Pollarding (tree pruning) – an unusual and precision tree lopping & tree removal Stretton technique
Initially comprehend what this technique is as there are many types of bad tree pruning called pollarding (tree pruning), which is merely not the situation, they are topping or tree lopping and covered later on.
Additionally it‘s important you comprehend the species that it uses also, not all trees can take it. Typically the species are deciduous (decrease leaves for wintertime) and due to the fact that pollarding (tree pruning) gets rid of all growth it’s great to have a species that at least has come to be accustomed to being defoliated or the tree lopping. These deciduous trees store energy for the spring burst of fallen leaves and fires so they are much better able to recuperate from a 100% prune. Some of the appropriate species are willow, lime, ash, field maple, holly, hornbeam, oak, plane and beech. See something acquainted? You do not 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 mature tree. It’s an usual technique to commence 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 cut off any kind of collars or pollard heads, you reduced simply outside them. New stems grow from the pollard head. The trees need to have this duplicated yearly or 2. The initial reason for this pruning was to maintain a routine supply of wood and straw annually from the same trees and to also consist of the dimension and type of trees. Correctly done to the right species doesn’t appear to decrease the life-span providing it commenced at a very early age.
The pollard heads are really difficult (woundwood) and also filled with energy as a storage point simply near the wound for protection and to provide brand-new growth. Degeneration hardly ever advancements a lot past the pollard head.

Some individuals attempt to practice this on their Crepe Myrtles yet they do not have the method right neither do they normally begin it on a young specimen. My guidance is keep clear of it and leave it to a professional
