Topping a tree is bad! Topping creates many problems, including: multiple tops, tree stress, watersprouts, and an opening for parasites and fungus. All responsible tree specialists, such as the Blooma Tree Experts, avoid topping trees.
The responsible way to reduce a tree's height is called crown reduction
Here, we prune the tree knowledgeably and safely, eliminating some branches and shortening others by cutting back to a lateral. This pruning creates a natural appearance, retains a tree's structure, prevents parasitic and fungal attack, and minimizes tree stress. Trust us to responsibly balance both your needs and the tree's needs to create a beautiful symbiotic balance.
