Dear Andy

Firstly, my head has been above the proverbial rampart for the last 15
years. I've also suffered more holes than Bonnie and Clyde on their
last days vacation in the countryside!

Pollarding v pruning mature trees - No contest, no reasonable impetus
and no real answer. Completely different scenarios. You prune, you
create wounds, wounds will infect, you create problems. Simple, or am I
wrong?? Or are natural target pruning techniques enough defence to
evade potential pathogenic ingress?? Back to the clever people!!
