of the crown should still be intact, together with the majority of the leaf bearing limbs. Crown reduction should not be applied to limbs greater than 100mm in diameter, unless there is a good cause. The planned reduction should be measured in acute metric measurements, stating amount in length to be removed and amount to be retained.
