the job...

Two years ago our London tree surgeons were asked to remove these very mature Bay trees from a front garden in Balham. We discussed the issues they created for our clients and agreed that the best solution would be to pollard them. This allowed out clients to keep their magnificent specimen trees but solved the problems of restricted light and debris they had caused. Our tree surgery teams return at two yearly intervals to shape and contain the re-growth.

About Tree Pollarding

Pollarding is a pruning system where the upper branches of a tree are removed, promoting a dense head of foliage and branches. It has been common in Europe since medieval times and is practised today in urban areas worldwide including in London, primarily to maintain trees at a predetermined height.

"We always arrange for Toby to come once a year to cut back overhanging tree branches and a big ivy hedge on our house. "
