Pollarding (tree pruning) – an unusual and accuracy tree lopping & tree removal Macgregor technique
Initially recognize what this method is as there are numerous types of poor tree pruning called pollarding (tree pruning), which is simply not the case, they are topping or tree lopping and covered later.
Additionally it is essential you recognize the types that it uses also, not all trees can take it. Generally the types are deciduous (drop leaves for wintertime) and due to the fact that pollarding (tree pruning) eliminates all development it’s excellent to have a species that at the very least has become accustomed to being defoliated or the tree lopping. These deciduous trees keep power for the spring ruptured of fallen leaves and fires so they are better able to recover from a 100% trim. A few of the ideal types are willow, lime, ash, field maple, holly, hornbeam, oak, plane and beech. See something familiar? You do not grow those up below! We remain in a subtropical setting not temperate.
Pollarding (tree pruning) is likewise commenced on young trees, it’s not what you do to a mature tree. It’s a typical method to start pollarding (tree pruning) at stem sizes of 75mm to 100mm.
Pollarding (tree pruning) is the removal of all stems back to their point of beginning, the pollard head. You do not remove any type of collars or pollard heads, you reduced simply outside them. New stems grow from the pollard head. The trees have to have this duplicated each year or two. The initial reason for this pruning was to maintain a regular supply of timber and fodder annually from the same trees and to likewise have the dimension and form of trees. Appropriately done to the ideal types does not seem to reduce the lifespan supplying it commenced at an early age.
The pollard heads are extremely tough (woundwood) and likewise packed with power as a storage space point simply near the wound for protection and to provide brand-new development. Decay hardly ever advances much past the pollard head.

Some people try to practice this on their Crepe Myrtles yet they do not have the strategy right nor do they typically start it on a young specimen. My suggestions is keep clear of it and leave it to an expert
