Pollarding in a tricky environment

Below are a couple of photos showing one of our teams pollarding some large Poplars in the high winds last week.

These trees were awkwardly positioned over 3 different gardens and most of the brash and timber had to be rigged out and lowered onto an adjacent cul-de-sac to avoid damage to our customer and their neighbours gardens.

 

Willow Tree Pollarding

Mr Frost rang Steve to look at his trees and to advise him on what to do with them and to see if their general condition was OK. He and Steve then agreed a date for us to do some work on the trees.

Mr Frost’s trees have been pollarded several times in the past and were ready for them to be done again. Whilst working on one of the willow trees, that had also been pollarded in the past, we noticed quite a substantial amount of rotting wounds from the previous work. At this point we advised our customer that the branches should be taken back further than the previous cut points, so that all of the rotting wood was removed from the tree.

Whilst working on all the other trees in his garden we assessed them for damage and advised accordingly. One tree was removed completely.

Pollarding in Darley Abbey

Our customer in Darley Abbey wanted some trees pollarding and removing.

They were very happy with the work and had the following to say:

Very polite, hardworking and did an excellent job.
