Pollarding is a technique whereby a tree is trimmed and cut back well below its natural size, in order to promote healthy growth and manageability.
It is a very common practice and many trees in the Norwich and Norfolk area need to be regularly maintained. Trees are pollarded to stop them growing too far outside their natural boundary , for instance if near a property or public footpath.
Tree pollarding can be for aesthetic reasons, to keep parks and footpaths tidy, but can also be used as a renewable source of wood. AM Ground Maintenance will advise as to when and how often to do this work. Our expert arborists are proficient in all areas of tree pollarding and will gladly help you with any questions you may have. Furthermore, all tree work is carried out to British Standards BS3998 2010.
