25th October – Pollarding

Why pollarding? 


Well you find a tree with about 3 years growth, because it gives a nice balance of thin canes and logs and rubbish. 


You quite often find the trees are rotten inside so couldn’t take the weight of full growth anyway. 


And so the young growth is down, and the trunk neatly trimmed ready to start the 3 year cycle again.
