[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a pollarded tree that is many years old. It is cut likre this so that in the past the owner of the field could graze his graas yet cut the tree every 10-20 years for firewood and building material. At this height of cutting the animals cannot browse off the new growth. After many years the trees become landscape features and these can last centurys.
Not much pollarding happens now a days in England.
Trees like this a great places for birds to nest in like the Barn owls and Jackdaws
