Good title. It is clearly the making of pruning, isn't it? Nature goes its own way.

Proof that trees can change their minds. Thanks Draken.

mMMM, bit of a bender?

Oooooo, Mike! And thanks, Keith, for sharing this indecisive tree. Marilyn

Thanks Mike and Marilyn. This is a very impressive tree (type unknown due to ignorance), which you can see on the other shot showing the whole church.

I cannot swear either Keith, but it may be an Oak with a viral affection

It is good to see that recent surgery has taken place, I wonder if they have protected (listed) this one, or is it logged anywhere?

You are leaping about again, becoming prolific once more as tye weather improves, it's good fun, eh?

bye now!

Just determined not to waste rest days anymore!

Having looked at it full size, I am fairly confident it isn't oak as the bark is too smooth, but I looked through the book and can't find anything similar.

Perhaps when leaf is out, we may get more clues? 'till then, I remain clueless! ( my natural state!)
