Tree and Shrub Pollarding in London

Pollarding is a pruning technique used by tree surgeons to keep trees and shrubs at a manageable height .

PollardingIt is the process of removing the branches of a tree back to the trunk, leaving just three to five short branches. The technique is commonly used on Ash, Limes, Elms, Oaks, Eucalyptus and London Plane Trees. Take a look at our Portfolio.

Pollarding needs to be done annually and is normally carried out in late winter or early spring depending on the species of tree. Pollarding should be avoided in Autumn as this can lead to fungal decay.
