Pollarding (tree pruning) – an unusual and precision tree lopping & tree removal Barton method
First understand what this practice is as there are numerous types of bad tree pruning called pollarding (tree pruning), which is simply not the case, they are covering or tree lopping and covered later on.
Also it is essential you understand the varieties that it applies as well, not all trees can take it. Typically the varieties are deciduous (decrease leaves for winter season) and because pollarding (tree pruning) removes all growth it’s good to have a species that a minimum of has actually ended up being accustomed to being defoliated or the tree lopping. These deciduous trees save energy for the spring burst of leaves and shoots so they are much better able to recuperate from a 100% trim. A few of the appropriate varieties are willow, lime, ash, field maple, holly, hornbeam, oak, aircraft and beech. See something familiar? You don’t grow those up below! We‘re 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 an usual practice to start pollarding (tree pruning) at stem diameters 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 cut off any kind of collars or pollard heads, you cut just outside them. New stems grow from the pollard head. The trees need to have this repeated yearly or two. The original factor for this pruning was to keep a normal supply of timber and straw every year from the very same trees and to also consist of the dimension and form of trees. Correctly done to the right varieties does not seem to lower the lifespan providing it started at an early age.
The pollard heads are really difficult (woundwood) and also packed with energy as a storage space factor just near the wound for defence and to provide brand-new growth. Degeneration hardly ever breakthroughs a lot past the pollard head.
You’ll see some efforts at this but I can truthfully state the last time I saw an appropriate pollarded tree in real life was some twenty years ago in Adelaide, it was a London Aircraft tree. Some individuals attempt to practice this on their Crepe Myrtles but they don’t have the method right neither do they usually start it on a young specimen. My guidance is keep clear of it and leave it to a professional
