Caption: Pollarded ash tree (Fraxinus exclesior) in a field. The pollarding took place three years ago. Pollarding is a wood-management technique in which all growth is removed from the tree above 2-3 metres at intervals of several years. This provides a regular supply of wood, and has the incidental benefit of prolonging the lifespan of the tree. Ash wood was traditionally used for making tool handles, hockey sticks and cricket stumps. Photographed in May, in Borrowdale, Cumbria, UK.
