Crown; Cleaning, Lifting and 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.

Crown reduction is a safe and healthy pruning method that shortens the height of a tree or branches by only cutting select limbs to the next lateral growth as small as possible to maintain the tree's frame. This helps promote faster healing and correct regrowth.
