Pollarding (tree pruning) – an uncommon and accuracy tree lopping & tree removal Birnam approach
Initially understand what this practice is as there are numerous forms of poor tree pruning called pollarding (tree pruning), which is just not the case, they are topping or tree lopping and covered later.
Additionally it is very important you understand the species that it applies too, not all trees can take it. Usually the species are deciduous (decline leaves for winter) and since pollarding (tree pruning) removes all growth it’s great to have a species that at least has become accustomed to being defoliated or the tree lopping. These deciduous trees store energy for the spring burst of leaves and fires so they are much better able to recuperate from a 100% trim. Several of the ideal species are willow, lime, ash, field maple, holly, hornbeam, oak, plane and beech. See something acquainted? You don’t grow those up below! We‘re in a subtropical atmosphere not temperate.
Pollarding (tree pruning) is additionally started on young trees, it’s not what you do to a fully grown tree. It’s a common practice to start pollarding (tree pruning) at stem diameters of 75mm to 100mm.
Pollarding (tree pruning) is the removal of all stems back to their factor of origin, the pollard head. You do not remove any collars or pollard heads, you cut simply outside them. New stems grow from the pollard head. The trees need to have this duplicated every year or 2. The initial factor for this pruning was to keep a normal supply of wood and straw every year from the very same trees and to additionally consist of the dimension and type of trees. Appropriately done to the right species does not seem to decrease the life expectancy providing it started at a very early age.
The pollard heads are really hard (woundwood) and additionally loaded with energy as a storage space factor simply near the wound for defence and to provide new growth. Decay rarely breakthroughs much past the pollard head.
