Pollarding is a technique used around in urban places the world to maintain a trees height by way of trimming or removing its upper branches. This practice is typically used to shorten the height of a tree and limiting its maximum height and is no longer of regular request in the UK.
Pollarding is not generally used in line with other modern methods and only really should be taken out on a tree that has been through the procedure prior. This is because mature trees can suffer from decay as a result of the large wounds that are left behind.
Tree pollarding is a service that is often requested by customers or people that do not fully understand the severity of the procedure. In fact, a lot o the time tree crown reduction may suffice as an alternative and offer results that please the requester.
