Caption

Pollarded alder tree (Alnus glutinosa) at a walled field boundary. The pollarding was recent. 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. Alder wood was traditionally used for making clogs in the North of England. Photographed in May, in Borrowdale, Cumbria, UK.
