Macrocarpa Pollarding

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

got a Job where the Customer wants to severely Pollard his Monterey Cyprus. Anyone got experience with these? Says online; Pruning for Monterey Cyprus should be undertaken between April - August.

 

cheers H

You can pollard anything it will just look dreadful or die. As Steve says its a no.

They are pretty resilient to hard pruning though, as long as you leave decent growth points. They can look really good once ‘cleaned’ out in fairness. It can be a bitch of a job though as getting what you cut off down to the ground tends to be a massive hanger-fest...
