Trimming

Matthew said he needed to trim a rickety hornbeam that was overhanging and threatening the welfare of a fence he's replacing- and I visualised the operation as a tasteful pruning. Well, he's done it now- and trimmed the tree right back down to the ground.

Leaving a naked stump.

"It'll grow back" he says cheerily. "Only we'll need to put a fence round it so the horses don't eat all the new growth."
