The trees lopped are unsafe and this is because the new branches growing replacing the lost branched due to lopping are from epicormic buds and so have a weak attachment. As such growth involves no mechanism to attach the shoots to pre-existing older wood. In fact, it may also result in failure as the decay expands into the wood from the wounds of the tree lopping.

This process is lost once the leaves are removed and compels the tree to depend on the reserve stores that are finite and it becomes depleted if too often it is drawn upon . Sometimes, trees fail to recover from lopping, and in such conditions they die or decline. This happen with trees that undergo stress while lopping.
