Tree Pollarding Wickford
Sometimes tree pollarding is the only solution for retaining a tree that has outgrown a given area. If you want to keep a tree but don’t want the canopy to continue to take over the space, we will recommend tree pollarding. Wickford wide we’ve carried out this service, particularly on public land such as avenues and around built up areas.
What is Tree Pollarding? Wickford Tree Surgeons Explain.
In Wickford, tree pollarding is usually carried out as a last resort. It involves pruning the upper branches of a tree to promote a dense head of foliage and branches. The entire tree crown is removed leaving only the main trunk. Pollarding trees is popular along roadsides to stop the canopies overhanging roads and causing issues with tall vehicles and properties.
Tree pollarding has been used since medieval times and is now most popular in urban to maintain trees at a set height. Pollarded trees grow at a slow rate, with narrower growth rings in the years immediately after cutting.
