#BEFOREANDAFTER: when I studied forest ecology as part of my degree, (by far the most interesting module in that half, as it mainly involved us wandering around Keele’s 600-acre woods) we learned that size kills trees rather than age, as the tree is unable to support itself with food and water, so pruning them like so keeps them healthy. Obviously this has been done properly, trees don’t cut their own hair and neither should you. My mate Kevin had the last word on pruning AFAIK, “just trying to make it look more like a tree”. #forestry #pruning #pollarding #coppicing #park #richmond
