8 good reasons NOT to “top” your tree

  1. Starvation: Topping removes so much of the tree’s leafy crown that it dangerously reduces the tree’s food-making ability.
  2. Shock: By removing the protective cover of the tree’s canopy, bark tissue is exposed to the direct rays of the sun. The resultant scalding can cause the tree’s death.
  3. Insects and Disease: The exposed ends of topped limbs are highly vulnerable to insect invasion or decay fungi spores.
  4. Weak Limbs: New branches that grow from a stubbed limb are weakly attached and more liable to break from snow or ice weight.
  5. Rapid New Growth: Instead of controlling the height and spread of the tree, topping has the opposite effect. New branches are more numerous and often grow higher than before.
  6. Tree Death: Some tree species can’t tolerate major branch loss and still survive. At best, they remain weak and disease-prone.
  7. Ugliness: A topped tree is a disfigured tree. Even with new growth it never regains the grace and character of its species.
  8. Cost: The true cost of topping is often hidden – lower property values, expense of removal and replacement if the tree dies.
