Pollarding

Pollarding a tree can be beneficial to our gardens for a wide range of reasons. It is an effective way to reduce the amount of shade cast by trees, it prevents trees from outgrowing their local environment and is often used in urban situations where trees might hinder neighbouring properties or overhead cables. Many different species of trees can be pollarded on a regular basis and in some cases it can be an effective way to rejuvenate a tree and to prolong its life.
