Tustin Tree Lopping
Tustin, California cares about its trees. That’s just one reason we at Tustin Pro Tree Services fit in so nicely with the community. Whenever quality care on a specimen is needed, we’re the ones to call.
What Is Tree Lopping?
Tree lopping is the process of cutting and shaping branches to make a specimen more aesthetically pleasing or reduce its size. It is not a task to be taken lightly, as improper work can do the tree more harm than good.
The crew at Tustin Pro Tree Services is fully trained to conduct tree lopping without causing damage, or making the tree ill as time passes.
Lopping and Crown Reduction
Crown reduction is a type of tree lopping which involves making cuts to the outermost branches. This helps reduce wind resistance but also changes the shape of the tree. Often, this work is done for cosmetic reasons, as it can make an overly bushy or tall tree look more uniform.
However, the crown reduction can also be used to help keep a tree from interfering with power lines or blocking out too much sun.
When Is Tree Lopping Necessary?
There are several reasons you may want to consider having tree lopping done on one of your specimens. If a tree is in danger of toppling over, removing some of the weight from the upper branches may help.
Another reason to have tree lopping done is if a tree has become too large for its location. This can happen when a tree isn’t pruned early on, or if it grows faster than expected.
Removing some of the outermost branches can help reduce the size of the tree, making it more manageable.
Last, but not least, tree lopping can be done for cosmetic reasons. If a tree is too bushy or has grown too tall, lopping can help create a more pleasing look.

Formative And Remedial Tree Lopping
We provide both formative and remedial tree lopping services. Formative tree lopping is done early on in a tree’s life and helps to shape and control its growth.
Remedial tree lopping is done when a tree has already grown too large or out of control and helps to bring it back under control.
Nor do we just come to the site and start hacking away like Jason Vorhees at a summer camp. Your tree–or trees–will be approached and worked on with the utmost care for its well-being. We are aware of the importance of handling each case in a delicate manner.
For example, if a eucalyptus tree has not had formative tree lopping, its natural shape is columnar. Topping the eucalyptus would give it an unsightly appearance, so we wouldn’t do that. Instead, we would focus on selective pruning to bring the tree into a more attractive–and symmetrical–shape.
First, we’ll come to your property and assess the tree, or trees, in question. We’ll take into account the species of tree, its age, its location on the property, and any other relevant factors.
Once we have a good understanding of the situation, we’ll develop a plan of action. This plan will take into account the tree’s needs, as well as your goals for the finished product.
Once the plan is in place, we’ll get to work. Our crew will work quickly and efficiently to achieve the desired results, without causing any damage to your property.
Once the job is done, we’ll clean up any debris and haul it off, leaving your property looking better than ever.
