Pollarding (tree pruning) – an uncommon and precision tree lopping & tree removal method
First recognize what this practice is as there are many types of negative tree pruning called pollarding (tree pruning), which is merely not the instance, they are covering or tree lopping and covered later.
Likewise it‘s important you recognize the types that it applies as well, not all trees can take it. Normally the types are deciduous (decline leaves for winter months) and because pollarding (tree pruning) eliminates all development it’s great to have a types that a minimum of has actually become familiar with being defoliated or the tree lopping. These deciduous trees store power for the springtime ruptured of fallen leaves and fires so they are much better able to recover from a 100% trim. A few of the suitable types are willow, lime, ash, area maple, holly, hornbeam, oak, plane and beech. See something acquainted? You don’t grow those up below! We remain in a subtropical setting not temperate.
Pollarding (tree pruning) is also started on young trees, it’s not what you do to a fully grown tree. It’s a common practice to start pollarding (tree pruning) at stem sizes of 75mm to 100mm.
pollarding (tree pruning) is the removal of all stems back to their factor of origin, the pollard head. You do not remove any collars or pollard heads, you reduced just outside them. New stems grow from the pollard head. The trees need to have this duplicated annually or more. The initial reason for this pruning was to keep a normal supply of timber and fodder yearly from the exact same trees and to also include the dimension and kind of trees. Correctly done to the right types does not appear to lower the life expectancy providing it began at an early age.
The pollard heads are really hard (woundwood) and also loaded with power as a storage space factor just near the wound for defence and to supply new development. Decay seldom developments much past the pollard head.

Some individuals attempt to exercise this on their Crepe Myrtles however they don’t have the method right neither do they usually start it on a young sampling. My advice is avoid it and leave it to a professional
