We are often asked to reduce trees for clients, generally with the aim of improving light levels to a space.
Tree pruning is very subjective and best advised by an experienced Arboriculturalist. Depending on the species, age, condition and location will determine the best course of action, if any is required.
Recently we were asked to reduce a large Copper Beech tree in Truro for a private client. The tree was rightly protected by TPO status and all works had been agreed prior to starting. The specification was for a 1.5 metre crown reduction (with no cuts to exceed a diameter of 50mm), light crown thin and removal of deadwood.
The tree is a perfectly healthy specimen and our client only wanted to allow some more light into their vegetable garden to help improve with production.
This project is a good example compromising sensitive tree management with our clients needs.
