Pollarding (tree pruning) – an uncommon and accuracy tree lopping & tree removal Hackett technique
First comprehend what this technique is as there are countless types of bad tree pruning called pollarding (tree pruning), which is merely not the case, they are topping or tree lopping and covered later on.
Additionally it is very important you comprehend the species that it applies too, not all trees can take it. Normally the species are deciduous (drop leaves for wintertime) and since pollarding (tree pruning) gets rid of all growth it’s great to have a varieties that a minimum of has become familiar with being defoliated or the tree lopping. These deciduous trees keep energy for the springtime burst of fallen leaves and fires so they are much better able to recover from a 100% trim. Several of the suitable species are willow, lime, ash, field maple, holly, hornbeam, oak, plane and beech. See something acquainted? You do not expand those up here! We remain in a subtropical environment not temperate.
Pollarding (tree pruning) is additionally commenced on young trees, it’s not what you do to a fully grown tree. It’s a typical technique to commence pollarding (tree pruning) at stem sizes of 75mm to 100mm.
Pollarding (tree pruning) is the removal of all stems back to their point of beginning, the pollard head. You do not remove any type of collars or pollard heads, you cut just outside them. New stems expand from the pollard head. The trees have to have this repeated each year or 2. The original factor for this pruning was to maintain a regular supply of timber and fodder yearly from the exact same trees and to additionally contain the size and type of trees. Appropriately done to the ideal species does not seem to decrease the life-span offering it began at a very early age.
The pollard heads are extremely difficult (woundwood) and additionally filled with energy as a storage space point just near the injury for support and to provide new growth. Degeneration hardly ever breakthroughs much past the pollard head.
You’ll see some efforts at this but I can truthfully state the last time I saw a proper pollarded tree in the real world was some two decades ago in Adelaide, it was a London Airplane tree. Some individuals attempt to practice this on their Crepe Myrtles but they do not have the technique right nor do they usually start it on a young sampling. My advice is avoid it and leave it to an expert
