Beech Tree reduced by Boyd in January 2012 (pictured July )
This is the reducing and reshaping of the trees canopy and results in a smaller tree. Some trees are more suitable for reductions than others and the timing of a reduction can be very important depending on the tree species. Our well trained team have years of experience and can best advise what is most suitable for each individual tree.
A protected Hornbeam and Silver Birch reduced April 2012
This tree above has had one half of its canopy reduced to get rid of the overhang. Even though it has had a heavy prune back the pruning is considerate of the trees needs. There are plenty of growing points left for the tree to use in recovery.

After Crown reduction
A crown reduction nearly always incorporates a crown lift as part of the reduction. This helps give the tree a balanced shape.
