Tree Pollarding Service

Pollarding trees is a woodland management method of encouraging lateral branches by cutting off a tree stem or minor branches two or three metres above ground level.

The tree is then allowed to regrow after the initial cutting, but once begun, pollarding requires regular maintenance by pruning. This will eventually result in a somewhat expanded (or swollen) top to the tree trunk with multiple new sides and top shoots growing from it.

Pollarding older trees may result in the death of the tree, especially if there are no branches below the cut, or the tree is of an inappropriate species. Pollarding is sometimes abused in attempts to curb the growth of older or taller trees but when performed properly it is useful in the practice of arboriculture for tree management.

Our skilled arborists have been caring for trees of all species, age and size, for many years.

We can provide expert advice on all aspects of maintaining your trees and a full tree care service including crown reduction, thinning and lifting, removing deadwood, pruning all species.
