Here is a couple Robinia’s that we have pollarded in Strathmore.

This is the second time that we’ve done them now and each year they get at least 3-5 metres of growth. By pruning them every year, we’re only making small cuts on the trees. By only making small cuts, we reduce the risk of pest and disease. Its also a good way to manage the size of a tree. Can’t wait to see how they go next year!
