..did you know?

"Poll" was originally a name for the top of the head, and "to poll" was a verb meaning 'to crop the hair'.

This use was extended to similar treatment of the branches of trees. A pollard simply meant someone or something that had been polled. Later, the noun "pollard" came to be used as a verb: "pollarding".

Pollarding has now largely replaced polling as the verb in the forestry sense. Pollard can also be used as an adjective: "pollard tree".
