Caption: Pollarded sessile oak (Quercus petraea) trees. Ancient pollarded sessile oak trees. 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 supply of small wood, and has the incidental benefit of prolonging the lifespan of the tree. Photographed on Dunkery Beacon, Exmoor, Somerset, UK.
