Pollarding (tree pruning) – an uncommon and precision tree lopping & tree removal method
First recognize what this method is as there are countless forms of negative tree pruning called pollarding (tree pruning), which is simply not the instance, they are topping or tree lopping and covered later.
Also it‘s important you recognize the species that it applies too, not all trees can take it. Usually the species are deciduous (drop leaves for wintertime) and because pollarding (tree pruning) removes all growth it’s great to have a species that a minimum of has become familiar with being defoliated or the tree lopping. These deciduous trees keep energy for the springtime burst of leaves and shoots so they are better able to recover from a 100% trim. Several of the ideal species 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 also commenced on young trees, it’s not what you do to a mature tree. It’s a common method 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 type of collars or pollard heads, you reduced just outside them. New stems grow from the pollard head. The trees need to have this repeated annually or more. The initial factor for this pruning was to keep a routine supply of wood and straw every year from the very same trees and to also consist of the size and kind of trees. Correctly done to the right species doesn’t seem to reduce the lifespan giving it started at an early age.
The pollard heads are very tough (woundwood) and also filled with energy as a storage space factor just near the wound for support and to provide brand-new growth. Degeneration seldom developments much past the pollard head.
You’ll see some attempts at this but I can truthfully state the last time I saw a correct pollarded tree in the real world was some two decades ago in Adelaide, it was a London Plane tree. Some individuals try to exercise this on their Crepe Myrtles but they do not have the method right nor do they generally start it on a young specimen. My advice is avoid it and leave it to a professional
