Traditionally, and still commonly used, this term describes the removal of all branches from the trunk. A less frequently used definition can mean the regular (annual or biannual) pruning back of small branches to the same point resulting in the formation of a ‘pollard head’. Pollarding is a popular way of preventing too much growth, especially on Willow, Poplar and Eucalyptus trees and is also an effective way of treating a damaged tree.

Pollarding – A Case Study

This Oak tree was pollarded in order to try to save it as it had a massive amount of dead wood which was also diseased. This disease would have eventually spread to the rest of the tree, killing it. We used a chainsaw to cut back all of the limbs to a point where the wood was healthy, at the same time trying to keep as natural a shape as possible to the crown of the tree.
