A tree should never be topped to control its size. This can harm the overall health of the tree. We recommend that you consult with a certified arborist. An arborist can do an on-site assessment of the tree, check for structural integrity, overall health of the tree, etc. and can make recommendations for pruning correctly. You can find a certified arborist near you by using the following website.
