What is the Difference Between Tree Topping and Tree Trimming?

At Frank’s Lawn & Tree Service, our clients often ask our specialists to “just lop the top off” to reduce the overall size of their trees. While this common practice called tree topping is a great way to recreate the “Whomping Willow” look from Harry Potter, it is actually quite harmful to most trees and plants.

What’s the difference between tree trimming and topping anyway? Well to put it plainly, when you severely cut away at a tree to decrease its size, this is topping the tree. When you take the necessary time to cut and prune the tree carefully, this is tree trimming. Topping typically leads to permanent damage to a tree while trimming enables greenery to continuously thrive.
