Reducing the trees overall size, not toping) is the indiscriminate cutting of tree branches to stubs or lateral branches that are not large enough to assume the terminal role. Home owners often feel that their trees have become too large for their property, and they fear that tall trees may pose a hazard. Topping will make a tree more hazardous in the long term, vulnerable to insect and disease infestations, sunburn, cankers, bark splitting, produce multiple shoots which can grow as much as 20 feet in one year, in some species and topping makes trees ugly. The height and girth of a tree can be reduced by removing certain limbs and by redirecting others
Removing certain lower limbs for security, safety, lawn mowing, swimming pool, driveway and visibility of stops signs.
Cabling and bracing
In some cases it may be beneficial for tree preservation and for security to install a non-invasive cable in the upper canopy to provide support for limbs. Tree bracing is installing rigid hardware (threaded steel rod) within parts of a tree that has already failed, such a cracked trunk or split crotch, to create the brace necessary to hold the parts together, this procedure is done in conjunction with support from above.
Tree cabling is installed for some of the following reasons, weak crotches, a canopy prone to failure during high wind and/or heavy ice, or split crotches due to storm damage.
