Pollarding Workshop

Join us for an interactive workshop on the practice of tree pollarding. Learn what coppicing and pollarding are, why this arboricultural practice is so important to the preservation of trees, and how it differs from the much discouraged practice of “topping.” Historically whole woodlands were coppiced or pollarded, which led to increased tree diversity and promoted the numbers and kinds of insects, birds and other creatures who lived among the trees and the open understory vegetation. Speaker William Bryant Logan is the author of multiple books and is on the faculty of the New York Botanical Garden. He has spent the last three decades working in trees. He is a certified arborist, and founder and president of Urban Arborists, Inc., a Brooklyn-based tree company.
