Pollarding pruning is where a tree has had it's top branches cut back to the trunk so that it may produce a dense growth of new shoots.
A more general explanation is the regular pruning back of small branches to the same point.
Pollarded trees usually require regular treatment to re-growth areas.
Pollarding is a way of pruning in which the upper branches of a tree are systematically removed, thus promoting a thicker dense head of foliage and branches which is primarily used to maintain trees at a predetermined height.
Traditionally, trees were pollarded for several reasons: for fodder to feed livestock, or for wood to burn or put to other uses.
The greatest advantage of pollarding tree's is that pollarded trees tend to live longer than un-pollarded specimens because they are maintained in a partially juvenile state, and thus they do not have the excess weight and windage from the top part of the tree.
