Tree Crown Reduction

When a outgrows its permitted space, a method of pruning called crown reduction is used to return the tree to a size where it will continue to be healthy and attractive. This method, is preferred over topping because it results in a more natural appearance, increases the time before pruning is needed again and minimizes stress to the tree.

Crown reduction pruning should only be used as a method of last resort as an alternative to removing and replacing the tree with a species that will not outgrow space requirements. One drawback to this method is that the pruning wounds can be subject to decay, which if left untreated, can result in irreversible damage to the tree.
