Tree pollarding in London

Our London client Fullers asked us to pollard this London Plane tree outside one of their pubs. Thirsty work!

What is pollarding?

Pollarding is a tree pruning method in which the upper branches of a tree are removed. It promotes a dense head of foliage and branches. Pollarding goes back to medieval times, and today it is mainly done in urban areas to maintain trees at a particular height.

  • 5 star review  We commissioned Evoke to top the trees in our garden and shape as they had had many years of unchecked growth. Evoke was a pleasure to work with, they made the process very easy and their team were efficient and very polite on the day. I am very pleased with the work and would happily recommend them. Thank you!

  • 5 star review  We would highly recommend this very professional team. We had a very large, overbearing larch tree which needed to be removed and asked a number of companies for quotes. Evoke not only came in with the best quote but we were very impressed with the skill levels shown and as we watched as the tree was taken down, we saw a team who obviously looked after their tools and vehicles extremely well, worked with safety always at the forefront, communicated well and did an extremely efficient job finishing with everything cleaned and tidied up. We would have no hesitation in using them again.

  • 5 star review  These guys are incredible. Prompt response to request for quote, very good pricing and extremely professional job. We had a tree removed and stump ground out plus three trees staked. As others have said you wouldn't know they had been except for the missing tree and now upright smaller trees! Brilliant service - thoroughly recommend and will be doing so to anyone that cares to listen :-) Thanks Billy and Kate and the team!
