Don't do this at home!!
A futile attempt at pruning an ornamental ‘Bradford Pear’ tree to keep it from blocking the name of the business. The tree was bought on a whim by somebody that wasn’t thinking about the tree's future size. The pitiful attempt to turn them into some kind of pollarded tree sure doesn’t seem to working. This tree has been pruned (hacked) this way for over 5 years. Don’t make this mistake! Sycamore/London Plane trees work much better and are the common tree for pollarding trees in Paris and other cities and countries.
