the ivy will now gointo rapid growth mode and out compete the beech regrowth, I suggest you remove at least half the ivy to allow light into cambium and stop it out competing new growth.

 

if the ivy isnt dealt with to some extent this is now a monolith rather than a pollard, this tree will die.

 

prove me wrong and get shots of its progress, im very interested, and hoping it survives and proves me wrong.

the ivy was left but i'm told the owner wants it removed now, sub-contracted job so didn't deal with customer mate, but did suggest it to be removed but was told to leave, will get some photos next year for you mate.:thumbup1:
