This is a pruning system that involves the removal of the upper branches of a tree, to promote a dense head of foliaged branches.

It is normally started once a tree or shrub reaches a desired height, and annual pollarding is recommended as it will restrict the plant/tree to the height you want.


When do I pollard a tree?

  • When a tree or shrub reaches a desired height.

  • To help the tree last longer than a naturally grown tree.

  • If a tree has been previously pollarded.
