I think it depends upon the species of tree.  Birches donot like it, just 
ask me and a few neighbours.  Some conifers will not grow new buds below 
the lowest branches, some will.  I have seen some pines and firs (in the 
Pacific side of NA) topped and they just keep growing.  Some of the 
Christmas tree farms cut the main trunk but leave a couple of lower 
branches to start a new trunk.  So, again, it depends upon the species.
