Topping

Metropolitan Tree Topping

At times, trees get into a growth spurt and become too tall to be acceptable to your neighborhood. Also, trees that grow too big can outgrow the space allocated to them and this increases the risk of falling down and damaging property or injuring someone. Furthermore, tall trees can damage windows and roofline, or get entangled with overhead power lines. So, it is essential you cut the trees to an acceptable size. This is easier said than done as you have to find the right professional.

At Metropolitan Tree and Landscaping Corp, we provide professional tree topping services across New York City and Long Island. We ensure we do it right the first time around and that too without stressing or traumatizing the tree.

What is Tree Topping?

Tree topping is also known as rounding over, hat-raking, tipping, and heading. In this technique of cutting surplus and tall branches, the focus is on cutting large branches located on the treetop. As a result, the tree is left with just lateral branches and stumps.

We do not advocate tree topping for all trees as it stresses them out. If you are looking for trimming trees and doing away with unnecessary branches, we recommend our tree pruning services. We use tree topping just for trees that you plan to remove or those that are dying and cannot be saved.

Advantages of Tree Topping

While you will always hear that tree topping is not the best method, it has a few advantages that you should be aware of.

It is the perfect choice for trees that have sustained severe damage due to a natural disaster. It is also a solution for unwanted trees growing on your property. It is prudent to remember that at times topping could be the only alternative for repairing a tree. That is something our experienced and skilled arborists will let you know when they inspect a tree on your property.

We use tree topping only when there is no other way to cut or prune a tree. We do not use this pruning technique regularly and weigh the pros and cons before going ahead with it.
