Tree pollarding is a tree maintenance technique that involves the removal of smaller branches, shoots, and upper sections of trees, allowing for the proper management and health of trees on your property. Annual tree-pollarding services may be suitable depending on the tree species and your desired garden layout.

Sean removed 2 very large trees for me in my garden in Luton. He was able to get me a quote quickly and was very reasonable. I don’t think you will find anyone who can do these works more cost efficiently. Works were done quickly and the garden left in a tidy state after all the messy work carried out. I would highly recommend Sean and would definitely use again.

I was very impressed with Sean from the very beginning, he advised us straight away on the best way forward to reduce our trees helping us gain more light into our conservatory. It was left very tidy after they had finished, and Sean and his team were extremely friendly throughout, worth every penny! Would definitely use again !

Pollarding of a tree

Pollarding FAQs

Tree pollarding can commence once trees or shrubs have achieved the desired height. Our team of skilled tree surgeons and arborists will ensure that your trees or shrubs are pollarded to maintain an attractive and functional appearance. Typically, shrubs are cut to the preferred height, allowing numerous stems to sprout from the top, while trees are more likely to be trimmed into a single trunk supporting several branches.

When executed correctly, pollarding will not negatively affect the overall health of a tree.

Indeed, a pollarded tree will regenerate. Optimal outcomes are attained through continuous pollarding, as each session encourages healthier and more aesthetically pleasing growth.

Pollarding is believed to extend the lifespan of trees by maintaining them in a more youthful state. Additionally, it reduces the weight of the tree’s upper portion, decreasing the likelihood of damage that could potentially lead to the tree’s demise.

The cost of a pollarding project varies based on its scope and intricacy. Our team will evaluate the task and provide a no-obligation estimate, allowing you to make an informed decision with the necessary information at hand.
