Topping a horse chestnut tree

Zone Hertfordshire | Jayniekeeler added on April 7, 2015 | Answered

I have a massive horse chestnut and my neighbors at the back of me want to have it to topped. I'm not too happy with this, as I've read how damaging it is to the tree. Please could you advise me on this? Thank you.

I would share the information in the article below with your neighbors. Topping trees permanently disfigures and damages the tree, and may even kill it.
