Reductions or Tree Pruning, Tree maintenance Reducing stress and the overall size.
Crown reduction, is one of the most common tree surgery practices, and when done correctly can be very effective in managing and maintaining the tree. Crown reduction reduces the area of the crown as a whole (both laterally and vertically). Crown reductions may be used to reduce mechanical stress on individual branches or the whole tree. Reductions or tree pruning allows the tree to be more suited to its immediate environment, can increase light and reduce encroachment on an area or building.
The final result should retain the main framework of the crown, and a significant proportion of the leaf bearing structure. This will also leave a similar, although smaller outline. It is important that reductions are carried out correctly and by professionals as almost every branch is visited.
What are the benefits of correctly done reductions?
- Correct balance of the tree.
- Minimise the chance of structural failures.
- Increase the tree’s longevity.
- Improve its health.
