Pollarding (tree pruning) – an uncommon and precision tree lopping & tree removal technique
First recognize what this practice is as there are countless kinds of negative tree pruning called pollarding (tree pruning), which is just not the situation, they are topping or tree lopping and covered later on.
Likewise it is essential you recognize the species that it applies as well, not all trees can take it. Typically the species are deciduous (decline leaves for winter months) and due to the fact that pollarding (tree pruning) gets rid of all growth it’s great to have a types that at the very least has actually ended up being familiar with being defoliated or the tree lopping. These deciduous trees keep power for the spring ruptured of leaves and shoots so they are better able to recuperate from a 100% trim. Several of the appropriate species are willow, lime, ash, field maple, holly, hornbeam, oak, aircraft and beech. See something familiar? You do not expand those up below! We‘re in a subtropical setting not temperate.
Pollarding (tree pruning) is also commenced on young trees, it’s not what you do to a mature tree. It’s a common practice to commence pollarding (tree pruning) at stem diameters of 75mm to 100mm.
pollarding (tree pruning) is the removal of all stems back to their point of origin, the pollard head. You do not cut off any kind of collars or pollard heads, you reduced just outside them. New stems expand from the pollard head. The trees have to have this repeated yearly or two. The original factor for this pruning was to maintain a normal supply of timber and straw every year from the very same trees and to also include the dimension and type of trees. Correctly done to the best species does not appear to reduce the lifespan providing it began at an early age.
The pollard heads are really tough (woundwood) and also filled with power as a storage space point just near the wound for protection and to supply new growth. Decay rarely advances a lot past the pollard head.
You’ll see some attempts at this however I can truthfully claim the last time I saw a correct pollarded tree in reality was some 20 years back in Adelaide, it was a London Airplane tree. Some individuals attempt to exercise this on their Crepe Myrtles however they do not have the technique right neither do they typically begin it on a young sampling. My recommendations is avoid it and leave it to an expert
