From a conservation point of view, we would always rather reduce a healthy tree than remove it. Crown reductions can allow the retention of tree rather than remove it and losing viable habitat.

We use the latest pruning techniques and are constantly updating our knowledge in line with current practice guidelines and BS3998.

Reducing broadleaf trees should be carried out by skilled arborists to inhibit recovery shoots and ensure correct pruning takes place and trees are not simply “lopped” and “topped”. Bad pruning techniques can cause further issues with unwanted regeneration and badly attached regrowth following poor pruning techniques.
