This really hurts.

There is a practice going on here in Tennessee that just irritates the you-know-what out of me. It's called tree-topping. People will call a so-called professional to get their trees trimmed because of falling branches and instead of trimming the trees, they denude them. So then the tree in a year or so will look like this.

What these so called professionals are doing is killing these trees. I love trees, and was sad to take down the number of trees we did to build our house. Fortunately most of those were diseased dogwoods.

Please, please, do not do this to your trees!

  1. Is that what this is? Here in Virginia I have seen some trees that appear to have had a similar treatment (though not quite as brutal as this), and I wondered why such a "hatchet job" had been done. It is so ugly!
