Pollarding Services in Essex
Pollarding is the removal of all branches back to ‘knuckles’ of an established framework. Often carried out on trees such as Willow, Poplar, Lime and Ash.
Pollarding is best started on young trees as young wood responds rapidly to wounding reducing the risk of decay. Initially the tree is grown to the desired height and branch framework.
Once pollarded it is important to continue the cycle of cutting. The weight and angle of the new branches can lead to renewed weakness, particularly where many branches are crowded together.
Although having a tree pollarded regularly may be expensive, a lapsed pollard tree may require future surgery removing larger parts of the tree at a greater height.
Branches should be cut above the previous pollarding cuts, to avoid exposing older wood, which may be at an increased risk of decay. In some cases it is preferable to leave some living branches intact or to cut above a side branch. It is important to know what each tree will respond to.
Carringtons are available for emergency call outs such as making safe of a tree, possibly caused by storm damage, and removing any limbs etc. that may harm property or be a danger to the public.
At the earliest suitable time, we will return to complete the necessary work.
Whether it’s to totally remove the tree from site, or maybe to reshape the crown, depending on the extent of the damage, we will do what is best for the tree and the client, as always.
