How do I tell if my trees need pruning?

If you have limbs that are breaking, it’s likely due to leverage. A crown reduction reduces leverage/the risk of failure by shortening limbs.

Why do use crown reduction instead of thinning?
Crown reduction is a method used to reduce the leverage of individual tree branches. Leverage is often to the culprit for failure as it significantly increases the weight of a branch, causing breakage. Thinning is method in which every third or fourth branch is removed. Crown reduction is a more effective method.
