Lopping is BAD!

If your trees are important to you, it is a bad idea to engage any person who recommends “lopping” or “topping” or “lion-tailing” a tree. Proper tree work on the other hand creates beautiful results, and is done in accordance with Australian Standard  AS 4373-2007 “Pruning of Amenity Trees”

You should not lop (top) trees because :

  • Tree Lopping leaves large exposed wounds that the tree can’t readily close, and which can become infected.
  • Tree Lopping ruins tree structure.
  • Tree Lopping removes too much foliage and disrupts the tree’s energy storage for future growth.
  • Tree Lopping stimulates unnaturally fast growing regrowth, which is weakly attached and prone to breakage.
  • Tree Lopping increases tree maintenance costs.
  • Tree Lopping destroys the tree’s appearance and value.
  • Tree Lopping is an extremely outdated and unprofessional tree cutting technique.

At Boots Tree Services, we have our own tree cutting business arbor innovations which employs ONLY qualified Tree Arborists (minimum Cert 3) for all tree cutting work.

Lopping or topping trees to reduce their size or shape is an unprofessional and dangerous practice. Removing too many leaves can starve a tree and kill it. New shoots (known as epicormic regrowth) below a lopped cuts are weakly attached and prone to breaking off, creating a risk of injury or death. Lopping creates vulnerability to disease and decay. Trees that have been lopped are unattractive and spoil the appearance of a garden or landscape.

Tree lopping is not a cheaper option in the longer term, as the tree is very likely to die and can cost a lot of money to remove. If it survives, it will be structurally unsound and unsafe and will require more regular pruning in order to keep it safe.

Consumers today are more knowledgeable and increasingly refuse to allow their trees to be lopped. Unfortunately, some so-called professionals practice lopping and lion-tailing, which is not as instantly recognized as a bad practice by consumers.

Lopping should not be confused with proper crown reduction pruning, which will safely reduce a tree’s size and redirect its growth. Nor should lion-tailing be confused with proper thinning, which is the selective removal of branches to decrease weight and wind resistance. Generally, proper pruning of either type will not remove more than 25 percent of the tree’s foliage.
