Q.Topping A Schefflera Tree
All the articles I read suggest Topping a Schefflera Tree to keep it about 8′ tall. Ours has a long stem and a leafy ball at the top. To properly top this tree do you cut off the entire top and leave the trunk of the tree bare at about 6′ to have it “regrow” all the leaves? Thank you

You do not need to cut off the whole top. You can just remove about 1/2 of the leafy area and the bottom trunk should sprout leaves.
