Specified Crown Reduction–Substandard Practice?

These specifications did not mention “Pruning Systems” or “Heading Cuts”, so this work does not comply with the ‘parameters of performance’ set by the current draft of the US pruning standard.  The wording in this standard is often used to justify the condemnation of trees like this, instead of managing them.

Are the parameters that are set in this standard too limiting?
