Veteran Horse chestnut near the lake in Hatfield Forest which, together with many other veteran/ancient pollards, has been subject to a pioneering tree surgery "environmental arboriculture". This balances canopy, trunk and branches, mimicking the tree's natural process and reducing risk of collapse under weight of branches.
