Pollarding (tree pruning) – a rare and precision tree lopping & tree removal Hillcrest technique
Initially understand what this technique is as there are countless forms of poor tree pruning called pollarding (tree pruning), which is simply not the instance, they are topping or tree lopping and covered later on.
Additionally it is necessary you understand the varieties that it applies also, not all trees can take it. Usually the varieties are deciduous (drop leaves for winter) and since pollarding (tree pruning) removes all development it’s great to have a species that at least has ended up being familiar with being defoliated or the tree lopping. These deciduous trees keep energy for the springtime burst of fallen leaves and shoots so they are much better able to recuperate from a 100% prune. Several of the appropriate varieties are willow, lime, ash, field maple, holly, hornbeam, oak, airplane and beech. See something acquainted? You don’t grow those up below! We remain in a subtropical environment not temperate.
Pollarding (tree pruning) is additionally commenced on young trees, it’s not what you do to a fully grown tree. It’s a typical technique to begin 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 cut off any collars or pollard heads, you cut just outside them. New stems grow from the pollard head. The trees need to have this duplicated each year or 2. The original factor for this pruning was to maintain a routine supply of wood and fodder yearly from the exact same trees and to additionally contain the size and type of trees. Correctly done to the best varieties does not appear to decrease the lifespan supplying it started at a very early age.
The pollard heads are very hard (woundwood) and additionally filled with energy as a storage factor just near the injury for defence and to supply brand-new development. Degeneration seldom advances much past the pollard head.
You’ll see some efforts at this however I can truthfully state the last time I saw an appropriate pollarded tree in reality was some two decades ago in Adelaide, it was a London Aircraft tree. Some people try to practice this on their Crepe Myrtles however they don’t have the method right nor do they generally begin it on a young specimen. My advice is keep clear of it and leave it to an expert
