Whatever your reasons for pollarding it can be a great system to prolong a trees life and spark new, fresh growth. Contact us for a Free Pollarding Quotation and to discuss a range of affordable options to ensure that you get the best value on the market and always work within your budget.

Typically trees that are a good choice to pollard are:

Oak – Ash – Elm – Willow – Elder – Lime – Eucalyptus 

Pollarding or ‘to pollard’ can be desired for many reasons including: encouraging new growth, keeping trees a required size, or on occasions to harvest the branches for animal fodder or be used for various crafts like weaving or to create fencing.

The Whitburn Tree Surgeon can help advise you about which trees you can cut-back using this pollarding method and we will always advise if we feel a tree you have selected is not suited to this type of surgery.

Important Considerations Regarding A Tree Surgeon For Healthy Trees

The importance of trees and proper tree care:
Trees play an important role in a healthy environment. They beautify our surroundings and are very important for the healthy breathing. They need proper care and maintenance and for that we need to employ well trained tree surgeon specialist.

Services provided by a tree surgeon: Whitburn

Tree surgeons provide a number of services. They are called surgeons because they need to perform surgery on trees. They cut down the extra outgrowths, trim the trees, and take out the infected parts, spray medicines on diseased and fungus affected parts. It is important to destroy them before they damage the whole forests and their surroundings. They also spray pesticides for the removal of insects and molds which may harm the forests.
They have to do this at high personal risk because these infected trees may harm them as well. By passing off in those pesticides may prove disastrous. Above all, plant specialists should be highly skilled to cut different branches of the plants in such dimensions that they do not block the view of the people. 

The principal points to know close to plant surgery: Whitburn

1. When a surgeon comes out to perform operation, he must have proper equipment for the operation. This is significant for the care of the garden and forests.
2. On that point are some plants which are ill, at first try to deliver them if not possible then cut them down. This is because they can harm the surrounding vegetation as well.
