Tree after cutting branches on top. Tree crown reduction.Tree crown reduction is the process of carefully selecting and removing specific branches in a canopy to decrease the tree’s overall height and spread. Reducing tree crowns is a tree care service that can improve the health, safety, and beauty of your trees when they’ve grown too large or become unmanageable. 

Our expert arborists at AKA Tree Service perform tree crown reduction to ensure your trees thrive while enhancing the aesthetics and safety of your Atlanta, GA property. Whether you need tree canopy reduction, pruning, or trimming, we’ve got you covered with our professional and reliable services.

Tree Canopy Growth Reduction Services

Reducing the canopy growth of a tree involves selectively removing branches to decrease the overall size of the tree’s crown. This process is crucial for preventing trees from becoming top-heavy and risking damage during storms. 

Our tree canopy growth reduction services include:

  • Health assessment and treatment of affected areas
  • Strategic branch removal
  • Height reduction
  • Disposal of potentially hazardous limbs
  • Application of treatments, like Cambistat (if needed)

What is Cambistat, and Why Do We Use It?

Cambistat is a popular tree canopy growth regulator used by arborists to slow the growth rate of trees. When applied, it gently reduces the growth of new shoots, which means fewer pruning requirements and a longer retention of the tree’s natural form. Applying Cambistat makes trees more manageable and less prone to diseases. It also enhances root growth, improves drought resistance, and increases the overall health of the tree.

Tree Crown Pruning and Trimming

Tree crown pruning and trimming are both processes of selectively cutting back branches to reduce the overall size and density of the tree’s crown. Trimming helps improve light penetration, air circulation, and the tree’s structural stability. Regular pruning also helps promote new growth and maintain the structural integrity of the tree. 

Skilled arborists at AKA Tree Service use the latest techniques and equipment to ensure that your trees are cared for without causing unnecessary stress or damage. Our tree crown pruning and trimming services include:

  • Health assessment and treatment of affected areas
  • Diseased limb and deadwood removal
  • Correction of structural issues
  • Enhancement of sunlight penetration and air circulation within the canopy
  • Tree healthcare planning

What are the Benefits of Crown Reduction?

Getting professional crown reduction offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Reduced on the whole tree and specific branches.
  • Improved tree health by removing overextended branches (that are prone to disease and breakage).
  • Enhanced safety from reduced weight and spread of the tree.
  • Better aesthetics from shaping the tree to a more desirable form (especially in urban or residential settings).

What is the Difference Between Crown Reduction and Tree Topping?

Both methods of crown reduction and tree topping aim to reduce the size of a tree – but tree topping is no longer widely practiced. In the tree industry, tree topping is considered harmful and is no longer offered by tree service companies.

Crown reduction is a selective process, targeting specific limbs and branches for strategic removal and maintaining the tree’s natural form and health. On the other hand, tree topping is the practice of cutting tree branches to stumps. For some, this has resulted in stressing their trees, leading to health issues and ultimately shortening their life.

Our arborists keep up with maintenance best practices, and can help you choose the best approach for your property’s specific needs.

When to Do Crown Reduction

Crown reduction should be done when a tree’s size or shape becomes a concern for safety, health, or aesthetic reasons. Ideal times for crown reduction are during the tree’s dormant season or after a growth spurt. Our arborists can help you determine the best time to perform crown reduction based on the specific needs of your trees and the local climate conditions.
