Dempsey are you aware Scottish Cleaning Services has hijacked yr account?  K

Khriss, a sycamore like that can be reduced/topped multiple times with no problems.

 

I know that it should turn its toes up and die of shame but 

 

A: It is unaware of its aesthetic value to the human eye.

 

B: It didn’t go to college so doesn’t realise it should die to prove the arb fundamentalists right.

Said on there buisness they were nptc qualified 

Saying that your NPTC qualified and being NPTC qualified is 2 totally different things that could be miles apart, with out seeing NPTC cert,s when i employ some one i just take it with a pinch of salt till i see that certificate, the travelling people will tell you anything and just fill you full of bullshit just to do a job like yours, sorry but its not good at all, i would be ashamed to send a invoice for that work,

Dempsey, you can use high explosive squash head rounds on Sycamors, And they will  ' come back'  it does not mean ' you should'  K

No, but it means the OPs tree will recover within a season and the piles of arboroculturists outside her door who have fainted in horror at the sight of her topped  self sown sycamore will diminish, thank God

It will re grow don’t panic, there is a good chance it will want good pruning work And a reshape in a few years time. 
however I would try a decent (read different) company next time, asking here or local recommendations should help with that. 
 

unless you asked for it to be topped as cheap as possible (as to reduced nicely) in which case you got exactly that and the contractor did as requested, however A decent contractor would normally try to educate the tree owner as to the better option. A decent reduction shouldn’t have had a big cost difference.

I was.

Thought so - I often wondered what ‘Mick’ was short for. Margaret wasn’t even on my radar tbh, but it does explain a few things!...
