Dangers of Tree Topping
Many homeowner call our office to get estimates on topping their trees. Topping your tree can be one of the worst practices in tree care that is considered harmful. Many homeowners are not aware of how detrimental topping can be to their trees. Although many homeowners feel that the primary purpose of topping a tree is to reduce the size of the tree, topping stresses trees and lead to sun scold( the tree splinters or cankers, and branches can die). Besides making your tree look " ugly," topping can create hazards, such as shoots prone to breaking in windy conditions. An alternative to topping is to let a professional arborist determine what type of tree pruning is necessary to improve the health and safety of your tree.
Tree Cabling and Bracing
Cabling and bracing are two methods used to prolong the aesthetic look of trees. By nature, some trees are prone to have weak crotches and others develop weakness due to decay, storm damage, or other damage. By cabling or bracing, we can lengthen the amount of time a tree maintains its healthy look and reduce the possibility of breaking.
