Topping trees are not an acceptable pruning technique. Topping is the most harmful practice known. A rebutable company or Arborist should NOT top your trees. The International Society of Arboriculture has a code of ethics they must follow and topping breaks the ethics code. If the height of a tree is a concern , call Tim, he will explain his pruning procedure for canopy reduction. Remember, Topping trees reduces the property value 10-20% and stresses the tree causing a slow death. Well cared-for trees are attractive and can add considerable value to your property. Poorly maintained trees can be a significant liability. Please do your research before hiring any 'ol tree company.
