'Cut off a branch of one of the mulberry trees (likely Morus alba) crossing into the cwown of a neighboring swamp-oak and just placed into a whole on a sunny spot this Summer. The leaves were gone in a week but the branches are now full of dormant buds, so it probably took.

Now, the other mulberries are quite tall in their competitive reaching up for light and mostly feeding the birds— still some good crop of ripe fallen berries. BUT I was thinking about pollarding this new tree once it is established for a year or two, so that we have berries within reach. Any suggestions/experience with this?
