Controlling the size of trees
Pollarding is a hard pruning method that we use to manage the size of a tree. In past times, this process was used as a means of providing food for grazing animals, many of whom used to dine on shrubs and leaves of small trees before ‘domestication’.
Nowadays, a Furlonger Tree Services, will use the same technique as a means of keeping the size of street trees in Surrey and South West London under control.
Not all species of tree will respond well to pollarding. Much like other pruning methods, consideration must be taken to the time of year, age of a tree, as well as whether it has undergone pollarding before.
Trees that respond well to coppicing, will also respond to pollarding well, since it is essentially the same process except that pollarding takes place in the canopy whereas coppicing occurs at just above ground level.
Trees that have been subject to this process in the past will need pollarding every few years, as regrowth dictates
