The "London Plane Trees in the Bandshell area of Golden Gate Park in San Francisco are regularly Completely PRUNED/ REMOVED down to the crown ,leaving only a STUB at the top of the trunk. These trees were probably planted before you were born ! It is an effect used by formal garden designers,  
Not the healthiest thing for the tree.  
Personally I wish the TREE destroyers would just by a new home every ten years in one of the new NAKED Subdivision Homes every just like getting a newer model car.  
Saves the maintenance on aging old construction, roof plumbing wiring etc . this would allow more home shoppers who values the shade effect on old house and saves A/C electric waste for A/C and the tree conserve water in winter instead of abetting flooding streets and rivers, and add oxygen to the air we breath. Sorry about the inconvenient EXERCISE of leaf raking.  
Microclimates of large trees also great foe BIODIVERSITY=

Brenda, this is a great article. Poor pruning can cause damage to trees, just like you have mentioned. I've recently read about similar issues with poor tree pruning services and how to avoid them.  
This is a fascinating topic and is something we should pay attention to more closely so we can ensure that we are properly taking care of our environment.
