Q.Will Branches On A Sycamore Tree Grow Back? And How Long If So?

Zone M27 | cameronjamesdaley added on June 28, 2020 | Answered

Today my uncle has his sycamore tree cut. The person who cut it was supposed to just trim it but instead had cut off half way through all the branches. It was a really nice tree and now ruined. Will it grow back?

It is far from ruined. That tree was done a HUGE favor. Pollarding anything in the Acer genus will help keep it manageable, promote airflow, and cause a much bushier growth.

Two years from now, you will have a tree that far exceeds the beauty of an untamed tree.
