Just wanted to reiterate once again that topping trees is a VERY BAD practice. Tree topping is when someone goes in and cuts big branches off leaving no folliage at all. It leaves you with large wounds and weak branches. The large wounds make your tree vulnerable to disease and pest problems. I mean, what great entry points for them! The weak branches (when they finally do grow back) are likely to break in high winds. The trees below were topped months and months ago! This is how they look today. I don't see much beauty there. How about you?
