Sometimes our friends have small things that they want to do around the house that requires a chainsaw. If you are one of those friends, please remember...SAFETY FIRST! Also, we are the professionals...so feel free to call the experts at Get-R-Cut if that job is just too BIG!

Reason #8

Cost

To a worker with a saw, topping trees is much easier than applying skill and judgement of good pruning. Therefore, topping may cost less in the short run. However, the true costs of topping are hidden. These costs include reduced property value, the expense of removal and replacement if the tree dies, the loss of other trees and shrubs if they succumb to changed light conditions, the risk of liability from weakened branches, and increased future maintenance.

Reason #7

Ugliness

A topped tree is a disfigured tree. Even with its regrowth, it never regains the grace and character of its species. The landscape and the community are robbed of a valuable asset.

Reason #6

Tree Death

Some older trees are more tolerant of topping than others. Beeches, for example, do not sprout rapidly after severe pruning, and the reduced foliage most surely will lead to death of the tree.

Reason #5

Rapid New Growth

The goal of topping is usually to control the height and spread of a tree. Actually, it has the opposite effect. The resulting sprouts (often called watersprouts) are far more numerous than normal new growth, and they elongate so rapidly that the tree returns to its original height in a very short time - and with a far denser crown.

what people say

  • I had Get-R-Cut come to my house to do some pruning on Oak trees in my backyard. We had some areas that we had different kinds of plants that were directly under the trees to be pruned that we did not want damaged. Jared and Chris did a great job in avoiding any damage to those areas. Jared did a great job in removing a lot of dead branches and pruning up the trees to providing an idea shape to them. Chris, Jared's helper, did a tremendous job managing things on the ground and constantly removing brush and cutting up branches to move to their chipper.
    The clean up process was very well done. I would highly recommend them to others if they need trees pruned or removed. I will be having them return to remove 3 very large trees from our front yard in the near future to get rid of potential problems with them.

  • We have had Jared at our home several times doing work. If you want someone to cut down your trees and clean up your mess, Jared is the man for you. You won't even see a leaf on the ground when he's done. We wouldn't think of using anyone else.
