What is pollarding a tree?
Pollarding is normally undertaken to the following tree species: Lime, Poplar, Plane, Willow. It is a system that involves the removal of the upper branches of a tree back to the main stem. As a result of this process when regrowth occurs it promotes a dense head of foliage and branches.
When should you pollard a tree?
Most trees benefit from pollarding in late winter, early spring and the best time to start undertaking this process is when the tree is established. For a trees first pollarding cut, It's important to retain some of the foliage, which will reduce any severe damage to the tree.
This technique should be maintained on a cyclical basis. If, however, your tree has not been cut for a few years it will be necessary to reduce the crown of your tree to its minimum first, so that the pollarding effect can be achieved.
