What you need to know about tree pollarding from Take A Bough

Tree pollarding is a pruning system of tree cutting where the upper branches of a tree are removed, promoting a dense head of foliage and branches. Pollarding trees 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.

As part of our complete range of tree services our professional London tree surgeons will be able to advise you about the types of trees that do well as pollards, these include broadleaved species such as beeches, oaks, maples, horse chestnuts, limes and London plane trees, a few conifers such as yews are also suitable.

Customer review for our pollarding service

Wondering whether we’re right for you? Below is a 5-star Google review Take A Bough received for our pollarding service:

We have used Take a Bough previously to remove a tree. This time Toby and the team came out to pollard a couple of our trees. Once again they did a great job. Turned up when they said they would. Very efficient and polite. And did a fantastic job of clearing up afterwards. Once again, I would highly recommend them.

We take great pride in offering the best local tree services around, and this is just one of many hugely positive reviews we receive from our clients.
