Tree Pollarding in Cardiff
GET IN TOUCH
Here at City Tree Surgeons we cut back certain trees in this way to stop them shading other vegetation or to downsize them because their size has, or will become a hazard if they are not reduced. We can help advise you about which trees you can cut back using this tree pruning technique and we will always advise if we feel a tree you have selected is not suited to this type of surgery.
Whatever your reasons for tree pollarding in Cardiff it can be a great system to prolong a trees life and spark new fresh growth into your South Glamorgan garden.
Benefits of Tree Pollarding
You might be having doubts about whether to have your tree pollarded or not; here’s a list of what tree pollarding does:
Revitalise particular trees and shrubs
Tree pollarding in Cardiff offers the benefit of removing any rotting or diseased branches, dead branches that could eventually become a hazard to the property. Thus, It allows the tree’s life force to flow into the viable parts of the tree by thinning out spindly branches or large branches with little strength.
Promote healthy plant growth beneath the tree
While unpollarded trees and shrubs in Cardiff may give you shade during summer, they may not promote growth. Thinning and pollarding of trees allows fresh air to circulate and sunlight to reach the ground. As a result, plants grow faster, and the garden looks more spacious.
Increase foliage coverage at lower levels
Pollarding keeps new growth at a lower level. Landscape architects understand the importance of height in gardening. This can drastically change the outcome of your space.

I only scored City Tree Surgeons 10 in all fields because it wouldn’t let me score any higher. To say that we are delighted with the work carried out would be an understatement and I can’t recommend City Tree Surgeons highly enough. I chose them because of the work they carried out on my neighbours trees, they’re also working on my next door but one neighbours trees as well. I will use no one else apart from City Tree Surgeons to carry out tree work in my garden in the future
I can’t fault City Tree Surgeons , from the first visit to completing the work Henri was very helpful, extremely informative and professional, the work was done with skill and care on our 500 year old horse chestnut and the clean up was thorough, you wouldn’t know they had been. I would highly recommend City Tree Surgeons .
I was very happy with the work done. They were quick, accurate and thoughtful. They cleared up after themselves, so much so that the garden was much more tidy than when they arrived! They worked very hard in extremely humid conditions but didn’t even stop for a break. I would be very happy to use City Tree Surgeons again and I thought their rates were very competitive
Add garden space
Uncontrolled tree growth may result in reduced garden space which affects the enjoyment and value of your garden.
Adjust tree’s balance
High winds can pose a hazard to trees with heavy tops, so tree pollarding in Cardiff is recommended. Taking steps to protect tree canopy from wind and weather can significantly reduce the chances of trees failing or lopping over your neighbour’s fence.
Protect your trees and shrubs from third-party services
Electricity lines, phone cables, street lightings, and such may affect and infer your tree’s growth, and pollarding would be the best option to protect your trees from these third-party services.
