Pollard Oak

Pollard Oak is wood from trees that have been “pollarded”. This is the process pruning the top branches of a tree to promote denser regrowth of branches and foliage. This helps the tree live longer and prevent damage from the wind or excess weight at the top of the tree.
The word “Pollard” comes from the word “Poll” which means the top of the head, and eventually “to poll” which means “to crop the hair”. A “Pollard” meant something that had been Polled.
