Lime Tree Pollarding London
We often get requests for Lime Tree Pollarding as they are popular street trees in London and many other cities. 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, Furlonger Tree Services’ Tree Surgeons will use the same technique as a means of keeping the size of street trees in Surrey and South West London under control. Lime Trees (Tilia sp.) grow reasonably quickly so we were called in to re-pollard these 8 trees at the front of a property in London.
TPO (Tree Preservation Order) consent was granted from the council, so Tom could get to work, safely and efficiently removing the past few years growth. As an expanding company, it also provided our trainee Kieran an opportunity to refine his climbing skills.
In line with our increasingly environmentally friendly policy, we were happy to be able to ‘recycle’ many of the branches, with tool company Jardin de France (https://www.jardin-defrance.com/) taking branches away to demonstrate the effectiveness of their loppers and secateurs at a local show.
We are always looking for innovative ways to make use of the arisings from our work, whether it be cord wood, logs for firewood, branches for crafts or sawdust or woodchip.
As always we left a happy customer with a spotless site, and increased light for a few more years!
So whether you need a hedge trimming in Dorking, a tree removal in Reigate, a tree reduction in Epsom, tree pruning, tree cutting or stump removal across the South East and Southwest London– call us today!

“I called Furlonger Tree Services about a dead Beech tree in the front of my property. The tree was dangerous and leaning over a main road therefore had to be taken down with great care. A crane was required to take the tree down in sections. Tom organised the crane and all permits with the council. The team were efficient, friendly and carried out the work without fault. I was really impressed with the work and would definitely recommend and use them again myself.”
