Just found this, and what a lovely stroll! Just wondering why you pollard the Pawlonia?

7 Nov, 2015


We pollard the Paulonia to get the huge leaves instead of a 60 foot plus tree.

Thanks - do you still get flowers on your Pawlonia? We haven't any yet, but our tree is only a little 3-year old.

11 Nov, 2015


No, no flowers, but since the flowers are likely to be 60 feet up the tree, who can see them anyway?
