Tree Topping

Spears Tree Services offers tree topping to our customers.  This is the practice of removing whole tops of trees or large branches and/or trunks from the tops of trees, leaving stubs or lateral branches that are too small to assume the role of a terminal leader. Other common names for the practice include hat-racking, heading, rounding over, and another facilities to our customer is Tree Topping. We have a well experienced workers to do reduction of a tree’s size

Tree topping is the reduction of a tree’s size using heading cuts that shorten limbs or branches back to a stub. The goal of tree topping is to reduce the tree’s size to make it safer. Spears tree professionals never offer or perform topping; instead they will assist you in pruning your tree in a healthy manner. ANSI A300 standard define practices for tree care and have been adopted by the Tree Care Industry Association – topping is specifically mentioned as an unacceptable practice.

Tree topping removes 50% to 100% of the leaf-bearing branches of a tree. Leaves are the source of food for a tree, removing them can temporarily starve the tree. Severe pruning forces latent buds in the trunk below the cut to sprout in order for the tree to generate more leaves. If the tree does not have the stored energy to do this, it will become weak and may die.
