Don’t let an amateur tell you he can top it for you.
Trees add beauty and value too your property. I start by evaluating your trees for safety. Has it been improperly pruned before, e.g., topped, or head cut which neither are approved practices.
Both will create a dangerous tree and lower property values because the tree is dying from the improper pruning, while new water sprouts are trying to save the tree. The limbs are dying. The water sprouts grow rapidly on the dying limb and eventually wind or snow start bringing them down.
Douglas Tree Service uses an approved technique called Crown Reduction Pruning , sometimes called drop-crotch pruning, is most often used when a tree has grown too large for its permitted space. This method is preferred to topping because it results in a more natural appearance, increases the time before pruning is needed again, and minimizes stress. This special procedure removes the end of a branch by cutting back to a “crotch” created by a lateral branch so that water and nutrients will be redirected into the lateral branch and it can then assume the primary growth responsibility of the removed branch. Employing this method insures the tree will produce fewer sprouts at the point of the cut and the tree’s natural growth will be preserved.

Severe winds and harsh storms can brutally assault your trees. So, too, can insects like wood-boring bugs severely affect a tree's health. Ultimately, certain problems like these can kill a tree. Even if your tree has died from an inadequate water or nutrient supply, you should still consider having it removed. Here's why you should:
Dead trees attract pests. Your tree may be dead or is in the process of dying, but that doesn't mean wildlife won't build a nest there. In fact, while a nice family of bluebirds may move in, your tree might also attract rats and termites. Both pests can migrate the short distance to your home.
They're unattractive. Dead trees aren't aesthetically pleasing. If you spend money on other aspects of landscaping, you're counteracting those upgrades with the unappealing look of a dead tree.
Tree diseases are contagious. If your tree died from—or is currently dying from—a disease, other plants can contract that disease. So if you planted flowers underneath your tree, or you planted other trees in the general vicinity, the same disease may infect these live and healthy plants.
Tree branches may fall. Dead trees begin to decompose. If you don't hire someone to remove it, these weakened branches may fall on a windy day or during a storm. In actuality, these branches may fall at any given time, destroying your home or your property. They're also a liability if they fall on your neighbor's property. Don't forget, animals and people may walk underneath the tree and suffer a serious injury, if not death, from being hit by a branch. The tree is more likely to fall. Decay and decomposition compromise the integrity of the tree. Whichever way the tree falls, it may damage your home or your neighbor's property of injure your family or passerby.
