Removing Dead, Dying or Diseased branches throughout the Tree:
This involves the precise removal of dead, dying or diseased branches throughout the Tree without causing any damage to the tree itself.
This includes the removal of deadwood, diseased and dying wood, broken or split branches, epicormic growth, and basal suckers if requested and crossing or rubbing branches.
This includes overhauling the crown and the thinning out of the crown in order to allow the wind to travel more freely through the crown and to reduce the wind sail.
Crown reduction can allow the continued conservation of trees where structural problems might otherwise demand the loss of a tree. Crown reduction is often required to compensate for loss of root viability.
The removal of the lowest branches that effectively increase the height of the main crown above ground level.
Heavy crown reduction pruning or pollarding techniques are sometimes appropriate where the crown of a tree is simply too large for its location or in instances where extensive defects and weaknesses might make the tree unstable.
