What is pollarding?
What is pollarding trees? It is one of the oldest forms of tree surgery being practised today, and one that we specialise in. It is a method of pruning that keeps a tree or shrub smaller than they would grow naturally. Pollarding can normally be carried out once the tree or shrub reaches a certain height, and is then performed on an annual basis to restrict its growth to that size.
There are a number of reasons to perform pollarding on a tree, such as:
- A tree or shrub is outgrowing its allotted space
- You want to reduce the amount of shade cast by a tree
- It is posing a threat to power lines, or obstructing streetlights
For these reasons, pollarding is one of the most in-demand forms of tree surgery and is requested by domestic and commercial property owners.
Why you should call in the professionals
One of the questions that we are often asked is, can pollarding kill a tree? When carried out by a professional, that is nigh on impossible. Our tree surgeons know when to perform pollarding on a particular tree, and often recommend that it be performed in late winter or early spring.
Pollarding can require working at height and is often performed using large power tools. For that reason, we always recommend that it is carried out by a professional tree surgeon with plenty of experience to draw upon. Not only will be they be able to work safely, but they will be able to assess the health of your tree and tailor their approach accordingly.
