The Plane tree in The Main Courtyard that was pollarded in early June is showing no signs of life yet. When will it develop new buds to replace those it lost during pollarding?.
If all goes according to plan we will see up to two metres of growth in the coming season. This will create a dense, shade-giving canopy by mid-summer.
The branches will also begin thickening up and the characteristic knobs of a pollarded tree will beginning forming on the ends of the branches enhancing the dramatic sculptural form of the tree for next winter.
