Weeping Willow Pollarded – Sheffield

Large Weeping Willow Sheffield
Our customer had a large Weeping Willow that was situated close to the Riverbank. They called us in to reduce the size of the Willow tree.  They wanted to improve the view in their garden and open up a view of the river.

The Weeping Willow was around 80 years old and around 65ft tall.  We decided the best method of pruning for this tree would be pollarding. Pollarding is reducing the length of branches to major trunks.  This encourages younger growth.

Pollarding a Willow Tree

We recommend that a tree of this size should get pollarding maintenance every 5-6 years. Weeping Wilow trees are fast growing and will re-sprout after hard pruning in the spring.  These trees have an affinity to water so caution should be used if planting in proximity to domestic water pipes or house foundations as can cause subsidence.
