Courthouse Sycamore Removals

If you were driving through downtown Wenatchee a few weeks ago, you might have seen Kile Tree Service in action, removing 2 Sycamore trees on the front lawn of the county courthouse. Both of these trees had been repeatedly topped, and their upper canopies were top-heavy with large sprout growth and weakened by extensive decay that was caused by the old topping cuts. These trees were not old, maybe 40 years or so, and could have lived a lot longer if they had not been topped out the way they were.

This is another reason why topping is bad for trees- topping shortens a tree’s life.
