Clip and grow gone mad


I was walking down past the duck pond in work and spotted what I thought were birds nests in the trees so I headed over for a look.

As I got closer to the tree I realised they were at the ends of the branches so they couldn’t be birds nest.

They have been branches that overhung the path and have been broke at some stage and sprouted new growth from that point. They nearly look like someone has been tending to them to keep them in a perfect ball shape.

I looked a little closer to see if they had sprouted, been cut back and sprouted again which might explain the density of branches but they all come from the one point on the main branch.

Isn’t nature a weird creature. I’m just glad its on a proper tree and not a bonsai, branch selection would be a nightmare!
