Your Trusted Local Specialists For Tree Pollarding in Cambridge
Pollarding has evolved from the ancient practice of Coppicing where by trees were routinely cut down to ground level so that they would re-shoot, this was and still is a form of farming trees and is still widely practiced in Cambridgeshire and all over the U.K.
The Key Difference Between Tree Pollarding & Tree Coppicing
The difference between a Pollard and a Coppice is that Coppice’s are cut to ground level whilst Pollards are cut to a height over 2metres tall, this became so because the woodland animals were eating the young fresh growth from the coppice’s and so the woodcutters decided to put the fresh growth out of their reach…………and so the Pollard was invented.
