From reducing overly long or heavy branches to form a new and smaller crown through to removing branches with significant defects, there’s nothing we can’t do.

The Importance of Crown Reduction Services

Trees are important for improving air quality, sequestering carbon, reducing stormwater runoff, and more. The older and larger a tree, the more effective it is at doing these things, which is why it should be protected and preserved. However, older trees are more likely to need maintenance and pruning because they can develop cracks or cankers in branches and trunks, compromising their structural integrity.

Crown reduction tree pruning is a process that involves taking the stress off a tree by reducing long, heavy or overextended branches, including those with defects. By removing weight from the end of branches with crown reduction pruning, we can form a new crown without compromising the appearance or health of the tree. It can also prevent major damage from ice or wind storms, encourage new growth, and more.
