crown reduction

Crown reduction is a standard procedure to reduce the height and spread of the crown of a tree by the removal of the ends of branches whilst to retain the natural shape of the tree species. Ideally the tree should be made about 15% to 20% reduction in size of canopy from a properly executed crown reduction.

  • We do tree crown reduction by reduce the canopy or crown size of the tree because of the cuts required. It involves reducing the overall crown area from the tips of the branches of the tree and shorten the branches that extend surrounding tree. The longest portion of the branches will be cut back to an existing to reduce the weight of potentially dangerous limbs.
Root System
  • When the root system of a large maturing tree has substantial decay making it potentially hazardous, crown reduction is a preferred method to minimize the hazardous.
Balance a misshapen tree
  • This type of pruning does less damage to a tree especially storm damage because it balances the misshapen tree and reduce the weight of the tree. It is best done gradually over a period of years.
Crown Lifting good for:
  • Maintain the over grown trees and the original shape of the tree
  • Prevent the tree obstructing and damaging property
  • Prevent the tree from interfering with overhead electrical wire and obstructing the building

Increasing the clear space
  • Crown Lifting is the technique of increasing the clear space below the foliage of a tree, when clearance is needed for pedestrian and vehicular access.
  • We do tree crown lifting to clear sight lines by removing the lower branches or the whole branches that may be causing an obstruction that extend below the desired clear heights. Example: Trees that obstructing a footpath, highway or a building.
Reduce Weight of a Tree
  • Crown lifting is a way to reduce weight from a tree and allow light to pass through the tree. This can be of major benefit to the surrounding environment and create environmentally friendly.
Less Damage
  • This type of pruning does much less damage to a tree than reducing the canopy size. It is best done gradually over a period of years.
Crown Lifting good for:
  • to provide clearance under the tree
  • make signs visible that were installed too far off the ground
  • keep the lower branches away from traffic and buildings

We doing crown thinning by removed the portion of smaller or tertiary branches from throughout the crown to thin the density within the tree crown. The branches that rub or cross another should be removed systematically within 30% overall of the tree to avoid producing “lion’s tails”. Lion’s tails can result in sun scalding, epicormic sprouting and weak branch structure and breakage.

In the long run, crown thinning can create and maintain a stable tree structure which prevents safety hazard such as low-growing branches and growth forms subject to danger near pathway or road.


Crown Lifting good for:
  • Creating more natural light on your property or garden without altering the overall shape and size of the tree
  • Reduce wind resistance and minimize storm damage of an otherwise structurally sound tree
  • Reduce weight of the tree and balanced branch structure to encourage natural re-growth
