Pollarding Trees

Pollarding is a technique used to keep trees and shrubs smaller than they would normally grow. Pollarding is usually carried out annually once a tree reaches a certain height. This technique is normally performed for a number of reasons

  • To prevent obstruction to street lights or electric wires
  • To reduce the shade cast by a tree
  • To prevent trees outgrowing their allotted space

This pruning technique involves removing the branches of a tree to promote a dense head of foliage and branches.
