Crown reduction describes and overall or partial reduction in the height and/or spread of a tree. It involves the selective removal of branches to create a smaller crown that retains a healthy framework of branches able to produce leaf cover in the following growth seasons.  This is not the same as pollarding which is far more drastic and is not suitable for all trees. The nature of a reduction will depend on tree's species, size and structure, as well as the customer's requirements. We will work with the customer to develop a suitable plan based on the specific situation.
