Tree Crown Reduction

Tree Crown Reduction is one of the three ways of reducing the size of the tree. The other two being “Crown Thinning” and “Crown Lifting”. One of the biggest problems with tree work is an understanding of what each of the specialist terms means. It is important that before all work is undertaken that both client and supplier are in full agreement as to the final look.

What is Tree Crown Reduction?

Crown Reduction Definition: The reduction in height or spread of the tree crown (the foliage bearing portions) of a tree. Crown reduction can be used to reduce mechanical stress on individual branches or the whole tree, make the tree more suited to its surroundings or to reduce the effects of shade. The final result should maintain the framework of the tree crown.

Crown reduction may be used to achieve quite a few different results:

  • It can be used to reduce stress on individual branches or the whole tree. In parks or gardens where there is a risk to the general public, this is very important. In fact, the insurance company may insist on it.
  • It could just be aesthetics. Does the tree look good in its location or has it outgrown its own space?
  • As the tree grows it may cause more shade to be thrown than is desireable.
  • It should be borne in mind that not all species are suitable for this treatment. So professional advice should always be sought.
