Clump of trees. Substantial sideways branches, craggy, flaking bark, evidence of beetle damage. Lots of dead bits. Bright red, healthy shoots with smooth surface rising vertically (pale brown/yellow at base). Leaf buds bright red. Not sure if shape is natural or due to the ends of branches being sawn off - a kind of pollarding? Growing at foot of cliff beside salt water - water comes right up to roots.
