Partial crown shortening

A long life

There comes a time when any tree that’s been extending its crown into the sky for several decades, sometimes even centuries, threatens to tip over or break apart due to its upwardly migrating centre of gravity.

In most cases, partial crown shortening as part of biostatic tree control prolongs the tree’s survival by many years. Additionally, as a result of maintenance / stress-relief, pruning aberrations are corrected, risks of breakage eliminated, public safety restored (“crown securing”) and facades or neighbouring trees are cut free, thus promoting their development. The pruning that the tree receives also benefits the creation of a closed, compact crown.
