Topping is NEVER a viable option. If it doesn’t kill the tree, it will mutilate it and make it unsafe for future years to come. Many homeowners feel that a tree is “too big,” and this makes it unsafe. Proper tree care will help to ensure tree safety however topping will almost definitely ensure that a tree will become a hazard. Trimming a tree is not “giving it a haircut.” Pruning should be considered finger or appendage removal and should be approached with surgical care.
Lot Clearing is not a recommended practice but to an extent it is sometimes necessary. It leaves the earth exposed and barren which will cause many issues such as erosion problems. We would much rather work with the builder to determine which trees would need to removed and which trees could stay (in tree protection zones) during the completion of the project. We also recommend setting rules in place that would fine contractors for infractions of the tree protection zones. Leveling an entire lot and removing all the trees is not a recommended environmental practice.
