Why you should NOT top a tree...Part 3

Reason # 3

Insects and Disease

The large stubs of a topped tree have a difficult time forming callus. The terminal location of these cuts, as well as their large diameter, prevent the tree's  chemically based natural defense system from doing its job. The stubs are highly vulnerable to insect invasion and the spores of decay fungi. If decay is already present in the limb, the opening will speed the spread of the disease.

  • Jared and his Team at Get-R-Cut did an excellent job removing two trees in our back yard and trimming 4 large oaks we had in our front yard. I have worked with Jared on other projects in the past and I will continue to call on Jared for future projects.
