What is a crown reduction?

A crown reduction is the removal of branches from the top and sides of the tree. This keeps the tree in its natural shape, preventing it from becoming overgrown in a confined environment. In short, it is a more elaborate form of pruning.

We take great care to remove dangerous deadwood and crossing branches during a crown reduction. This minimises the chance of pathogens and disease infecting the tree, while also restoring the tree to a safe, balanced shape.

Crown reductions can be carried out on trees of any sizes. Our team is experienced and skilled at performing crown reductions safely. No matter how tall your tree is, we can restore it to a reduced size.

In addition to this, Artemis Tree Services offer a first-rate crown thinning and crown lifting service.

Crown thinning & lifting

Crown thinning involves removing the inner branches of the crown to allow more light to travel through. As with crown thinning, we remove the deadwood to keep your tree in a healthy condition.

Crown lifting, as the name suggests, is the removal of branches from the lower part of the crown, which in turn lifts the crown’s height. Crown thinning is essential for ensuring vehicles and people can travel underneath the tree safely.

Artemis were such a clean-cut, well-mannered and chirpy bunch that you might think they have turned up to host antiques roadshow on your front lawn as opposed to cutting your trees down. Simon is a superstar veteran of the tree world, and whilst you might not be lucky enough to get a personal appearance from him, you can be sure that everyone of his team is hand picked by him and moulded to his exacting standards. They perform their death-defying work with lighting efficiency and razor-sharp precision, they clear up and clean up and check you are happy with everything, and you’re left feeling like you stepped out of the cinema when you were a kid after watching the Superman movie. The only thing I would say is missing is a dance routine and song.

Gave us a quote within a week. We had to wait about one month for the job to be completed as they were so busy, but the guys came, shaped the tree beautifully and cleaned up the area afterwards. Grand job. Would definitely recommend Artemis.

A second job was to shape a viburnum, work that Artemis has undertaken several times before. On this occasion the usually first rate work from Artemis fell somewhat short. However, after much effort and reworking a reasonable outcome was reached. I will add though that the two staff members were very personable, which has always been the case on the occasions I have used your company. I will have no hesitation in continuing to use Artemis.
