Tree Lopping Specialists

Tree lopping or sometimes referred to as pollarding are not recommend practices. In most cases better outcomes can be achieved. Most people choose lopping as they understandably, but mistakenly believe it will save them money. In most if not all cases, the exact opposite is true. When a tree is lopped, it goes into shock, starved of its food supply and ability to function, it then produces forced (Epicormic) shoots or growth. This forced growth has an unnaturally weak attachment to the tree. These soon become limbs and will end up dangerous. Lopping also results in opening up the tree to the elements as well as pests and diseases, which places the tree in an unbalanced state as its roots to canopy ratio has been destroyed. We can advise and discuss your options at quoting stage. Sometimes lopping can be the only option, especially if it has been lopped previously.
