Tree topping is the practice of heavy duty pruning at the tops of trees in order to make sure that they are growing (or not growing) in the way that you want them to. There are many reasons why people want to get trees topped and there are also many benefits to doing so. On this service page we will run you through some of these as well as giving you the tools to make the right decision when it comes to the trees that you will want to top. Have a read below to find out all of the details and, as always, feel free to get in touch if you are curious to find out more or if you have any questions at all regarding the service. We look forward to hearing from you!
One of the main reasons why somebody would want to get rid of the top of a tree is to cut it down a little bit, both literally and metaphorically. The reasons for this are to give the other trees and the other wildlife in the area a chance to grow more. If a tree has become what is known in arborist circles as ‘dominant,’ then it needs to be cut back a little to make sure that the sunlight and the nutrients are shared around in a fairer way. If you think about two trees side by side, one larger than the other - the shorter one will have shorter roots meaning it will get less of the sunlight and less of the nutrients in the soil as well. Tree topping can help redress the balance.
Just as someone might go for a crew cut, or wear naked lipstick, some of us prefer trees that have the bare and beautiful look. As tree lovers, this is not something that some of us would naturally choose, but as tree contractors, we are very happy to provide this service for the good folks in the Kent area. Topping a tree is likely to stunt its growth and, if done properly, along with a combination of pruning and trimming, we can help you to achieve that exact look for your trees. Excited offshoots are not guaranteed to happen if the process is carried out properly.
First things first: because of all of the different types of tree topping and the different benefits that can be received, we need to know the reason you want this service and the types of trees you want to implement it on. Whether this takes the form of a conversation or an inspection - the result is the same: we are able to come in and perform a great job with the full knowledge of your motivation. It will leave you with a smile on your face at the end of the day!
