Tree Topping Houston Texas

Tree Topping Houston Texas

What is Tree Topping Houston Texas? Tree Topping is the indiscriminate cutting of tree branches to stubs or to lateral branches that are not large enough to assume the terminal role. Other names for topping include “heading,” “tipping,” “hat-racking,” and “rounding over.” Tree Topping is often used to reduce the size of a tree. A homeowner may feel that a tree has become too large for his or her property, or that tall trees may pose an unacceptable risk. Tree Topping, however, is not a viable method of height reduction and certainly does not reduce future risk. In fact, topping will increase risk in the long term.



Effects of Tree Topping Houston Texas

Topping a tree is often sold to the homeowner as a way to reduce the size of the tree, open up the view, and make it safer.

The reality is the exact opposite.

After topping, the tree will quickly grow back to the same size (or even larger) but will have lost its natural shape (the word “ugly” comes to mind) and the new growth will be weaker and poorly attached to the trunk (making the tree more dangerous). Add to that the fact that the large, non-selective heading cuts made when topping the tree don’t heal well (leading to rot, disease, and insect infestations) and you have a recipe for disaster.
