MYTHS ABOUT TOPPING
Myth: Topping a tree will reduce storm damage and the tree will be easier to maintain.
Fact: Topped trees can grow back to their original height in as little as two years. The fast growing, extremely long and loosely attached shoots resulting from topping are more susceptible to breakage and storm damage. This is because they are weakly connected to the internal structural system of the trees. Ultimately, a topped tree requires more attention in the future than a properly pruned tree. Topped trees need to be topped again and again.
One of the other most common reason given for topping trees is to reduce the size. Homeowners often feel that their trees have become too large for their property. People fear that tall trees may pose a hazard. Topping, however, is not a viable method of height reduction and certainly does not reduce the hazard. In fact, topping will make a tree more hazardous in the long run.
Many homeowners respond to limbs falling by calling a tree service and wanting an estimate on topping the tree. Tree topping is a drastic removal, or cutting back of large branches in mature trees. Topping leaves the trunk and removes the large branches, this will leave large open wounds which can leave the tree open to disease and decay. Topping will cause immediate injury to the tree and will result in early failure or death of the trees. Topping a tree will cause fast growing weak branches to grow and will easily break, creating a hazard to people and property.
Topping destroys the natural form of a tree. The cost of topping a tree in not limited to what is paid. If the tree survives, it will require pruning again within a few years. It will either need to be reduced again or storm damage will have to be cleaned up. If the tree dies, it will have to be removed.
