What is Tree Crown Reduction

Crown reduction is simply the cutting of a tree’s live branches down to a crotch created by a secondary branch. Typically, in crown reduction, a live branch is cut down to a crotch created by a secondary branch that is at least one-third the size(diameter) of the main branch. This is done so that nutrients from the primary branch continues to flow to the secondary branches like nothing happened. The secondary branch closest to cut begins to function like the portion of the primary branch that was cut off.

How about Tree Crown Thinning

Tree crown thinning is quite similar to crown reduction but for one key difference, crown thinning does not alter the overall size and shape of the tree. Crown thinning is done to reduce the density of the tree. A reduction in tree density reduces the shade provided by the tree, thereby letting in more light to the garden. Crown thinning is also great when the goal is to reduce the tree’s growth rate and wind resistance.

Benefits of Trimming

Regular trimmings will provide the plants with all the benefits for their better survival and growth. Some of these are

  • The growth of the leaves becomes denser than before. Thus, increasing the yield of the shrubs.
  • All the old or deceased herbs are likely to be removed from the tangled shrubs.
  • Roots have increased exposure to the sunlight. Hence, contributing to the overall wellness of the plant.
  • Provides an aesthetic view of the landscape with the on-point shrub.

Now, why would you want to employ tree crown thinning? Why do crown reduction?

Tree topping (also known as tipping, or heading) is pretty much an outdated technique. As the name implies, tree topping involves cutting off the top of a tree. In tree topping, the large branches are cut down leaving only the smaller branches. Tree topping is more of a destructive technique than it is a method of pruning.
