Pollarding (tree pruning) – an uncommon and precision tree lopping & tree removal Holmview approach
First recognize what this practice is as there are countless types of bad tree pruning called pollarding (tree pruning), which is just not the situation, they are topping or tree lopping and covered later.
Likewise it is necessary you recognize the species that it applies as well, not all trees can take it. Usually the species are deciduous (decline leaves for winter season) and due to the fact that pollarding (tree pruning) removes all development it’s good to have a types that a minimum of has actually come to be accustomed to being defoliated or the tree lopping. These deciduous trees store energy for the springtime ruptured of leaves and fires so they are better able to recuperate from a 100% trim. Several of the suitable species are willow, lime, ash, field maple, holly, hornbeam, oak, airplane and beech. See something familiar? You do not expand those up right here! We‘re in a subtropical environment not temperate.
Pollarding (tree pruning) is additionally commenced on young trees, it’s not what you do to a fully grown tree. It’s a typical practice to begin 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 remove any kind of collars or pollard heads, you cut just outside them. New stems expand from the pollard head. The trees have to have this duplicated yearly or two. The original reason for this pruning was to maintain a routine supply of wood and straw every year from the exact same trees and to additionally consist of the dimension and kind of trees. Appropriately done to the appropriate species doesn’t seem to reduce the life-span supplying it began at an early age.
The pollard heads are extremely hard (woundwood) and additionally packed with energy as a storage point just near the wound for protection and to supply new development. Decay seldom advances much past the pollard head.

Some people try to practice this on their Crepe Myrtles yet they do not have the strategy right neither do they generally start it on a young specimen. My guidance is keep clear of it and leave it to an expert
