Severe Tree Trimming on Gorey Common

Pollarding is a pruning system (says Wikipedia) in which the upper branches of a tree are removed, promoting a dense head of foliage and branches. It has been common in Great Britain and Europe since medieval times and is practiced today in urban areas worldwide, primarily to maintain trees at a predetermined height.

But until new growth appears, it looks ugly as sin and dramatically changes the look of the area!

As it was...
