Tree Crown Reduction
The crown is made smaller without spoiling the shape of the tree. This is very skilled work and often involves a method of pruning called “drop-crotching”. Again it is done to reduce the weight in potentially dangerous trees, but can also be useful if trees are obstructing or damaging buildings or power lines.
What is crown reduction?
Crown reduction is one of the most common pruning techniques arborists use to control the size of the tree while maintaining the structure or shape of its crown. Arborists focus on limbs on the uppermost portion of the tree canopy, cutting them shorter to decrease the tree height. These branches, however, are only cut to a certain extent to ensure they heal fast and grow properly again to form the new crown.
As trees grow, it’s natural for some branches to die. If, however, you leave them on the tree, it can be dangerous for the tree, your property and your family. During a strong storm, dead branches can get tossed around by the wind and damage property or cause injury.
Crown reduction comes with various tree health benefits, including increased sunlight and fewer competing branches. In turn, fruit trees get healthier and may increase their fruit production the next year.
