Tree Crown Reduction Westergate
By pruning the branches to appropriate lateral branches, tree crown reduction is a common tree surgery practice that reduces the spread or height of a tree’s crown. Tree crown reduction can offer several advantages such as improving the tree’s fit with its environment, enhancing the light penetration to the garden, lowering any mechanical strain on the tree or individual branches, avoiding the tree from touching power lines or structures, and decreasing the tree’s risk of being toppled by strong winds. However, tree crown reduction can also pose some hazards such as harming the tree’s appearance and health, producing large wounds that may rot or get infected, triggering excessive sprouting of feeble shoots, and diminishing the tree’s worth for wildlife.
How often crown reduction in Westergate, West Sussex?
The tree species, growth rate, and growing conditions determine how often crown reduction is needed. Usually, you can do crown reduction bi-annually or annually on trees that grow fast and have dense foliage to maintain the tree at the preferred size. Crown reduction pruning should avoid removing more than 20-25% of a tree’s foliage and branches, particularly for very old trees or trees that are weak or deteriorating. This is crucial, as pruning encourages new growth and that growth should match the tree’s energy reserves and vigour.
