Pollarding (tree pruning) – a rare and accuracy tree lopping & tree removal Northgate method
Initially understand what this technique is as there are various forms of poor tree pruning called pollarding (tree pruning), which is just not the instance, they are topping or tree lopping and covered later.
Likewise it‘s important you understand the species that it applies also, not all trees can take it. Typically the species are deciduous (decrease leaves for winter months) and since pollarding (tree pruning) gets rid of all growth it’s good to have a species that at least has ended up being accustomed to being defoliated or the tree lopping. These deciduous trees save energy for the spring burst of fallen leaves and shoots so they are better able to recover from a 100% prune. Several of the suitable species are willow, lime, ash, area maple, holly, hornbeam, oak, airplane and beech. See something familiar? You don’t grow those up right here! We remain in a subtropical atmosphere not temperate.
Pollarding (tree pruning) is also begun on young trees, it’s not what you do to a fully grown tree. It’s an usual technique to start pollarding (tree pruning) at stem sizes of 75mm to 100mm.
Pollarding (tree pruning) is the removal of all stems back to their factor of beginning, the pollard head. You do not cut off any collars or pollard heads, you reduced just outside them. New stems grow from the pollard head. The trees need to have this duplicated each year or 2. The initial reason for this pruning was to maintain a normal supply of timber and fodder each year from the exact same trees and to also contain the size and kind of trees. Properly done to the ideal species doesn’t seem to reduce the life-span providing it started at a very early age.
The pollard heads are really difficult (woundwood) and also packed with energy as a storage factor just near the injury for defence and to supply brand-new growth. Decay hardly ever developments a lot past the pollard head.
You’ll see some attempts at this however I can honestly claim the last time I saw an appropriate pollarded tree in reality was some 20 years earlier in Adelaide, it was a London Plane tree. Some people try to practice this on their Crepe Myrtles however they don’t have the method right neither do they usually start it on a young sampling. My recommendations is keep clear of it and leave it to a specialist

Costs of tree removal and tree lopping reports rely on time and devices and so on. If we need to obtain lab analysis of tissue or soil, if we need to drill test, do root assessment, aerial assessment and so on.
