Photographer's Note

This photo shows a pollarded willow here in the region of my spa in the northeast of the federal state North Rhine-Westphalia. These trees are very common here and in former times the annually cut off flexible branches where used to bind baskets and other bins and even furniture.
Over the years these "heads" of the trees are generated, and there are some trees which become a real personality in the course of time. These "heads" with a lot of clefts often are used by birds which need a hollow for their nests, such as e.g. owls. Therefore preservation of these trees is important, even though most of baskets today are made out of plastics...
