Crown Reduction

A crown reduction is done to reduce the height and spread of a tree.  This work should only be done when really needed.  Doing this work to a tree creates a lot of cut points and therefore wounds. Once this process is started, depending on the tree species, it will need doing again every 3 to 7 years.

Reasons for carrying out a reduction:

  • The tree is getting too big for where its surroundings i.e. It is growing to near to a building, blocking too much light into a garden or causing a nuisance to neighbour’s gardens.
  • To stem root growth and spread depending on the species.
  • This could reduce the weight of a large, very old tree showing signs of decline, therefore protecting it against major loss of limb.
