Lime Pollard – Findern, Derby

Lime Pollard, Findern

Three previously pollarded Lime trees needed pruning again. When Lime trees are pollarded they begin to send out copious amounts of epicormic growth. Usually this process needs repeating every 2/3 years. – Tree Species – Common Lime (Tilia x europaea) Location – Findern, Derby Images © Gardenscape – Photos

TPO Lime Tree, Littleover

TPO Lime Tree Littleover @ Gardenscape Derby 03

We spent a day sorting out this messy Lime tree in a garden in Littleover. An application by our customer had been submitted and given the go ahead to reduce canopy up to 2 metres and lift crown up to 3 metres. The most tedious part of the job was the the huge amount of epicormic growth the tree had given out on the trunk …

We successfully applied for a 5 metre lift on them. We took the lift to the horizon level still leaving the trees with shape. It looks tidier and gives the impression the garden is bigger. We applied …

Leylandii Removal, Stenson Fields

Leylandii Removal, Stenson Fields 002

We removed a fairly large Leylandii tree from a small garden in Stenson Fields. The tree was clearly far to big for its space and very close to a neighbouring house. The tree base had already begun lifting the surrounding fencing. It was around 30ft in height with quite a large base. It isn’t a good idea to plant Leylandii trees so close to houses …

30ft Lime Tree Removal, Mickleover

30ft Lime Tree Removal, Mickleover 04

A 30ft Lime tree removal in Mickleover this morning. The tree itself is around 40 years old, but has been pollarded during its lifetime hence the reason it’s only around 30ft, but has a large trunk below the pollard. Our customer was fed up with the regular maintenance, so he wanted the tree taking down leaving around 4ft of the trunk to make into a …

Here are two hedges we have just completed in Mickleover, Derby. One was a Beech hedge in the front garden and a largish Leylandii hedge at the rear. The top of the Leylandii towards the back had 2/3 years growth, which was considerably thicker in diameter and the stems had to be cut individually with a saw and fed through the chipper. The rest of …
