Tree Pollarding in Hitchin by Waterman Tree Co – Pollarding is the removal is when trees are pruned back nearly to the stem, enabling them to produce a dense mass of branches. it’s a heavy form of pruning and although it has a place in the world of tree surgery, however, it is not something that we widely recommend.

It is sometimes done for aesthetic purposes and/or to keep a beloved tree from outgrowing its bounds, preventing removal, however, once a tree has been pollarded, it is good practice to re-pollard at regular intervals throughout the life of the tree. If left unmanaged, trees that have been pollarded can often fail due to the increased regrowth from one point. A regular maintenance schedule should be put in place to prevent the chance of failure.
