Our client asked our team of London tree surgeons to pollard this mimosa tree significantly in order to reset the crown and manage the re-growth at a lower level in the future. While pollarding a tree to this extent is a risk – the alternative was complete removal and the clients considered it a risk worth taking. However, on completion of the work we were very hopeful of a good outcome.
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.
