  2. Every plant I’ve ever grown does pretty much exactly that. Cut a ways above a node and it’ll make the two under it longer.

    I didn’t know that applied to trees. That would take a tremendous amount of patience and respect for the enviroment.

  3. I have a gum tree out the back which blocks a view. I’ve never gotten around to remove the whole thing so I just chop it off about a metre from the ground and it just grows back like in the pic, and I cut it again. The tree and I, we got this thing going on

  4. “ancient” “14th century”

    I was also watching some Netflix series about aliens and they talked about an “ancient” myth that took place in the 1800s. Maybe it’s a translation thing.

  5. Medieval Europe practiced a similar technique called “pollarding.” It was used to make branches suitable for longbows and weaved stick construction, while also keeping leaves above the grazing range of deer and other wildlife.
