    Pollarding, also known as “lopping” or “topping” has been found to be mentioned as far back as Roman times, when Propertius (a Latin Poet) mentioned it during the 1st century BCE.

In the modern world, pollarding is a method of trimming trees to control their shape and size and for aesthetic purposes.

    Pollarding should be done by a professional arborist who knows how and where to cut the tree, without causing any damage to its health.

A pollarded tree will mean its branches are cut back nearly to the trunk, creating quite a bare, lollipop look.
