An interesting hornbeam pollard

Whilst looking at trees that persist with just strips of sapwood, I thought I’d share these photos of a hornbeam within the same country park as the oak tree mentioned in my previous post. This tree was different to all the others, as it quite literally is half a tree!

As you can see, my girlfriend isn’t as interested as I am!
A look from another angle.

    1. They’ve probably just never looked at a tree as a living being with complex systems in place to respond to stimuli in the most effective and efficient way possible. I suppose it wasn’t until I started really understanding trees that I could look at a tree and just go “wow”. Nonetheless, how anyone can not find this cool is beyond me!
