    Common lime

    Hi All, looking for thoughts re these two common limes, regarding the very left lean. would a full removal be required? thanks all.
  2. 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
  3. As per title, I've cut a large branch (6inch diameter) off a Sycamore Maple at the branch collar. The tree is taller than a terraced house. I'm now aware I've done pretty much every no-no in the book cutting at spring, further than the collar and a large branch. I'd like to know what the risks of damage are to the tree and if there's anything I can do to help it heal, and prevent disease or death(?!) Thanks very much in advance.
  4. Can a mature whitebeam tree be pollarded? Have a large tree that needs reducing in size and wondering whether it can be reduced by pollarding? Hearing that in some cases they don't take we'll to hard-pruning, and then some say they respond well. Any advice would be great!
  5. Hello all, hoping that someone on the forum might have knowledge of an exaple of a lapsed pollard 15-25yrs being brought back into cycle. I have for many years observed street tree avenues (mostly London planes) which were once pollarded on a regular cycle (unsure of the exact frequency), but which have in the last 15-30yrs not been so intensely managed and other than some minor branch reductions (presumably in response to complaints - reactive work) have not been regularly attended to. I have seen examples in many towns and cities in the UK (where I went to high school and college) and in various parts of Australia (where I lived for 26yrs). Now I am in NZ (just outside Auckland) I pass along numerous very beautiful double avenues of London planes but know that their current growth cannot be left unmanaged for another 20yrs. I am on the board of the Auckland Tree Council and want to find any examples of similar trees for which the process of bringing them back into a pollard cycle has been attempted. At some point the municipal authority is going to have to address the long term management of these avenues hence my interest. I will put up some pictures of various streets to illustrate the issues but I am sure that this a topic that many of you are familiar with.
  6. Hi guys my neighbour had her London Plane tree pollarded 2-3 months ago. There are no signs of new growth anywhere on the tree. Its an old one, I don't know the DBH exactly but i would guess at just over a metre. I read that one shouldnt pollard mature or old trees, not sure whether thats nonsense or not. Any help or ideas? I fear the poor old thing may have suffered a lot!
  7. Hi 2 all of you, this is my first post on this fine website! Just wondered if anyone could let me know how well False acacia responds to pollarding/pruning? And how long a Robinia is likely to live(yes i know it'll be a ball park figure but any idea would be appreciated). Asking as i have a couple of big'ns in me garden(50ft plus) which i want to try to tidy up, i've only worked on one before and that was a ground level prune. Any help is helpful. cheers. .
