Some people, even self professed tree surgeons, confuse the terms tree topping and crown reduction. There is a definite distinction because in St Helens, crown reduction is a beneficial solution to the health and appearance of a tree while topping a tree has a detrimental effect. Topping is used to reduce the height of a tree by cutting the branches to stubs to control the size of the tree. Topping is a short term solution because the massive number of sprouts that emerge grow quickly so the tree is soon as tall as before topping. However it’s not as strong.as it was before the topping. If topping has to be done to make a tree safe there is a better way to achieve the same goal.
Crown reduction in St Helens is the solution to large overhanging trees. This particular pruning cut is undertaken by skilled tree surgeons who know how and where to cut.so the tree will produce fewer sprouts where the the branch is laterally cut to a crotch. The tree will have less height and volume but it will maintain its original growth pattern and retain its strength and beauty. Careless pruning of trees can do a lot of damage when the goal is to preserve.
