Crown Reduction - Removes weight from the end of branches back to a healthy, growing lateral branch.. The process reduces long, heavy, or overextended branches, as well as removing any branches with significant defects.
Crown Lifting - Increase the clearance between the ground level and the lower branches either to allow access below the tree, to clear sight lines, improve views or allow light to penetrate to the ground.
Crown Thinning - This is the selective removal of branches evenly throughout the tree to reduce the density of the tree. However, it does not change the overall size or shape of the tree. Crown thinning is designed to reduce damage that could result from crown resistance to strong winds. This technique can be used to create more light and air throughout the tree
