Trees need sunlight to live, and when there are many trees close together, they often compete for sunlight by growing as tall as possible to access the much needed sunlight. When these trees are overgrown, they can become unsteady as the structure and natural inclination of the species is not designed to accommodate the height of the tree. As a tree grows taller, it will naturally sway more and have more give back and forth, and if the root structure does not provide adequate support, the tree can become a danger to your home, vehicles, and other property, as well as all occupants. In these cases, we recommend tree topping after reducing the overcrowding to maintain your trees. Tree topping may also be recommended if the upper part of a tree is diseased or badly damaged.
Tree topping is a practice in which the top of the tree is removed, which serves several purposes. Tree topping will stunt the vertical growth of the tree and allow for lower branches to spread out more readily. This process can also promote better yield in fruit trees, allowing the tree to concentrate more of its resources into fruit production. Tree topping may also be needed if you have a tree encroaching on a power line.
