What you need to know about crown reduction from Take A Bough

When our London tree surgeons perform a tree crown reduction they ensures that all the branches are cut back to a suitable length and back to a suitable growth point.  The entire crown is thereby reduced in size and volume but maintains a pleasing shape in line with the natural profile for the species.

A tree surgeon may recommend a 30% reduction, but this is only a guideline, as the tree dictates how much can be removed based on available growth points.  Also it is important to understand that the crown of the tree refers to the branch work.  A 30% crown reduction will not reduce the overall height of the tree by 30%.
