Tree topping is not a good practice

Please Don't Top Your Trees

Topping is the senseless practice of indiscriminately removing a majority of a tree's branches.
Topping violates most commonly accepted methods of proper pruning; it is an assault on the health and beauty of your trees.
Five important facts to remember about tree topping: Don't let this happen to your trees!
  • Topping will not make trees safe; it actually creates hazardous trees.
  • Topping makes a tree more susceptible to storm damage.
  • Topping makes a tree more prone to insect and disease problems.
  • Topping is: abuse, vandalism, dangerous, expensive, mutilation, ugly.
  • Topping is a waste of money.
