Height reduction of poplars at primary school

This recent job involved us working for a local primary school. They were worried about their row of Poplars originally planted as wind break along their park boundary. These trees had been left to grow tall and spindly with cases of branch break outs and large diameter deadwood present.

It was agreed that they should be reduce in height by approximately a third. This way it would remove the ‘sail affect’ and reduce the chances of stem failures. The result was a row of very neat, tidy and most importantly, safe Poplar trees!

We even received a lunchtime snack from Town and Country’s little helper!
