Pollarding is best carried out once the tree or trees have reached the size you want them to be. Pollarding can then be done in a three or four year cycle thus maintaining the tree at a certain size. This avenue of lime trees was much bigger once, but were heavily pollarded by a previous firm. The current owners are now keen to keep the trees at a more manageable size.
