    The pruning guidelines in our area are to take no more than 20% of the canopy from a healthy mature tree.  I believe the trees in our HOA are overtrimmed.  Does anyone have any pictures or ways to measure canopy reduction?  It seems like photos of various amounts of canopy reduction would be provided to all trimmers, but it is not the case in my area.  Thanks for any help. — Eva
