Expert Crown Management Services Cheltenham
Crown reductions reduce the ‘sail’ area of the tree; this in turn, alleviates weight and wind loading stresses on the branch structure, and the tree itself. This operation is recommended or requested for trees which are to be retained but may be growing too large for their location or may have biomechanical structural faults.
The images show the before and after of a Copper Beech tree which was outgrowing its location. Covered by a Tree Preservation Order (TPO), we worked closely with Cheltenham Borough Councils Tree Officer throughout the project.
