REDUCTIONS & RESHAPING
Reducing and reshaping is the best recognised technique to retaining a tree that has grown to a size that does not fit with its surroundings. All work is carried out to British standards ensuring correct growth points are used when reducing trees.
Trees may need to be removed due to their size or the structural condition. Lowering protocol may be implicated to ensure safe removal.
However if trees are in areas that allow directional felling then this will be considered.
Crown raising is the removing of the lower branches of the tree this is to encourage light on the ground level. This type of pruning is used via local authorities on trees located over roads and pathways To stop lower branches becoming a health and safety issue.
Hedges in time can grow out of control and too tall. The 'right to light' law could also come into play. It is important that reductions are carried out correctly and that all growth forming the new height is kept to a level line.

Pollarding is a process used to encourage regrowth and vitality. Only certain species react well to this procedure as it is the removal of all its branches just leaving the trees main structural stems.
Growing hedge rows will create natural screens that can also act as boundaries. Trimming them keeps hedges tidy, encourages more compact growth with less gaps which creates a tighter formed hedge.
