Should I TOP my Tree?
Simply topping a tree will result in an uneven weight distribution and cause new shoots to form at the highest, most vulnerable part of the tree. Storm damage can cause these topped trees to eventually fail. Be weary of any "professional" tree service company that offers to top your tree. St. Louis Tree Service uses selective pruning, clipping, and crown reduction techniques to properly trim your tree and create a natural shape. Trees get most of their sunlight from the upper most branches where the leaves are youngest and healthiest, and unobstructed by other branches. When you "Top" a tree, you have effectively "cut the head off the giant." It may still be standing, but it will not only look funny, it will have lost one of its most vital components. By professionally trimming your tree, we can selectively trim branches to restore your trees healthy, natural shape, while leaving the mst important nutrient carrying branches intact.

Deadwooding is a specific type of branch trimming in which a trained arborist will selectively prune all the dead branches from an existing otherwise healthy tree. Over time, certain branches become unstable after storm damage, or other trauma, and lose their flow of water and nutrients down the "vein" of the branch. These branches become dried out and no longer produce leaves or fruit and no longer do anything to contribute the health of the tree. Besides just being unsightly, these non-essential branches can block vital sunlight from reaching the rest of the active healthy branches and leaves on the tree. However, many DIY tree trimmers are unable to distinguish not only which branches to trim, but WHERE on the branches to trim in order to deadwood the tree without causing significant trauma. Trimming an an active, healthy branch that may just not have blossomed yet can cause vital resources to leave the tree, cause, undue stress, and lead to disease. Let out trained tree trimmers help you with your deadwooding needs to safely and effectively prune that overgrown tree!
