Tree Reducing & Shaping in Pembrokeshire

Sometimes referred to as crowning, topping or lopping.

Tree reduction is the art of reducing the crown of a tree usually by an approximate percentage or a visual mark pointed out by you the customer. 

Arb-Aid will recommend a certain limit to the reduction which will be in the interests of your tree’s health and ongoing vitality. Sometimes referred to by our clients in the past as tree topping, lopping or tree crowning; our reduction & shaping service is not just simply cutting off the top it includes reducing the whole crown of the tree including reducing the sides in proportion to the top.

Arb-Aid cut back to appropriate growth points (Target pruning) in order to leave your tree with a more natural shape and character and so enhancing the natural aesthetics of your garden.

Balancing out your tree is where we would reduce certain parts to create a more symmetrical form, still maintaining the natural characteristics of the particular species of tree. Arb-Aid will recommend this when the tree’s branches are significantly outweighing the structure of the tree in any particular direction and this will also benefit the stability of the root system.
