Pollarding is where the upper branches of a tree are removed leaving a smaller stubby-looking tree which will then produce a dense top of new growth.
New growth is usually removed each growth season producing the unique look shown in the image on the right. Pollarding is not that common a practice in New Zealand. It originated in Britain during medieval times. It is mainly used on street trees such as in Takapuna and Auckland CBD. Only certain species are suitable for this procedure. If the wrong species are used they will not survive. Contact us now for a free quote>
Due to the large percentage of the trees foliage that must be removed for pollarding you may require resource consent to do it on large trees. Please refer to our Tree Protection Laws section.
