 pollarding: ( Pruning Technique ) 

Pollarding was historically used to generate shoots for fuel, shelter, and various products due to the abundance of adventitious sprouts that a tree produces in this process.


This system should be started when the tree is very young by making heading cuts through stems and branches no more than about three years old or so.


Ash, Beach, Catalpa, Elm, Maple, Oak are just a few of the tree species that are known to tolerate pollarding.
