Re: Eucalyptus reduction

Personally I think they are better left alone , crown clean is ok so is crown raise other than that as Taupotreeman say's , I'd rather remove than crown reduce. No offense, its just the amount of regrowth you will get, you client is just throwing his money away.

Re: Eucalyptus reduction

They asked me to quote also for the take down, but said as they had reduced it in the past they are going to go down that route again. I didn't mention about doing a crown lift but they just wanted the whole tree reduced. Looks like i might be back for future work when it goes epi.
