Understanding Pollarding

At its core, pollarding is a meticulous method of controlling tree growth. Unlike conventional pruning which focuses on selective branch removal, pollarding involves the systematic removal of the upper branches of a tree, promoting a dense head of foliage and branches. This technique not only maintains the tree’s health but also manages its size and shape, making it particularly useful for urban settings with space constraints.


The Benefits

  • Space Management: Urban landscapes often grapple with space limitations. Pollarding provides a tailored solution, allowing trees to flourish in confined areas without overshadowing structures or obstructing pathways.
  • Safety: Overgrown tree canopies pose significant risks, especially during storms or adverse weather conditions. By reducing the weight and density of tree canopies, pollarding minimizes the chances of falling branches, ensuring a safer environment for inhabitants and passersby.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: Beyond its functional advantages, pollarding enhances the visual appeal of trees and landscapes. By promoting denser foliage and a uniform canopy, trees exude a manicured, elegant look, elevating the overall aesthetic of the surroundings.

Trimming ivy

Another excellent job by Lawrence and team. Despite finding a wasps nest they continued to cut my ivy and just left a little section next to the nest. As usual the work was carried out in a friendly but professional way.
