Crown Reduction

Crown Reduction (also known as ‘Tree Lopping’) is usually carried out when a tree has outgrown its location i.e. to overhead services or buildings in some cases just to reduce the weight of the trees crown.

We carry out Crown Reduction work throughout the year, though avoiding early spring where possible as this can be detrimental to some species. Crown reduction works are normally carried out to maintain a tree that is growing too large for its location but is still required to look aesthetically pleasing. Holly Oak Tree Services usually crown reduce by approximately 25-30% of the trees overall mass, bringing the height down and reducing the sides in. Removing any dead, dying or diseased branches.

‘Tree Lopping’ is often used to describe Crown Reducing although it is not a nice description of this type of work, but a common practice.
