Safety should always be a top priority when it comes to managing trees on your property. One homeowner in Lenham recently faced serious concerns regarding an ash tree on their premises. Large branches were consistently falling off, posing a risk to both people and property. The situation reached a breaking point when a 10-inch thick branch came crashing down, damaging the building underneath. It was clear that immediate action was needed to address this potentially dangerous situation.
At Tree Pro Ltd, we understand the importance of preserving trees whenever possible. This is why we recommended the pollard option for this particular ash tree. Pollarding is a pruning technique that involves removing the upper branches of a tree to promote regrowth from the main trunk. By intervening with the tree’s growth pattern, we can reduce the risk of falling branches, while also ensuring that the tree has the opportunity to thrive in a controlled manner.
One of the advantages of pollarding is that it allows the tree to regrow in a more compact and sturdy form. By regularly pruning the upper branches every few years, we can prevent the tree from becoming top-heavy, which often leads to branch breakage during storms or periods of high winds. This proactive approach not only safeguards your property but also provides the ash tree with a chance to rejuvenate and continue its growth cycle.
