Crown Reduction is where you bring an overall shape to the crown of the tree. Crown reduction is one of the common techniques used today in pruning trees. This is where you cut the foliage from the outer edge into the crown, reducing the overall shape and size of the tree. When doing this type of reduction, ideally all cuts should be made to a bud or as close as you can to a partnering limb.
By doing this you can ensure that the tree has maintained its health and will not be as prone to limbs dying off or diseases. It reduces the weight of the tree and can potentially prevent limbs becoming dangerous and snapping in adverse weather conditions. When Crown Reducing, the tree should always be balanced.
