Pollarding services for Chelmsford
What is pollarding a tree?
Pollarding is a pruning system that involves the removal of the upper branches of a tree back to the main stem, which then promotes a dense head of foliage and branches. Pollarding is normally undertaken to the following tree species: Lime, Poplar, Plane, Willow.
When should you pollard a tree?
Pollarding should ideally start once the tree has become established and is between 25mm to 50mm. The initial pollarding cut should allow some of the pre-existing foliage to be retained, in order to reduce any severe damage to the tree. Most trees benefit from pollarding in late winter or early spring.
Pollarding should be maintained by cutting the new branches on a cyclical basis. If however the pollard cycle has been allowed to lapse over many years, the crown should instead be reduced to the minimum necessary to fulfil the objective.
Waste removal undertaken by Tree Surgeons Essex
Once the tree surgeons have performed tree crown cleaning to cut the extra branches and limbs, they can chop them into smaller pieces and put them inside durable bags to prepare them for disposal. For an extra charge, the team can also perform the waste collection themselves.
Our fully trained and qualified team provide the complete range of modern and effective tree maintenance procedures recognised by today's arboricultural industry.
