Weight reduction pruning is a specialised tree care service that involves removing branches and foliage from a tree to reduce its overall weight. We typically use this technique for trees that have grown too large or have become top-heavy, making them more susceptible to damage from wind, or other weather events.
The goal of weight reduction pruning is to reduce the stress placed on the tree’s branches and trunk, making it less likely to break or topple over during extreme weather conditions. By selectively removing branches and foliage, weight reduction pruning can also improve the tree’s overall structure and appearance.
We first assess your trees to identify areas where weight reduction is needed, and then carry out the pruning with the right technique. By reducing the weight of a tree, you can decrease the risk of damage to your property or nearby structures during extreme weather events.
Additionally, weight reduction pruning can improve the overall health and appearance of the tree, making it more aesthetically pleasing and potentially increasing its lifespan. Contact us today for a free quote.
