Is simply reducing the size of the tree crown by cutting back the branches. This in turn replaces wind sail and the weight off the branches. Crown reduction also helps produce more light through and around the crown. No more than 25%-30% crown reduction is recommended as the tree can react badly.
Is removing selective branches and stems within the crown to gain more light and airflow. Increasing the light passing through the tree will help it photosynthesise and keep it energised. In high winds, crown thinning can help reduce the sail which then gives it a higher chance of supporting itself.
This is a heavy pruning technique, that only a few tree species can tolerate. Tree pollarding is the removal of almost all of the trees branches leaving behind just bare limbs off from the stem, or even just leaving the stem itself.
