Don’t Top Trees!

Topping is the destructive and obsolete pruning practice of cutting back large branches to stubs, leaving wounds that invite decay and disease into the tree. Topping destroys a tree’s natural shape, beauty, and grace. Topped branches respond with a vigorous growth of weakly attached limbs that are more susceptible to breakage and storm damage and require more frequent maintenance than the original branches. 

Trees are usually topped by well-intended, misinformed people. Contrary to the many myths in its defense, topping is the worst thing you can do for the health of your tree. After a tree is topped, decay and sunscald damage and destroy once-healthy tissue, and the significantly reduced canopy cannot produce enough food to maintain healthy functioning. Disease and insect pests take advantage of the tree’s increased vulnerability and can weaken the whole tree down to the roots. Topping leads to immediate death in some species and a reduced life span in others.
