Crown Reduction and Pruning
Tree crown reduction is the process of reducing the overall size of the crown by removing the ends of the branches. The crown thinning makes it even and leaves the tree with a balanced amount of leaves and a beautiful shape. The crown reduction pruning process includes crown cleaning, crown lifting, and removal of selective branches for increased light penetration and air circulation.
Enhanced air movement and light penetration stimulate and maintain interior foliage which helps in improvement of branch taper and strength. Pruning mature trees reduces the wind-sail effect of the crown and the weight of the massive limbs. The thinning process enhances the aesthetic beauty of the trunk and branches.
