Pollarding (tree pruning) – an uncommon and precision tree lopping & tree removal Downer method
Initially recognize what this method is as there are numerous types of negative tree pruning called pollarding (tree pruning), which is just not the instance, they are topping or tree lopping and covered later on.
Likewise it is very important you recognize the species that it applies also, not all trees can take it. Usually the species are deciduous (drop leaves for winter months) and due to the fact that pollarding (tree pruning) gets rid of all growth it’s great to have a species that a minimum of has ended up being accustomed to being defoliated or the tree lopping. These deciduous trees keep energy for the spring burst of leaves and shoots so they are better able to recuperate from a 100% trim. Some of the appropriate species are willow, lime, ash, area maple, holly, hornbeam, oak, airplane and beech. See something familiar? You do not grow those up below! We‘re in a subtropical environment not temperate.
Pollarding (tree pruning) is also commenced on young trees, it’s not what you do to a mature tree. It’s an usual method to start pollarding (tree pruning) at stem diameters of 75mm to 100mm.
Pollarding (tree pruning) is the removal of all stems back to their point of origin, the pollard head. You do not remove any kind of collars or pollard heads, you cut just outside them. New stems grow from the pollard head. The trees have to have this repeated annually or two. The original factor for this pruning was to keep a routine supply of timber and fodder each year from the exact same trees and to also contain the size and type of trees. Correctly done to the best species doesn’t appear to lower the life-span providing it began at an early age.
The pollard heads are very tough (woundwood) and also loaded with energy as a storage point just near the injury for support and to supply brand-new growth. Decay rarely advances a lot past the pollard head.
You’ll see some efforts at this yet I can truthfully state the last time I saw a proper pollarded tree in reality was some 20 years earlier in Adelaide, it was a London Aircraft tree. Some people attempt to exercise this on their Crepe Myrtles yet they do not have the method right neither do they generally start it on a young sampling. My suggestions is avoid it and leave it to a specialist
